    To get good artistic pictures, it's not necessary to use "good quality sharp, focused, noise free, well exposed pictures". It's mostly on composition and how the photographer sees it as "art".

    Hence, one does not need good equipment to produce fine works of "art".
    What is art or not also depends on the name of the person.

    A kid splash paint will get a whipping from mum.

    Jackson Pollock splash paint on empty canvas - priceless.

    "Fine art" photography going in that direction?

    It's not the name, it's the context. Let Jackson Pallock splash paint on MRT cars .. and ask a mother about the splashes her 3y old has done trying to depict himself and mom

    who knows.. fine art photographers might be able to sell their art like some painters did. 30k a piece of art that many might not understand.

    Here's my view.

    Having a deep pocket means you don't have to work thus having a lot of time to practice photography. One can also hire a really good photographer as his/her mentor.

    I shan't talk about equipment since it's a really over-discussed topic.

    Lets minimize some variables.
    What do you expect comparing two photographers having the same skills and talent but one having more resources than the other?


    Although sometimes, challenges and limitations brings out creativity of a person
