I take a lot of pictures. I work under marketing and I do a variety of
documents. For the super-glossy marketing stuff, we have a professional
photographer come in. For our data sheets, I take all the pics.
Before I decided to do the pics myself, I talked to four or so different
photographers in the area. Some specialized in technical stuff. They had a
lot of clients, and they could do other types of stuff. All of it kept them
quite busy.
