Ok this might open a bit of a can of worms as there could be different views. What in your view makes a good photographer? There are those who are technically excellent (ie win competitions because they tick all the theory boxes with a photo), those who are commercially excellent (I guess you could put instgrammers who make a living from insta presence / influencing). There are those who can instruct photography very well. Of course you can fit in to all of these categories but often its one of these. This came about from a photographer friend who knows their stuff having been in the industry for years but admits they will never make their fortune from photography.
