Photographers

Anyone who uses a lens to focus light onto a light-recording medium, be it film or sensor, is a photographer. And photography is art. But this definition is overly broad. So, to be considered a photographer for the purposes of this website, the artist must produce photos for the purpose of exhibiting them in a physical art gallery.

Painters who take photographs for use as reference images for paintings don't count as photographers.
