Photographer Appreciation Month: 5 Reasons Photographers Rock

Submitted by on October 26, 2012 – 5:14 amNo Comment

October is Photographer Appreciation Month, and Pelican Products, makers of heavy-duty, protective cases for photography gear, has always held the work of photographers in very high regard. As such, we’re recognizing Photographer Appreciation Month by outlining four reasons various types of photography rock.

1. News:Documentary and news photographers record important events and moments from around the world in order to inform and educate the masses back home. Oftentimes, danger is inherent to the job as these fearless photographers put themselves in the thick of the action. This form of photography not only yields some of the most action-filled, compelling visual content, but also serves the grander aim of education and democracy

2. Beauty: All forms of photography can be aesthetically pleasing, but certain photos convey breathtaking beauty. Be it nature photography, studio photography, or certain forms of macrophotography—capturing the vivid colors of tiny molecules—photography enriches our lives with visual beauty.

3. Advertising: While some may reject this form of photography as contrived, some commercial photography can deliver great beauty and great utility by bringing the benefits of certain products, services, buildings, or places to our attention.
4. Memories: Perhaps the greatest service of photography in everyday life, it captures important moments in our lives. From a Kindergarten graduation to a wedding to an 80th birthday party of a dearly beloved grandparent, photography celebrates memories, recording life as it happens.
Personal photography brings people back to a certain time, place, and feeling.

Whether professional or amateur—wielding a telephoto lens or a smartphone—Pelican builds all its photography cases with the same rugged level of protection. From the 1560 Hardback case for storing multiple camera bodies and lenses to the Pelican ProGear i1015 for point-and-shoot camera or smartphone protection, Pelican Products is proud to salute photographers everywhere this Photographer Appreciation Month.
