And I'll be your assistant helping all of the women apply said lotion on the hard parts.

And then, I'd steer them over to our frozen Margarita cart. Hey, if kiddies get ice cream carts, adult deserve our frozen drinks, right?

Average person won't know what digital imaging or photo manipulator is either. They'll ask 'oh - you do wedding photos?' (nothing against those who do wedding photos)

Ya, I think ill stick with "Im in photography"..

I tried it at a braai the other day and it worked like a charm, I didnt have to explain anything and the girl didnt even look confused. Ofcourse she still doesnt know what I do but who cares.. This technique can be used for randomers

Does anyone know Max Brooks' Zombie Survival Guide? Now we should have a step by step guide like that

I used to say "commercial artist" rather than retoucher, especially on bank-type forms that ask for a profession, but now that my job is 12% photography I just say "photographer." It's easier.

I usually just call myself a "photo artist"-- it covers creative photography and retouching.

Or... Why don't we all just say we're retouchers. Eventually everyone will know what that is.
