I don't understand the scenario, cameras are cheap, besides most people are taking picts with their cell phones, but refuse to take pictures for their own work. I take my own pictures and got better as time went by, even sold my photos, built my own collection and now my websites enjoy a solid, colorful and copyright free set of photos, all mine except from few guest writers using their own. It's more than 4 digits public (the images) and even more offline on my private hard disk.
The reasons I think people refuse to take their own pics and use other people work are:
- They are lazy
- They suck at taking pics
- Are afraid, too doubtful of their own work
- Or they just like yours even more...
