Here is an interesting story. And I do wonder what the industry thinks about this.

I guess there is a trend of celebrities taking on any job they want,simply becasue they are celebrities. It is not uncommon to have celebrities turning chefs, fashion designers, actors, singers and many (MANY) other jobs. Now, Kendall Jenner (wink, wink) has turned into a professional,  already hired photographer.

According to Yahoo news, a recent episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, featured Jenner asking Tyga and friends to pose for her, snapping their photos, not on a smartphone, but on a Nikon camera. She even goes to saying “It doesn’t just take like that, you have to, like, wait for me to focus“… Well, someone saw that she can command a camera and hired Jenner to shoot Kaia Gerber – Cindy Crawford’s model daughter – for an ‘American Beauties’ piece for LOVE.

Or maybe they were just joking, and the episode had nothing to do with the fact that Jenner  was hired.

At any rate, there you have it, Kendall Jenner is now officially a hired photographer.  Below are the instagram shot that Jenner uploaded followed by the photo from LOVE.

    Honestly, who cares? People from all walks of life join the world of professional photography everyday.

    Ok this is click bait. She’s a celebrity, yes. But what gives any of us more of a right to “be a photographer” anymore than her? None. Who knows, I haven’t seen her work; maybe she’s quite good.

      I agree. She has to be good at/for something.

    Professional photographer is a dying profession. Accept it.

    I couldn’t care less what this family does. If she wants to now be a paid photographer good for her. But she might want to learn how to use a reflector or something LOL

    Frankly, if your job can be “stolen” by someone who just picked up a camera – you don’t deserve to get paid.

    “I guess there is a trend of celebrities taking on any job they want,simply becasue they are celebrities.”

    I guess writers shouldn’t be worried about you “stealing” their job based on your spelling… I don’t see how this is trying something “just becasue” she is a celebrity. Maybe she honestly likes taking pictures and wanted to take a photo with a real camera. Good for her, the photo isn’t that bad… Psersonally the most dissapointing part of this article is the fact that she’s using a Nikon. Just kidding, great cameras are great cameras regardless of their manufacturer. Just like good photos are good photos regardless of the photographer.

    I’m fairly sure that every photographer, in some point in their life/career has (ab)used their connections to gain ‘unfair’ access to either a client, model, location, equipment, studio or some other thing that gave them an advantage over the competition. How is this different?

    With trees growing out of her clients head I think ‘true professional photographers’ have. Toning to worry about.

      The model is pretty. The sunlight on her hair was nice. That’s about it. The pose had her face scrunched up in an unflattering manner. Her face was completely covered in shadows. Her right eye was all dark while her left eye had too much white. Her eyes had no catch lights at all. Her background was so bright and busy it competed for attention with the model. But…whatever rocks your boat.

    This makes sense from a marketing standpoint. Would this have gotten any play on any website if it wasn’t Jenner??? Nope. This is the new way product will be marketed, no different than David Beckham’s son shooting a campaign for Burberry. It’s money better spent for these companies. Get used to it.
