I'd rather do photography, but I need a class or two. I'm better at writing & talking with people. :)

Photographer! I enjoy looking at and taking photographs and I think you can capture a lot more with a good photograph than you can with words.

I currently work full-time as both a reporter and photographer. No question, photography is much better.

I've met journalists at press releae parties and photographers at galleries. I think given the choice I'd be a photographer, they seem to enjoy work more...

I'd rather be a photographer. I took a lot of photography classes in high school and college and I really liked developing photos and doing things in the darkroom and messing around with all the settings on my SLR camera.
