This weekend I'm down in Matagorda, Tx covering the Texas Oilmans Charity Invitational Fishing Tournament (TOCIFT). Everyone gets a badge with their name and such on it for registration and for the second year in a row, mine reads:
Macon Leiper: Protographer
Honestly, I like the term! It's definitely easier than writing out "professional photographer" all the time. And I feel it gets the point across just as well, if not better. I could market myself as Houston's only official Protographer!
The branding material is already in the works! My friend Lisa Vickers, an animator out of Austin, TX, made an awesomely retro 8-bit portrait of me!
Anyway, I thought y'all might get a kick out of this. It's not every day that a typo goes in your favor!
