Photography is actually one of the fastest growing service industries. it is used to capture moments that are actually meaningful. Every photographer isn't just a emo kid that sucks, and they don't just take pictures of converses, that is very overrated. Real photographers know how to take an ordinary object and put meaning into it, meaning that represents a cause. They give photos a voice.
I am a photographer, i major in photography, and am one of the least emo kids you'll ever know, i'm a sophmore and being recruited by colleges, so obviously, i don't suck, and i have never taken a picture of converse in my life.
