Professional Instagrammers, aka "influencers," may be the most widely-hated group of people in modern society. Nevertheless, they persist—one photoshoot at a time. But if you think it's annoying having your feed interrupted by an influencer's compulsive displays of narcissism, imagine what it's like to have them as your colleagues. This is the reality for many professional photographers. As you can imagine, influencers often have absurd and outrageous demands that go way beyond what most people would expect from a photographer. But at least they pay well! Lol JK. They pay in "exposure"—if at all.

Had an "influencer" try to set up a shoot with me. When I mentioned my price she was shocked because she was under the assumption that I was going to pay her for some reason.
