First, this discussion is not pointed at anyone in particular, nor is it meant as criticism. It is a sincere question to which I am seeking an answer.
When did the act of taking some photos of your, pick one: car, bike, cat, dog, friend, etc become a "Photo Shoot"? I've been into photography since I was 13, some 33 years. I belong to boards supported by working professional photographers, weekend warriors and newby amatuers. No one talks about doing a "Photo Shoot". It's either a job, or just shooting some pics.
I have noticed the term "Photo Shoot" used on numerous occassions in this forum when someone is posting images of their cars, etc. I just find the use of this term curious. How many of you are actually working studio or location photographers? I know a a few, but not many, on this site.
Again, not looking to rile any feathers, just curious about the language.
