Photographers have been going through this for the last 10 years. Digital cameras are far easier to use than film cameras, and now everyone is carrying around a little camera around in their pocket. Some magazines and newspapers have fired all their in-house photographers hoping to cash in on "social media" and free content from their readers and users.
Photographers are dead! Everyone is a photographer!
Or not... an amateur with an iphone is not going to produce professional quality images. People pissed off that uncle billy did a shit job photographing their wedding get exactly what they deserve. Newspapers with shitty photographic content will die. (or continue to die)
