When I see the phrase “second shooter” in regards to a second wedding photographer, I always think of assassinations or school shootings. Yes, I know that’s totally creepy! And the abbreviation STD still makes me think of the other STD.

That’s no good! It does sound like that though. : (

The abbreviations and terminology around here definitely takes some getting used to.

I find that a lot of abbreviations in general are unnecessary or could be phrased better when it comes to photography. As an example I HATE the term “photog.” It’s nails on a chalkboard for me. It’s one thing if you don’t have enough room in a tweet, but when it makes it into daily speech. Yikes.
Another one that means something different to everyone is “digital negative.” That really needs to go away altogether!
We define our roles as primary and support photographer. There really always needs to be a lead photographer, but it is difficult to classify the second photographer, especially if the role is different for different companies.
