When you meet someone for the first time and they ask what do you do for a living and you tell them that you are a photographer. What is the next question they ask?

For me, it is always, what do you shoot? There are variations are: what sort of subjects do you photograph? Do you do weddings? And so on.

My answer for years and years was: just about anything. Or I don't have any particular subject. Or I just walk out of the house and photograph whatever is around. There wasn't any name for it that could sum it all up in one sentence. I did what they call street photography, or fine art photography, or urban photography... at last for years I could narrow it down to black and white, but I can't even do that any longer.

Anyway - what's the first question people ask you when you tell them you're a photographer, and have you come up with a good answer?
