Unfortunately, I don't think it's a huge stretch to think that many of us may see our professions being replaced by AI.
I understand that many of us don't want to hear about the doom and gloom of how everything is going to be terrible and we have nothing to hope for in the future. In all honesty, I don't think it's going to be anywhere near as bad as some of us may believe. Having said that, it would be very foolish of us to assume that our jobs could never be impacted by technology and artificially intelligent machines. Plenty of industries have seen their fair share of change and "updates," because ultimately, companies are interested in their bottom lines. I think as photographers, it's important for us to consider these potential changes and make adjustments accordingly. Even right now, the photography industry isn't exactly the easiest one to be in, and there are so many factors that can diminish a business. Being complacent is probably not the smartest thing we can do right now, and it's important that we prepare for worst-case scenarios. One of the best ways to do this is to learn and improve your skills and techniques. These don't necessarily need to be specifically related to taking a picture but ones that can complement your business.
As discussed in the video linked above, companies like Disney are already replacing many of their portrait photographers, so it's important that we remain vigilant and prepared.
