Clay Cook is a talented guy, probably very friendly. "World-renowned" ? Is this opinion or based on reporting ?

Ryan Cooper's picture

World-renowned merely implies that an individual's talent and skill is respected and recognized around the world. The platform for the recognition can very, it doesn't have to specifically be celebrity fame. Cook's volume of high-quality work with high profile clients while also being a respected educator in a variety of countries meets that criteria.

The term, however, is certainly very open to both interpretation and subjectivity. A great photographer to one audience may be an inept one to another audience. The same is true here. There is no objective measurement for "world-renowned."

I wouldn't worry about it too much though, if you disagree with my assigning him such a description no big deal either way.

Wow, very good response/retort, l like it. Mind if I use it?
I thought the same thing as Rex, but your reply made me rethink the appellation.

Like I asked, opinion or reporting ? There is a difference. The world is a big place. An experienced editor will call you out on several of your comments. I know what "world-renowned" means so I challenged you on that. I like Fstoppers a lot and consider myself a fan and frequent visitor. The website has become successful enough to embrace and welcome experienced editors and editorial standards. The AP style book is a good resource worth considering. Words matter.

It's opinion. This isn't a news site, it's "an online community aimed at educating and inspiring photographers, videographers, and creative professionals".

I enjoyed the live stream and appreciate learning about it here. Thanks, Ryan

Watched whole webcast and surprised not to see a sales pitch about new course, coaching program or "School" and 15 minutes left to buy it.

Thanks for relevant info.
