Ken Griffey Jr. was a great baseball player. He IS the Seattle Mariners and a member of the National Baseball Hall of Fame. At the series in Japan, Griffey was in the photographers’ pit. There’s even a picture of him figuring out how to use the camera. One article called him a “natural”. Did anyone purchase any of his photos? When you go to Getty Images you see photos of him, not the pictures he took. He may photograph his son with the best equipment but that doesn’t make him a photographer.
