Discussion of 摄影师/攝影師
To include posts you need to register at trainchinese.com
Since 师 is "master" and 摄影师 is photographer, how do I say a master of photography? For example, Ansel Adams is more than a 摄影师，he is a 师的摄影， right?

Hi Zhan DaHe! In 摄影师, 师 takes on the meaning "person skilled in a certain profession". So 摄影师 is "someone who is skilled in photography as his or her profession".
If you want to say "master of photography", you may say 摄影大师 (大师: dà shī [n] great master; master).
