To dream of a photographer represents feelings about being adept or intelligent about making anything remembered looking as good as possible. Expertise at projecting yourself or others in a positive light. Intelligence about lasting impressions. Intelligence about making lasting lifelong impressions. An aspect of yourself that is a lasting impression expert.
Negatively, dreaming about a photographer may reflect an aspect of yourself that is adept or expert at creating lasting positive impressions based on dishonesty. Intelligence about lying to look good or dishonestly make good impressions. Focusing too much on making good impressions instead of being yourself. Doing deed or favors for people so they will always remember you in a good light.
Example: A woman dreamed of using her real life photographer skills. In waking life she was very focused on trying to get a job. In this case the photographer symbolism may have reflected her feelings about her own ability to project or market herself with an excellent resume or make a lasting impression with a job interview.
