Have you figured out how to get your Facebook business page to say "Photographer"? I see that some photographers are listed as "Photographer" but I can't find that option. Is it a special invite only club or something?

Doesn't work?

I tried following this method, but my edit page looks nothing like that :(

I can't even find an "Add Category" section on my page.

Doubtless as soon as I post this I will immediately see the add category section which was there all along.

Some people use professional services, some use artist. The category really doesn't affect anything.

Edit Page > Update Page Info > Edit (Category)

Some first level categories allow you to type a second level one. Personally I chose mine over what information gets displayed in the light blue section just below the profile picture.

Sure it does, it makes it easier for facebook™ to know more about your life.
