That is true for some programmers working to spec, but it is true for
some photographers working to spec, or copywriters working to spec
(such as, the client requires a particular type of image or text for
an ad campaign).  Other times, programmers and photographers are just
making it up without any limits.

If one's working to spec, creativity has clear limits.
This isn't massively different across occupations.
