Is animation and graphic design in the photography and videography category? [on hold]

I am trying to compremise with a friend amd business partner but I dont seem to be getting through. I am an animator and graphic designer i do cgi and vfx for videos and ads alike as well as photos. My business partner is upset because she believes that is competition amd the things i do should be left in her area of work and i tried so hard to explain it isnt the same thing and im not doing this for profit so i wouldnt interfere with her clients. She anf her mother are caring on the fact that its the same and its insulting. Cam you help me figure this out? Please and thank you.
