Other, less impressed people just call it COPYING. He gets a PHOTOGRAPH somebody else has taken, and makes a COPY of it.
In other words, he LOOKS at the photograph and DRAWS what he sees.
A portrait painter looks at his subject and paints/draws what he sees - Would you call that copying?
A landscape artist looks at the landscape and paints/draws what he sees - Would you call that copying?
A still-life artist looks at the bowl of fruit and paints/draws what he sees -Would you call that copying?
Apart from that - if he'd made a copy of somebody else's photograph, it would be another photograph, therefore it wouldn't be a drawing.
