There are a bunch of clowns out there, but he has to be one of the biggest. I looked at his site a couple of times. I found his shtick comical in a bad way. I guess you get what you deserve if you take his advice.

Seriously though, all this relates to the massive increase in people now taking up photography as a result of digital making it less time consuming and so on. There's a massive market out there just waiting to spend their dollars and you can't blame people for using the cult of personality to get some.

With all this reality TV and a celebutard obsessed press, we live in a world where style and marketing triumph over substance and intelligence every day. I guess photography is no different.

In the days (so recent!) when the only way to get a review was to buy a magazine written by specialist journalists we could be assured of a reasonable level of technical and artistic competence. Now we could probably train a chimp to do it on line if we tried hard....

(Note - I copyright the concept of any primate-based photography reviews and will be bagging http://www.chimpingbychimp.com later....!)
