Dan, I was trying to make the same point. No one seems to understand how vast the scope of commercial photograph is. Why they are laboring in the small return, retail arena is beyond me. And being so in debt buying big machines that will be obsolete in months rather than selling what you know and your point of view is amazing to me.

While the corporate market was not good for me in 2009 and 2012 it has recovered well and promises to return a good income over the next few years.

If you have recurring corporate clients you need only educate them once and then you enjoyed repeated low friction projects. If you stil do retail photography you have to sell, train, educate and cajole every bride that comes through your door. It's a very, very inefficient way to make money.

Can we please have some topics here in "professional photography" where we actually discuss advertising photography? Architectural photography? Corporate photography?

The constant mantra of babies and brides is horrifying.
