Still wouldn't help The Clueless. One of the themes of his thread is that no one wants a pro photographer when they can shoot an event themselves. This has evolved to epic proportions where EVERYONE is shooting everything all the time. Photography's no longer a skilled activity in the public's mind. To succeed today you need a niche. Event shooting, including low end weddings, is gone to the amateur.

mirrorless is good! The stuff I see coming out of the Fuji x100s is better than my Nikons. Zack Arias and David Hobby call it the new Leica. Bye bye DSLR!

If one has nothing different to sell, then the public will not beat a path to your door. Shoot like

everyone else and you become just another face in the crowd. Stand out with your style and

products and personality and you'll have clients. I have yet to see ONE amateur at a wedding

who knew how to pose a family formal. NOT ONE..........
