francoisphoto: Its really very simple and basic.
Anyone that is a Photographer by Profession will know all the mistakes made by Klamar and his level of expertise and as Paul Farace puts it, he was unprepared and no Pro Photog goes unprepared into any job, especially not a job with this caliber. He tried his best not knowing the results and a real Pro will do his job, knowing how they will look like with only a bit of fine tuning in the end. Almost any Pro Photographer, 99% or more would have done an exponentially better job. Pro Photogs know this and everyone else's comments on the contrary shows where they stand in the food chain of Photography!

I remember taking images like these for sporting events, but only once was I unprepared and out of my comfort zone, and the images weren't up to par and eventually used, something which I'm today still ashamed of... but I've learnt from that and a Photorapher with Klamar's stature should know better and not shoot with the same skill and mindset I had at the age of 18 or earlier. An established Photographer would value his brand and his name too much to release these images. Rather get paid and release nothing than release such a bunch of tripe. It was a poor choice but it also showed some Photographers their level of expertise and experience and what has turned out a bad thing for Klamar could be a good inspiration to other who already knows how to be a better Photographer.

DaveBowman: Regardless of whatever concept was behind these pictures (or is now hurriedly trying to be attached), these photographs are really terrible. Bad lighting, awful poses, creased backdrop. It's not about perfection with photoshop, it's about photography 101 - basic portraiture. The photographer, I've never heard of him, but if he was payed to do this job I'd have expected something considerably better than this, unprepared or not. I'm sure it's quite possible to show athletes as ordinary people without throwing ALL of the basics out the window. The worst set of portraits I've seen in a long long time.

I strongly agree with DaveBowman.

I think Fuji sensors with Fujinon lenses would be a great compliment to one another and would be competition to both Nikon and Canon. If they continue to use Generic Nikon bodies I think it would benefit them instead of going in house and testing the market.
