  • The X-Pro2 is likely to be released October/November. Rumoured to have better all round performance than the X-T1 and 24mp+ possibly a few more/new bells and whistles over the X-T1. This might give ...
  • I'm sure you'd feel more peeve'd if they turned up with rolls of fat instead of living off their caffeine and switching to doughnuts instead. We can't hold models to ridiculous standards of ...
  • If you want a nice shiny new camera/lenses and can afford it, just get one. Don't start out by trying to justify it as a possible future business venture. However if you're thinking "I can't ...
  • I like the term "competent" as there are many "veteran" photographers who are just as bad as many new "professionals". The number of old timers who despite shooting digital refuse to utilise all ...
  • My aren't some of us getting a little catty! Nothing to do with the fact you full timers would love the extra £15k a year this part-timer is netting on top of his salary/pension?
  • There is no real "market" for this. Your profit is very small. You have no retail location to offer passing trade and a percentage of your existing customers will probably not migrate to a new owner. ...
  • Kodak, with its analysts, economists, accountants, managers, consultants, etc... did what big businesses are forced to do in the face of insurmountable barriers. They bit the bullet and for all ...
  • I disagree. Memories are what is left over; and I'd rather spend the money on fantastic food, drink, DJ, venue, basically everything tangible to make fantastic memories for all, not on photos to ...
  • I agree with you that wedding photographers are over-priced. They charge $2,000 for what amounts to two, maybe three days work, to shoot and edit your wedding and say they have to charge that much ...
  • I confess upfront I'm no expert on this topic. However, my initial instinct is that unless the "rent" is a very nominal/token amount, the gallery is taking you for a ride wanting both rent and 30% ...
  • My peeve is the disparity between the anecdotal/exaggerated stories that are touted regarding photographer earning potential on dpreview and the real world earning potential for 99% of photographers. ...
  • If they're a not-for-profit it doesn't automatically mean they're not able to pay and might just be trying to pull a fast one to get a freebie. What you have to remember is that "not-for-profit" ...
  • Replied in Over and out.
    Again, Jacques, you're taking this too personally. My post was simply an observation of how there is often a duplicity between how people on this forum say the world of making sales should work ...
  • So answer the question directly with a yes or no. Have you or have you not, in your entire career, sold yourself/services on the virtues of hiring you as a competent professional over a potentially ...
  • Jacques, I don't wish to make a bigger deal of this than it already is, or create further ill-feeling... However I can't see how, as a professional career photographer, you could have gone through ...
  • If you read further up the thread you'll see I clarified my position. I'm not saying that a $200 piece of software is bad and people shouldn't use it. What I'm saying is hypocritical is the ...
  • We obviously have different views on how to communicate. For me this forum isn't about the nicely nicely soft touch. It's about frank and honest discussions. The whole point of this particular post was
  • The hypocrisy is that if a business owner paid a student, intern or guy next door $200 for photos and they turned out bad, some members on this site will and have berated people for doing so, ...
  • Out of interest what camera and lens combination did you use? Any chance of posting the photos without the EXIF data stripped so we can have a little more information to aid us? Also some bigger ...
  • Took the words out of my mouth.
