  • A 458 Italia sells for what $300,000+ A Corvette Stingray sells for about $70,000. Is the Ferrari three times more the car? Three times better? Hardly, but Ferrari will sell every 458 they build,...
  • Yes, digital photography is not free. Film photography need not cost a working pro much if any more and could cost much less. All too many pro-photographers feel an incessant need to buy new...
  • Replied in No
    Good for you, however you do not speak for all photographers nor would your view represent what all potential customers may thing and desire.
  • Replied in I was wrong
    In business, any business one can't rest on the idea of if I'm good or if I sell a good product, jobs/sales would follow. List out some of the most well know photographers and  test the general...

    A little story, One day Pablo Picasso was sitting in a cafe. To occupy his time he took to doodling on a napkin. A few minutes pass  by and a lady walks by, she notices the drawing. She stops and...
  • The sessions likely do not take 1/2 hr. This type of photography  is the type that is run through a proverbial meat grinder in 15 min. blocks. So one could very well shoot 2 dozen or so sessions...
  • The Portrait Scene GROUPON COUPON is a loss leader. Yes it allows a photo shoot plus one machine print from 1 pose picture package and 1 low rez photo CD for $19.00 and yes many of the people who...

  • "Am I my brother's keeper?"

  • Replied in about anon
    Sorry, but if a post is clear, descriptive and even attempts to back up the points why would such a post be worthless? Attaching a real name  still carries little weight as  even at that you don't...
  • Replied in about anon
    Aholes will use their real names at times too. But it should not matter  what handle one uses when on discussion forums. Judge  them by the content they post.  A post shall have merit based on what...
