How many professional photographers bother with color management?

Color management equals freedom lol!

Good colour frees you up to do other things, like photography. This point was really driven home when I started doing art reproduction. There's no margin for error and messing around with test prints is a big waste of time and money. I use a Passport Color checker to profile the camera. We also use a "Spyder elite studio" kit to profile all our monitors and printers. Actually, profiling printers is done rarely as most our suppliers will build a custom profile for us for their particular product. This gives me accuracy from capture to print. The only other thing that affects colour is you lighting. Paying attention to mixed light temperatures and colour rendering index will also improve consistency and quality of your images. So if my images look weird, it's because I made them that way and not by chance lol!
