No, sure don't.

Do not make judgements.

So why begin a thread?

I will not explain the situation.

Oh, right, to discourage other potential competitors.

I think everybody is behaving very well so far in refraining from personal attacks. I am surprised at how many have chipped in. The themes coming out seem to be:

1 my area isn't the best

Maybe or maybe not. You've declined to mention where you're located.

2 its a bit silly to start with everything before knowing if anything will sell
3 photography doesn't make anybody much money

False. False. False.

4 the economy is killing luxury spending

Some, but not entirely.

5 advertising doesn't work

False. False. False.

6 networking mostly works

Networking done right is crucial. I guess getting 1 1/2 out of 6 right isn't bad...
