  • Agent = potentially good idea if they are good. Marketing student doing it between studies, social life, etc = might as well burn your cash.
  • I don't think it's about taste, Rangefinder by all accounts is a serious magazine for professional photographers; so it's probably an appropriate place for powerful/somewhat shocking subject ...
  • Sometimes the "naive view" is the fresh set of eyes that isn't too caught up in the situation to see the wood for the trees, I have never seen fewer studios or as many people working for as little ...
  • As usual, lovely work, Ashley. Though we must be careful not to confuse the exception with the rule!
  • That old chestnut, "you need to market your business, blah, blah..." Marketing attracts the eyes of people, it doesn't necessarily turn them into customers nor expand their budgets. I ...
  • Yeah of course, in the same way some adult subjects are plain rotten and uncooperative. Though I suspect 9/10 times with boisterous kids it's a lack of child friendly social skills and patience ...
  • Exactly! Sometimes kids know they can get away with things with their parents, but if a stranger says "hey come on let's stopping running around and take a nice photo of you for Mammy and Daddy" ...
  • Then we'll just have to agree to disagree. As I think my point stands. I believe the minimum standard is to fix white balance issues, colour casts, etc. It's not about business models it's about ...
  • Of course. But any professional should be delivering their images with the editing/PP you describe already done in the JPEGs they provide. Correcting what you describe is the minimum expectation.
  • That's just an outdated cliche that's bandied about. High res JPEGs have just as much usefulness as RAW files.
  • Reminds me of old annual school children portraits. In my opinion it's old enough to be outdated and look bad, but not so old that it has any sort of retro/old chic appeal. PS your model is disturbing!
  • I know they say there's no such thing as bad publicity, but pretending your company charged with safeguarding data lost all of its customer's data, seem to be taking the concept a little too far ...
  • Replied in A tale of woe
    So his business, along with the 1535 websites and databases of the businesses he hosts are now lost. Makes a photographer delivering substandard wedding photographs look a little insignificant. I ...
  • I think Leecamera's version is actually more accurate. There seems like such a discord between reality and the pseudo reality people on this forum dream up. I speak to friends and family and ...
  • No you weren't. But you are uninformed. Ritalin has side effects, including nervousness, lack of appetite, insomnia, weight loss and dizziness. All not very compatible with a toddler who's ...
  • I won't use the words I want to use because I'd get banned, but think of the most vile word you can bring to mind and you are a massive one! You're calling a child with special needs an "a'hole" ...
  • Sounds like a lot of two year old kids to me, regardless of ADHD! At this age, to my admittedly limited understanding, the line between a kid who is a bit "naughty" and a medical diagnosis of ADHD ...
  • You almost make a good argument, but you're not quite there. A better analogy would be a restaurant that only opens on weekends because of low demand, wants to charge customers $100 dollars for a ...
  • I think we're going off on tangents. The point isn't about arguing over making a living by breaking down the hourly rate of $850 and discussing non-billable hours. That's not the client's concern. ...
  • I refer you to the two posts directly above this one.
