A damn huge mess up, this time round the whole nation is embarassed:
Solstice - Creative Entertainment • Outrage Over The Photographs Of The United States Olympic Team
If I am not wrong, Joe Klamar is not a newbie, he is an experienced pro in the news and journalism genre, BUT ending up in a position requiring to conceptualized portraits in studio environment for advertising and publicity purposes, sometime totally different from his own specialty.
If a seasoned pro can mess up this big, what makes the guy who bought a camera recently thinks he should be offering his services for money? Current situation everywhere is saturated with many excited new hobbyists trying to be professional photographers. Not trying to be a hater but hey, just sick of the dilution of the value of photography.
