think no need to add oil to fire or too many interesting suggesitons. it might be some miscommunication afterall.
Well guys, ken capitulated. No reasons were given, except jodie's request. Now, on the subject of request, that was one big mother of a request with guns blazing. Read it carefully guys, it's not a request other than the word request.
Anyway, really none of my business. But feels our freedom to shoot and post took a meaningful step backward today. The threats to this freedom abounds, and if we don't draw the line somewhere, in no time, we won't be able to shoot didily ...
luckily I nearly only shoot portraits ...
One factor to think about is that the people here don't seem to be paying much heed to these "requests" and I noticed a couple more new threads posting up photographs of the day's events.

For all i care about this, I just post what they want, obviously its up to ppl here to voice out and say that its wrong for them to do this. Firstly-not official, 2ndly, I worked twice under them as an official and was severly underpaid with my parthners. Those events were hit events.
Secondly, I no longer have association whith them coz they managed to get even mods to help them cover events at really horrific prices. The only rsn I helped them is because I was once an intern under their prod' house. But since I graduated, they shldn't stick these prices up. I agree with Drudkh that its shitty of them to ask me to post their conveyment on Ken111111's thread. But lets us all kindly refrain from adding oil into the fire, let's stick with a plain discussion armed at them.
Ps. Is the thread aimed at me or at my xcompany ?I just need to know and handle the situation before everything takes a serious downturn.
jodie, I don't think the threads and comments are aimed at you personally. However, up till now, you were the figure head standing right smack up front and in the middle. Glad you come out to state your case. What no one here will understand is why you helped them, and you did not address this in your post.Originally Posted by jodie_tan
Well I dont have a habit of posting generally, plus dont want to embarrass myself with lousy pictures.

"zhou ren you hao bao" as the saying goes, i just want to help as much as i can before i regretOriginally Posted by Deadpoet
...but however, i do regret helping them in this case. After all, I hope they close down
next time we hold CS outing to such public model events and see what they can do..
eat. drink. shoot
Just learned from an enquiry with my contact at the events company that there's more than meets the eye. Will update when I have firmer information to share.

Well, I got an idea - the organiser should have announced a photo competition in conjunction with the contest itself. Then, many photog would send in their best shot. This is killing 2 birds with one stone. And then, get some sponsors like Nikon, Cathay to donate some prizes.
So, in future, photogs should not get conned into some stupid competition just in case it is for the benefit of the organisers to get some great picture for almost nothing.
I love big car, big house, big lenses, but small apertures.
sadly 99% that's simply the main reason. 1) they get more publicity, and 2) free photos.Originally Posted by smallaperture
From The New Papers The final of The New Face 2005 will be held at Takashimaya Square on 7 Oct.. And does these mean another repeat of history?
That New Face of the Year is by New Paper, different competition.
