    Hmm.. looking at his Biography.. no easy person.. but then again, over in US, that's justified. The people there will pay for the artistic form, not just service and certain people in the society level there are able to afford it.

    how come his light sphere dun hav a cap?

    went thru this bio, from pharmarcy to photog to inventor and wealth builder. definately someone with determination to get things his way. He dose see the limitations he faced with photography as opportunities for product market.

    @ USD$10K per hour, he sure knows how to charge

    The cap is used only when the ceiling are too low, or you want to point the flash light direct to the subjuct.

    Wah! US$120K is still a lot even in US standard... unless husband is provided in the package. But honestly some photographers post a ridiculous price which he will never expect anyone to take, but this makes his next best price cheap in comparison.

    Come on Paul,
