    Frankly I don't care what equipment that guy is carrying or his skills. It's the attitude.

    I've scolded strangers in public for other things (including a guy in the train who kept trying to peer down the blouse of the lady sitting next to him, and pple for jumping queue).

    Seriously, some people need to be humiliated before they learn their lesson.

    No lar, ask him not to bull. He is not a pro. It's the way one works that dictates. Proper Pros do not block people and handle sitations tactfully. In fact, many pros would go as far as not blocking anybody in the audience as far as possible (be it events or weddings or forum), doesn't mean pro = licence to block. Of course there are always blacksheeps.

    Basically like i said, it's how one works that dictates. Good service, flexibility, able to deliver quality product, timeliness is what makes customers come back or give you referrals. I am actually a nobody in Photography and I do not advertise at all, but at least i still get jobs due to referrals 100%.

    It's the same with so many other jobs, not only photography. All are jobs in this society, so big deal with the name and title.

    Sometimes it boils down to one's upbringing.

    He's a dickhead. I wouldn't lose sleep over this....

    just admit it.
    whether the guy who use high end is arrogant or not.. thats a different story.
    now lets stop this bickering and lets all move on.
    Hehehehe... move on and then come back again....

    No lar... its not high end.... he also not using MF what.... D2X is still a toy to some pros....

    If he was using P&S, then you will get double the post! Why?? Coz many shooters would qualify as pro already....

    He's just another wannabe... using 200mm for awards.... maybe want to have close up of shaking hands... heheheh!

    Don't worry... with so much post about him... he will definitely be spotted henceforth:
    Description:
    1) 40s
    2) Balding
    3) Specs
    4) Male
    5) Chinese
    6) D2X - got bao ba zhang (gaffer) or not, got use original strap or other brands
    7) 2 flashes (acutally I remember one old man with this ! )
    8) Arrogant "I'm a pro" attitude....

    Any signature camera bags he is carrying?

    Anyone has a police photokit to spare?? Maybe can cut and paste here... Hahaha!
    Maybe start posting suspect pictures here!

    I don't think pros really care about what equipment they use, unless of course they need certain characteristic from a particular equipment. You hand them a Polaroid camera and they can still able to make good pictures.

    Really doubt this. Try giving an ixus or slim casio to some pro and they can't figure out where the flash or lens is hidden. Out of habbit, I try to stick my face on the LCD everytime I switch camera.

    You can count me out. I am not good enough to shoot events, can't afford D2X and don't make tsk tsk tsk sound (wife bans it).

    So now you can narrow your search to 165,000 Singapore photographers.

    He is a skunk and low self esteem person with no sense of self confidence.
    Therefore by belittle others he falsely boost his little sense of security.

    He is also try exhibiting to others that he is a "CAMERA MAN" with Pro-camera....Haaa....haaa..

    So far no shootings by photographer yet...... Basically they carry weapon around cos they always move around with expensive equipment...... and some of their equipment are not only expensive... but also hard to find..... I think thats why they have to find ways to protect themselves....
