    oh.. to add my comment..

    I have seen n met people carrying expensive equipments (i.e: 1Ds mk2, D2x, 20D, etc) but they do not use tripod for taking sunset.. I bet they have very strong muscular hands :P

    In the photographic world, there are the following people:
    1. Critizing other people photos but they are not able to produce a good n decent ones...
    2. Carrying hi end equipments but only using "P"
    3. Teaching others about photography but does not have a good photo at all..
    or
    4. a humble man, but very experience n knowledgeable...

    Well, good read for a sleepless night.
    Anyway, the only people I regard as PROFESSIONALS are people who make a living out of their craft. I don't understand when people try to associate profession with gear. Its like calling the bloke with a ferrari a professional driver. No man. That bloke is king. The uncle driving the taxi is the pro.

    Haha. Anyway, after I read the part aout the SPH guy, I can't help but wonder why some have to be like that. I've shot for a few events where the press was involved and so far, I've only encountered one bloke who was totally rude.

    Anyway, stress again. Not the equipment that makes a person a pro. I've got a friend who takes fantastic pictures for publications and he's not using any fancy lenses...

    Oh, and if I get into any of your ways at an event, ask nicely and I'll move. Be rude and I can't guarantee what I'll do... Haha

    i think its the same every where, its the mentality of holding something better than others makes 1 feel a class higher and hence cocky.

    eg uni better than dip better than o level ,
    young is better than old
    new is better than old

    i also kena once, this photographer told me : " I am the couple's official photograher , so dun block my view at all times " in a harsh tone with searing looks that suggest that i am trying to take away his job. but all this while i tool photos that is at no way blocking him ley.

    i think a real pro,
    is one always learning from all source n willing to accept others.

    but then i guess its just a wishful thots of mine.
