    Question Do you "advertise" your equipment on yourselves?

    I've seen some photographers who like to sew on brand patches onto their bags or vests. Some even include the specific model of their cameras, or even brand stickers onto their flashguns, camera bodies, etc. (Scared people don't know?)

    Then there are those who gaffer-up every single hint of a brand on their cameras and accessories.

    Any of us here do such things?

    They are paid by the manufacturers as walking billboards?

    If Nikon pays you S$20,000 per year to wear Nikon stickers on your camera bag, would you bend your principles and refuse to be a human ad?

    tt is unlikely 2 happen 2 most of us. in most cases, we pay them (buy their product) & advertise 4 them. *look at those neckstrap*

    FYI, i dun use neckstrap. if i did mine will read "non" instead of "Canon"! hahaa...

    If the price is right, I would even tattoo "Konica-Minolta" on my forehead.

    But some of these walking billboards I've seen happened to be shooting small-time events. What's the likelihood of that kind of sponsorship? Anyway, do companies in S'pore actually do that?

    I feel like taping up my camera because I notice a lot of people like to judge other people based on the brand of camera they use.

    For even quicker reply use sky writing. All we have to do is look out of the windows. And don't you swear.
