from this tread,
i do not want to discuss this on the TS tread
other photographers newbie, hobbist or professionals and CS as a whole
it seems that CS has become known as a place to get photographers for peanuts (not the NKF type)
since you are new here, i would suppose that you do not know the history
I do not make photography my living, so it does not hurt me.
But it will hurt the profession, the pros and the pros to be.
it takes great passion and skill to take good photos consistantly
and make the best of every situation.
Lots of years of hard work and experience.
"times are hard" yes i agree, and it is getting harder if nobody wants to educate the photographers that they are worth more. and the clients that it is not as simple as pressing the shutter and there are other costs involved as well.
Somehow I feel that this concept of "everyone look after themselves" is bad
You cant blame me for trying to protect my own.
I mention again as above, photography is not my bread and butter,
but CS is my playground and my friends are there, i will try to shoo birds that poop in the playground where me and my friends meet.
Everyone else, what are your reactions to this issue
I know that this has come up time and time again
but it is time to do something about it
you deserve more!
