    no, what I mean is high turn over as per camera value (cheap cheap PnS camera),

    can't image how would someone here want to shoot for FREE and using awesome pro grade cameras

    Those who expect free photography are the most demanding "clients".

    Therefore only the best in cameras and glasses can satisfy their needs.

    Money can't buy what they don't pay.

    Yes, indeed.
    now make sense that why would ones want to shoot for FREE, and ones want to look for FREE services only, cos they are the BEST.

    My idol in photography is God Himself. He made the best photographic system that has feelings, emotion & intellect attached to it. Moreover, He created beautiful things, sceneries for me to experience, enjoy & shoot.

    ha ha.. but I wouldn't be putting myself at ease.. my cams cost me quite an amount.. there was this case when I showed my client my portfolio. He told me he liked the portfolio. then quoted my customer for $1K for a shoot. He said I can only pay $800.. somemore my photos not that nice... not like the 1K standard... That time, I was so pissed off that I said, For $798 I give you a copy of my portfolio, I take one passport photo, PS the photo with your face as seen on the portfolio. You can keep it and for $2 more you can buy 2 Paus and get some coffee. He kept quiet and I never seen him again
