    May be to us it's a hobby, to them is their rice bowl.
    There is a difference. Before shooting:

    A Pro will ask, "This shot can make money or not?"

    An amateur will ask, "This shot will get slammed by Dead Poet in CS or not?"

    as far as this thread goes, my suggestion is, don't get further involved lah. just let ppl from both sides say what they want to say. nothing good can come out of it.
    Thanks bro , for your advice also. This may be intended to be a bashing thread in some individual's mind

    yeah but vid cams at that angle are not appropriate. squatting down to get that angle, and bashing their way out when done.

    Agree, that's the purpose of photography, to shoot anything that catches one's interest. I'm not afraid to admit that I used to shoot at events too, just for the fun of it and to "exercise shutter", so to speak. Its a good cure for "itchy shutter finger" syndrome especially during the wet season, as most events are held indoors.

    I do feel some photographers are selfish when they bring their precious ladder and place right in front of the crowd, blocking the rest of the people behind them.
    That I agree. I feel such event photographers are really too much. Its becoming a bit too extreme nowdays, these ladders and choping places and what not. Once I saw at a Sping in the City event at Raffles City Shopping Mall, a whole row of photogs standing on ladders just in front of the stage! If you are normal passers-by standing behind, you can't even view the entire performance! That was how bad it was. There was a wheel-chair bound chap behind them trying to view the show, of course the photogs did not notice him coz their attention was riveted on the stage, and eventually he gave up after a while and wheeled himself away. Sad isn't it?

    It is important to have respect for what we do and respect for what others do. Some may do it for passion and some may do it for a living. Some may have better lens and some may have only the standard ones.

    There may be some bad sheeps that put event photography in a bad light but there shouldn't be a need to sterotype everyone who is doing event photography.

    As for having artistic value to event photography, there are also some possibilities to it. Emotional fans hugging their idol (eg. emotional teary fans adoring Michael Jackson) and the quirky expression that stars put up at awards are some examples. It takes a good observant eye and sometimes luck to capture these expression.

    Example of quirky expression?

    The following is the url to grammy award:

    http://news.yahoo.com/photos/sm/even...0706grammy/p:1

    If we were to compare to overseas photographers who covered events such as fashion, shows, awards. They are very well respected for what they do. Some of these photographers might have even better equipments and longer lens.

    Lastly, just my thoughts. It is important to do what you enjoy doing what you do whether it is for a living or for passion but definitely not at the price of inconvenient another.

    Oh well.. right/wrong , fair/unfair, when we point a finger at others, many of them are
    pointed at ourselves. No one is perfect.. saying nasty things would not help the situation.

    Sin, in the garden of Eden, created a monster called "happiness" that literally consumes
    people. To "be happy" is to have everything and everyone act the way that I want them to act.
    To be "unhappy" is to wish that I could make everything that disagrees with me to "un-happen,"
    or cease to exist. It is to earnestly desire to have everything and everybody line up in the
    way that I want them to so I can get everything I desire.
