    Default Photographer hallmark

    Let us examine the Photographer hallmark

    A letter from K Kalidas published in TODAY on 28th March, 2007 highlighted that “Honesty and integrity are the hallmark of our ministers”.

    Just a query to find out why can’t photographers adopt the same principle?

    "Honesty and integrity" = Do not PP photos and do not hide in one corner to take pictures of others?

    Just my guess

    ...

    Honesty and integrity = P&P without makeup or hair mousse? Wild stallion hair with pimples?

    We could understand the reasons for the attempts at the
    creating process:

    1. PP of photos
    2. Hiding at one corner to take pictures of others
    3. PP without makeup or hair mousse
    4. Playing around in the darkroom
    5. Being a businessman
    or even attempts at the things we did to the our brain, what then is NPNT?

    Sure is, when commercial photographers knows the language of providing an effective
    business through photography while holding a sound philosophy that get the customers
    keep coming back for more.

    A hungry and greedy man can do anything from stealing to being dishonest in order to
    get what he wants... especially for his stomach. In other words photographers got to
    learn good business practices and implement them.

    Kopitiam is supposed for discussing anything under the sun. However I am not sure if
    this is true that the mod here have the right to decide what we should or should not
    discuss....viz beliefs and the word "religion" even though our Prime Minister has called
    on the citizens to go about knowing more deeper into the teachings of all faith for the
    purpose of knowing how to live happily and in harmony with prosperity with one
    another.

    When mod stops all discussions on these topics, what they do not know is that they
    have just wanted to have peace and not flame war in exchange for important
    knowledge.

    Even our SM has now acknowledge that deeper knowledge into a subject
    is good for all of us. He was speaking on TV last night explaining the reasons for
    Singapore being no ordinary island.

    Maturity of the mind does not allow oneself to look
    silly or calling names at one another even in cyber space.

    Maybe people should stop exploiting and screwing photographers first. Then we can talk about “Honesty and integrity and fair price".
