    Because so-called "photographers" with little or less experience also can demand paid shoots.

    so we have photographers who...

    ...charge peanuts, and some maybe even below cost, for wedding shoots

    ...pay newbie models to help them (the models) build their portfolio

    sounds like conspiracy of the highest order to destroy the local photography industry

    For wedding charges, leave it to the buyer to decide, after all there are no published benchmark rates.


    Pay newbie models .... u can't ask for 'free lunch' all the time, can u?


    This is a FREE economy! There is NO conspiracy ... u need not worry if u are good in your field.

    not asking for free lunch...but if i'm going to pay for lunch it better be nice to eat. the way i see it, demand is causing an oversupply, such that even average products command premium price.

    isnt the answer dam simple? The people are just paying to see assets. showing off one's assets in any way is just a turn on for man. even anyhow pose, also will attract guys to pay and see. dun tell me that u go for the photoshoot to learn portrait photography. even if yes, the fact remains that 90 % = see assets, 10% = learn photography. saints who go for pure photography are extinct mammals.

    lets just be more frank and face the fact of life.
