My view is that organisers of the past did it more for passion that money. On the contrary, the organisers of today tend to look at the bottom line when deciding how to organise.
This is also apparent from the numerous different pple who jump on the bandwagon, including newly "promoted" models turn organisers. After all, why earn less doing the actual thing, than to earn more sitting back and watching.
The only catch comes when they realise its not so easy as "sitting back and watching", and I have personally seen or heard of many disasters where inexperienced organisers try to take on too much without even having a good idea of what to do/expect/contingencies.
Now I am pissed.
If the small minority does not keep the flame lit, guard it from wind and water, spread it to lit up the horizon, it will die, and the art will die.
Is that what you are proposing?
I have nothing against the organizers making money. That is fine. Making money is everyone's right.
However, I have a major problem with how people approach shooting model these days. It is definitely not photography, definitely not creativity, and the end result is absolutely horrific.
photographers should think twice after examining the crowd size @ shoot.. how are u going to get a good composition when the model is so stressed up with so many photographers ?
