When there is a demand, there will be supplies ... so I am not going to blame the suppliers.
However, I nearly fainted when I saw this thread about a shoot ...
4 models, 24 photographers, and 2 hours or 30 minutes per model with 5 others photographer fighting for the best angles, the organizer even claimed that newbies can learn from this shoot ...
And how are any of the photographers going to get any decent shots is beyond my comprehension.
I sure cannot nder these circumstances!
Another shoot, 5 models, 25 photographers, and a measly 2 hours or 24 minutes per model with 4 other photographers jostling for position.
Another one, 4 models, 20 photographers, and 2 hours to shoot; another one, 8 models in 3 hours ... on and on and on, all I see, meat market...
Again, I don't blame the organizers, but the GWCs who are threatening seriously the standard of portraiture photography here in CS.
