    You really need a passion for it as there are people who do it free.

    Another reason why the good photographers all leave Singapore... coz the final real source of income (wedding photography) is shrinking.

    Good photographers need to earn too ya know, to feed their wives and babies.

    You know what the sad thing is?

    Many photographers don't think they deserve to be paid that much.

    Just look at the number happy to offer their services for small amounts.

    I guess it is the thinking where even if one gets paid $500 is better than getting $0 for a whole day shoot.

    Also, not forgetting it is so competitive that everyone is under-cutting everyone else.

    The ones really raking in the $$$ already have an established customer base.

    i think he is just bringing up another problem, the fact that some wedding photographers have limited work pride and limited skills, just out to make a quick buck.

    follow this simple rule - try to get it right the first time in your shot (and that means getting the right equipment too) and you will have alot less work in pp. IMO, pp should be only 20-30%. if you are PP more than 3/10 photos, maybe it is time to ask yourself why and go back to fundamentals.
