    once again, thanks to TeeCee for having us over at his studio! interesting discussion we had, especially about the copyright issues. i think it is important to inform the 'public' that photographic images are just as legitimate intellectual property as music or software. some people think that taking pictures are as easy as 1 2 3, just set up a tripod and click away on the camera.

    what they don't see is the amount of time spent learning the craft, not to mention the amount of investment put behind the business. so what you pay for is what you get! although i don't have my own business right now, i can see that this 'undercutting' issue is quite a problem for professionals. like TeeCee had mentioned, it is like a virus. once a client has kena a 'good' deal, it will spread and affect everyone else.

    point being, as amateurs, hobbyists, semi-pros or professional photographers...we should ALL take pride in our works and put a value to it.

    so sorry zemo and i had to leave early...eagerly awaiting the next one in nov

    Hmmmmm........if PPAS's objective is to form together to protect photographer's rights, can we form a APAS (Assistant Photographer's Association Singapore) instead? We also got to make sure photographers don't undercut our pay also. Ha ha.........doesn't make sense but the world is full of nonsense anyway.

    ya ya, i was about to suggest the formation of NPA (network for photographer's assistants) afterall, they really have such associations overseas. and companies like Mamiya and Leaf support the growth n development of professional photographers' assistants (Today's assistants, tomorrow's professionals? )

    all i know is, we really got to work really really hard to achieve where the professionals are right now. and a network is really something that can be beneficial to everybody

    anyway, PPAS has been around for many years already. i heard it used to be more vibrant and active...so let's hope they become active again!

    btw, yezrah, were you the one sitting next to me the other day? hehehe

    Oh well.........hope we can have another PA outing where we really get to know who is who in assisting the commercial photographers in Singapore. At least, I think we can find some common topics to share and have a better idea of what we are doing. Tee Cee has been very kind to share. Thanks.

    Default very good news

    hi everyone!

    i have received a very kind PM from a fellow CS-er, CTKG, who has offered a very special arrangement for our group.

    what exactly it is, i shall keep it a secret (to protect his business interest) until something more concrete is established.

    just too excited to share this piece of news with you guys
