Ok, lets break all the myths of a pro photographer

a pro photographer is not able to get pay for shooting XMM
a pro photographer does not ensure high pay!!!
why would a XMM model want to pay pro photog?

do you know tons of GWC offer free costume, free makeup, free chauffeur, free studio, free images, free DI just to shoot XMM models for free, what can a pro photog offer a better deal then these people to make a XMM model to PAY him to shoot?


there are tons of job can get better pay than to be a pro photog.


believe it or not, is up to you, you can always quit your day time, be a full time photographer for at least one year, so you can have first hand experience.

talk is cheap, just do it.

Never mind you'll get paid or not.

Best is to think that when she smiles at the camera she is smiling at the man behind the camera.

You'll sleep well this way even in hunger. :bsmilie:

I wanna be a pro so that I can justify buying all the Pro gears. The bigger my kamera, the Pro-er I am!

Sifu Sion has already give a very good advice, the XMM will be your inspiration and motivation. :)

lol...i never will wanan be a pro photographer.

this business model is based on 1 person, cannot expand big big. i think starting a xmm churning lab for gwc to shoot more productive, can send xmm to korea too so all xmm will be super chio. not like r** **w.

alternative, invent a camera with mega pixel of our eyes, look like our eyes, focus like our eyes. and do eye surgey =)
