I hope Lucian's getting good tax advice............... he must be raking it in!

Can everybody stop laughing - I'm trying to sleep.
I feel we've been a bit remiss in not recommending some good books for Lucian, now he's clearly on his way up the professional photography ladder - he'll be into big time commercial stuff soon.... you mark my words! Anyway, here are a few I've spotted, on Amazon, which seem to get good reviews. (Even if Lucian is a bit beyond some of these, they may be of use to others). If anyone actually has any of these books perhaps they could say. We seem to be a bit short of books like these in the EPZ book review section.
Setting Up a Successful Photography Business
Fast Track Photographer
Making a Life and a Living in Photography
The Freelance Photographer's Market Handbook 2012
Wedding Photography - A Guide to Posing

I wondered if you would see that comment, Keith.
Lucian I have a 600mm f8 sigma mirror lense, you can use this to shoot from a high building in the next county... they will never know your there...... make sure all of the glass ware on the table has been sanded with fine grade wet and dry paper to avoid those nasty highlights as the lense can give Doughnut effects...... real big doughnuts...... if there are dougnuts on the table these will be ok as long as they do not have a sugar coating as this will create millions of mini Doughnuts, I suggest that you place a flash light behind the hot air in suits and connect this to your camera with a 3 mile long cable available to special order from jessops for £199.99 plus £99.00 delivery by HGV, the only thing that can go wrong is if someone pulls the blinds on the window... so nip down before hand and remove these..... good luck and any more advice is on a " need to know basis " ie you do not need to know .
Hi Lucian, I've been travelling and only just caught up on the forum. Personally I think the client is building in the problem from day one, only paying £300 per day for two days (and they will be long days) will not attract photographers with the necessary experience to handle the multitude of lighting scenarios and fast moving situations that can get at a major conference, My experience of doing on the day on site web uploads is you have little or no time to correct in post production. If you are in any way uncertain of your ability, either equipment wise or experience wise to deliver a good standard on this I would pass on it. I have to admit that taking the job on then asking what you will need etc etc is all arse about face and could lead you into a very stressful situation. If the client has said they were unhappy with previous photographers ask them in what way, was it a simple case of not being color balanced correctly, was it bad exposure or bad composition? once you know this you have a starting point from which you can decide if YOU could improve on the previous togs output given the same situation of light etc.
Quote: I am a bit worried about using on camera flash with a long lens as the light may look very harsh if having to travel a long way.
Yeah right - with basic comments like that you'll be doing a TV Series next........................... You are blocked from now on I just cant take your humour!
"with basic comments like that you'll be doing a TV Series next" and not forgetting the 72 weekly part works where you will be able to build a long range flash gun with the pieces free with each magazine....
