"I am smokin' a fag!"
Just got some great ideas from this photographer. No need for flash or focussing or pretty much anything. All I need is me camera phone and charge 2 grand. Tidy!
The couple on the About Us page, are they really a couple? Looks a very awkward kiss to me, he's thinking "do i have to" and she's thinking "i dont find you attractive"....
I like the way the pictures state they have been taken with a cheap Panasonic bridge camera. Just the sort of thing you expect someone who charges that amount to use.
I'm actually at a total loss for words...
You know what? Someone will pay for that....seriously.......
Unbelievable.........makes me wonder what the hell I am doing wrong.....lol!
Maybe I should go and do about 10 weddings a week with nothing but an iPhone and charge £250.....there you go....£2500 in my pocket!
I have commented on other threads about the "pro" at my daughters wedding £2000 paid by her father in law.
The "pro" didnt even have a spare SD card, I sold him my spare 4gb for £100, and come to think of it he only had a !8-105 on his D7000 and nothing else, not even a tripod.
His shots were awful to the extent the final bill was refused and I ended up making up several albums and some A3 prints.
Im only a digital starter having returned to photography following retirement perhaps its time for the true pros to start lobbying for some sought of federation membership before you can start advertiseing as a photographer
A rate advertised it not necessarily a rate paid.

True but most of the time it is, and the other times the amount paid won't be far off. The staggering thing is that they obviously think this is what there work is worth.
I am guessing sometimes a high rate makes people think you're good!

I quite like the shot of the photographer and videographer at work (in the wedding gallery), seems the wedding is one that she was passing and not actually at. You may not see them at first as they seem to be hidden in a purple blur.

It may get sold as a 'Fine Art' photo!
I am doing a wedding in 4 weeks time, should i switch it to full auto for a change and hope for the best or should i control it manually to get the very best out of an image because thats what the client is paying for?
I am not a wedding photographer, far from it, my last wedding was 3 years ago and most of the images were ok, they were not nowhere near as bad as those on that girls site. Have learned so much in all that time though, and awkward lighting conditions which phased me before do not hinder me now. But i am not a pro wedding tog, and dont pretend to be, and i am certainly not charging £2000's for it. Next months happy couple knows my work very well, its why they approached me in the first place, not because i advertise myself as some seasoned wedding pro, with a website that looks like a vistaprint one (not sure where the site came from, no data in the html or css pages).
We have all seen a tog like that at a wedding though. True story, many moons ago (i was in my teens) i was in town with my camera, walking through st peters church gardens where i saw a wedding taking place. The bride looked lovely, so i asked the photographer, and the couple, if i could take a few images. I ended up going through 4 rolls of film. Anyway, showed mum the photos, she loved them, she showed them to my aunt, who recognized the bride and showed the images to her, who then got in touch with me asking for more photos because she didnt like the ones she got from the tog who did her wedding. In fact she replaced many of his images with my own. I think the photographer went a bit OTT with filters, the soft focus, spot focus, sepia etc, where as mine were clean, sharp, bright, typical fuji superia colours.
