Because the The Sun knows what interests its readers much better then you do Tongue

Actually, the more I read about wedding photography and photographers in this forum the more back-biting and seedy it seems as a business.

Looks to me as if ade_mcfade has made a sound decision by keeping out of it. If the business isnít cleaned up wedding photographers will be regarded much as used car salesman are.

I thought you were saying you didn't find it interesting. What you mean actually is that you know the Sun's readership better than they do and because you didn't find it interesting, they didn't either then?

I don't normally see the Sun but I thought a story about a professional photographer booked to cover a couple's wedding and who actually cut their heads off in the pix, the classic novice's mistake, was a cracker. Funny but sad at the same time. Several similar stories have been on Radio 4 and Anne Robinson's show on TV (different photographers, of course), so my guess would be that people do find them interesting and readable.

No one's phone left to be hacked, so they've got to fill the space with something. Wink

I do not claim to know the Suns readership better than they do but I am as capable as anybody else to see when they had space to fill and chose banality.

Well I found it an interesting story and that's why I'm following this thread. There's 4 pages of this so I am not alone.

A professional wedding photographer who is so incompetent that he even makes the schoolboy mistake of cutting off people's heads in his pictures, whose work is so bad that the couple are suing him - if that is banal (definition: commonplace, trivial) then I fear for the entire business of wedding photography. If his standards are commonplace and not worth remarking on my best advice to a young couple getting married would be to get their nan to buy a point and shoot and let her do it.

Couldn't be worse results - and a lot cheaper.

Sexist would be to infer that she would have been better supplying the wedding cake.
