    Cousin Henry might have done much better.

    The photographer's website is currently showing as out of service. If it's up for sale, cousin Henry could have a go at going legit. He couldn't possibly be worse!

    It might be funny, but, heck; I'd not like that that would happen at my wedding.

    Those photos look like made by a snapshooter. Jesus.

    This isn't news, it is happening all over the world all the time, there isn't any regulation of the industry, anyone can call themselves a "Wedding Photographer".

    The company is apparently now out of business. The article also quotes him:

    "I believe I am a great photographer, technically and creatively"

    Yeah right

    Folks, I believe we've all been way too hard on poor Gareth. The bride and groom share some of the blame. They read the name "Fresh Images" and assumed fresh ment good. I say, "Not necessairly". For example, fresh piles of doggie doo (which coincidently, strongly resemble poor Gareth's photos) are not a good thing. He might actually believe poorly done photos are "fresh" and a more earthy way of capturing the moment. Maybe he's trying to start a new trend in wedding photography. He could be on the cutting edge of "Modern Crap".

    My favourite quote from the article referenced concerns another of his customers:

    "The Durands claim Mr Bowers left early on the wedding day, saying he had a gig as a stand-up comedian."

    A man of many talents, indeed.

    I'd love to know what he showed as a portfolio to convince someone to pay almost $2000 for his services.

    Heck, I thought you were talking to actual "danger". I once had a lady threaten to have me killed if I gave the prints to the person who paid for the job. She then said, "Of course, I'll pay your regular fee plus a premium." When I told her my loyalty must remain with my original client she became enraged and demanded her husband to take me outside and deal with me. Fotunately, the other wedding party had several members of the local police department. They put an end to that nonesense. I did look over my shoulder from time-to-time for awhile though.
