I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.
My favourite quote from the article referenced concerns another of his customers:

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.
Ah, the mother of the bride

No, I think she was the aunt of the bride... of a local mob family, I believe.
I thought about being a wedding photogaper at one time many years ago, but more I read about it the more I'm glad that I'm not one.
I do agree with you, but instead of only being a wedding photographer; I'd not like to do any kind of professional activity.

I never cease to be amazed at human beings facility for self deception, I look foreward to Mr Bowers audition on the X Factor.
