    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
    I am enjoying this entirely too much!

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.

    Yeah right
    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.

    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.

    Just as hobby and entertainment, also for documenting anything I want to. Nothing else.

    What do you think of him doing that old number from Half a Sixpence, you know that one that goes

    #All lined up in a wedding group
    #'Ere we are for a photograph
    #We're all dressed up in a morning suit
    #All trying hard not to laugh
    #Since the early caveman in his fur
    #Took a trip to Gretna Green
    #There's always been a photographer
    #To record the 'appy scene.....

    #'Old it, flash, bang, wallop, what a picture
    #What a picture, what a photograph
    #Poor old soul, blimey, what a joke
    #Hat blown off in a cloud of smoke
    #Clap 'ands, stamp yer feet
    #Bangin' on the big bass drum
    #What a picture, what a picture
    #Um-tiddly-um-pum-um-pum-pum
    #Stick it in your fam'ly album

    I think he could be on a winner here...
    Alex
