    Michael youth and the spirit of rebellion are wasted on the young Some good points well made, although again some of the "best" IMHO work(ed) alone with only a model and camera for company.

    You're right, of course. I wrote that on a five year old computer.

    I couldn't think of anything witty to say so I left this blank.

    you can say that again!

    the world is more casual, and back in the "the day" people made it a point to look good.

    it seems that these days people make it a point to dress down, not up. i remember seeing photos of some holywood-types ( can't remember their names ) but they looked like they either rolled out of a grave, or they were a hobo doing the freight train hop ..

    I'm not exactly sure if this is true in other countries. The other day, my friend who lives in Switzerland criticized to me on american's fashion sense when he paid a visit. He tells me almost every other country he has visited, people always dress up. It is refreshing to know that there are still every-day people who care about their appearance and can maintain a unique fashion sense - even if it isn't entirely americans.

    Fashion photography is NOT fading here in DK. We have a GREAT magazine called DANSK (means danish) which is almost as good as a photo book! They have fashion photo series consisting of 8-12 photos reproduced on very good paper. The photo are made by the greatest danish and european photographers (and some from other parts of the world).

    Look at their site

    Michael - does the same happend to prices when you order materials online

    Morten - Nice link not all to my taste (that's the trouble with us photographers)but some very very nice ones LOL

    Here in Totnes it's very laid back which in some ways is a shame, but if someone is on the street dressed up they really stand out. This thread made me realise that when I worked in cities (especially London) suits were taken for granted, here they can make males and females look wow.

    The whole "casual Friday" thing that has metamorphisized into casual everyday is now a custom in a lot of countries.

    This phenomenon started in the Silicon Valley back when the computer industry was in it's infancy. Hewlitt Packard asked their employees to come in on Fridays wearing casual work clothes so that everyone could pitch in and help in the shipping department. Friday was the main shipping day and in order to get the orders out they needed everyone's help.

    Now it's everywhere. If you wear a suit any day of the week in the Silicon Valley you are picked up and driven to the border and sent on your way with a stern warning.
