    Why is this crap even in here? All it does is insult almost everyone involved with photography and lends credence to someone who's views on photography matter little. Even the stupidest, most inaccurate writings become common knowledge and gain credibilty when repeated often enough.

    I agree with Brian, Ken Rockwell is a foolish snob!
    Sad but real!

    Cheers

    This is a hoot! I read the disclaimer at the the top of the page and refused to take it too seriously.

    Eek! There's no funny bone in you. Read this thread: Humour in Photography

    On a different note, who's called themselves the 'whore'? Enquiring minds want to know! :o

    Yeah, I classed myself as a whore even though I make my living as a photographer. As a pro, I have to give the client what he wants, even if it's against my sense of taste or better judgement. Paying the bills is sometimes a lot more important than "art"...

    Some people are like Slinkies. They're really good for nothing, but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.

    Couldn't call myself a Whore. Whores get paid for what they do. Since I give it away free I would be a slut. Slut is not there I had to go to the next level, amateur

    I'd answer this, but I would rather start printing the pictures from a B&W wedding that I enjoyed shooting, for a client who has paid me in full, and whom I hope has a long and happy life.

    That's right Bob, "art for arts sake, but money for God's sake " we all have to do things in our working lives that go agains the grain to make a living, it's part of growing up.

    VERY FUNNY!

    I'm somewhere in between,as well....I give it away free, to anyone that wants it and I usually like it! Unfortunately, I'm not good at it yet, so I'm not very selective...should I be taking any special precautions?
