    ... not this
    Even so, this is a pretty tame forum with some pretty nice people who share common interests... thankfully. These kind of htings happen periodically, as you well know, and then they go away - either the offensive member goes, or the issue dies down and goes.

    I don't think it makes the matter right, just because others do it as well. I don't want to get into it but the whole interns as free labor model is broke, the continuation of it across so many other job sectors is disgusting. It's not what it was ideally anymore, as a learning apprenticeship. I remember his posts require interns to already have all the photographic skills already, so it's just free labor with a change of staff every 3 months.

    There are more discussions on other sites about his practices, if you search online, but I wont comment on it further here. This thread has gone every which way and I don't think it reflects apug as a community forum.

    I don't understand all the fuss in this thread. This Forum SHOULD be about a photographers PERSONAL CHOICE. It is every bit as ridiculous to criticize someone for choosing to shoot digital as it is to criticize someone who chooses to only shoot film (and besides, from the comments I've read here over time, it appears most of us here shoot both).

    Yes, me too... but he left. He and a few other characters really left an impression, eh?

    I find this site pretty tame, compared to when I first joined, but I have put a lot of threads on ignore so I really only get darkroom and presentation threads to view.

    I will say this ... Dinesh is by far the biggest pain in the ass on this site, he is a real trouble maker, he is lucky I never bump into him on the street.

    I agree with PKM this thread is pretty shameful, especially that really bigot remark about one APUGers country being in the Stone Age, really not ok...

    Also, one if our own recently moved to an all digital printing, remember that? And everyone said fond things and wished him luck, so why is Steve McCurry getting bashed for essentially the same thing?

    Furthermore I wouldn't mind interning for free for him, also many of my models are free, does that make me bad too?
