I don't know about you but that exchange between the two lads made me laugh out loud. I would like to thank them both for that, now back to photography.
As an adult, I found the exchange laughable, but as I went on to say, this isnt the place for ego(to some extent) and the language was offensive, not to mention uncalled for. I see that SuzanneR has taken care of that, and I applaud her for her sage judgement.
What is a master but a master student? And if that's true, then there's a responsibility on you to keep getting better and to explore avenues of your profession.
Have you considered doing an Arts Festival in your area? I've received numerous gallery offers as a result of them. Local gallery owners often attend them, looking for artists who fit their galleries. If they see work leaving your booth, it is especially helpful, as they see there is a market for your work.
