I do what I want
I grew up with a father that shot weddings using film. He was good at it, built a huge house around a bunker of a studio. He was a photographer. He was classically trained in Europe all that junk, unfortunately the industry was much like it is now. You had to stand out to be more. My father did weddings then got divorced, and I won't. To those of you who aspire to make it as a weeding guy, good. You'll probably go far into the empty bullshit world of very boring and very average shots. You know that someone else showed you how to do, so go, copy that other wedding shooter, bring a backup guy to get those romantic moments people want to cherish when they get divorced. It's a cop out, like a weeding singer, if you get my drift. Listen you guys, photography goes further back for me then for you. My mother uses sound to produce images. I watched my fathers dreams fall apart probably because of something like anonymous bloggers who have no value. Yes, you are worthless, I'm sure you get paid so much more for the work you do, but you don't really do any right? other wise you would be working. The quality shooters sell drugs not talent to pay for gear. They're like rappers, to bad its a tough industry. Hey boss just wait, I'll be telling you what to shoot. Put you pictures where your mouth is, "Nowhere!" but you can write a mean comment, bet you'd be a good editor.
