Please escuse me these next few days if I seem MIA… after about 270 hours, 5,384 frames, and 20.2 gigs of almost solid shooting for two weeks straight my brain is mush and desperately needs to rest.
Thats not to say that my two weeks weren’t spent well, I enjoyed my time with the crew but what was once an assignment for pictures of the students on their trip has now quadrupled to many others also asking for copies of images from different point of views.
I as a professional photographer cannot and will not allow any images to pass on without being tone and fixed correctly. If I didn’t then it would reflect badly on me as a photographer.
So with that said I want you to keep one thing in mind… Appreciate me as a photographer. I work hard for what I love. I went through 4 years of university and brought the best gear I could afford so that I could produce images that would reflect my 6 years of shooting experience.
I hope that one day people will realize that photography is worth something more than free. (Just like you wouldn’t ask a dentist to pass out free cavity fillings to all his friends and clients… Or even an artist to paint for you without providing some sort of compensation…)
A vent? Perhaps, but remember my brain is mush, so please forgive me.
