Stop obsessing about gear and focus on your own art and creativity. Nurture and love the artist inside yourself.

I read this post and have to reply...

Great post, really helpful insight on starting the route to pro. Probably the best post i have seen on here. It's also a really interesting story and i wish you all the very best for the future.

Karl, You are too young IMO to judge anything, you look about 12 in your website and why are you in so many of your pics? If you are a pro, then why was your exhibition a bit lame?

He never said he was a pro? You implied he was, but he said:
"here is my first 24 months in starting my business in becoming a Wedding photographer" and the post was called "So you want to be a pro Wedding Photographer? Here is my story on how I started." So not sure where you thought he said that? Nevertheless, that didn't stop you putting the boot in...

Karl, you are a miserable twat though and you might have "Made it" in fine art photography, but you need to find and read a post titled "So you want to be less of a COMPLETE TOOL? Here's my story on how i ALMOST cracked a feckin smile!"

BTW, i don't care what you think of my post, so don't bother :P

Can we please not get into this again. If we want to resurrect an old thread, great, lets do it to learn something. If we want to resurrect an old argument, lets close this thread and move on.

Showit sites is the way to go if you are serious about doing this:

A Beta build is tough for me to get digging into why it wont work as it will probably change. But also my site is through Showit and with the photog clients that they have, I find it hard to believe that when IE9 goes gold, they will not have a solution. So I am in a waiting pattern for the time being.

Thanks for the heads up though, because I hadnt noticed that bug yet.

ShowIt is one way to do things. I built my own website based on a wordpress template and lots of plugins. Check out my wellington wedding photographer (external link) website.

Love your website, the layout and all of your photos. Wish I could make one just like that. I will have to put your website on my wish list :D I will have to find someone to do it for me.
