Alan, the thing is I really don't. Better to feign ignorance and ask for forgiveness than permission. For stuff that means a lot to me, I do use the 6d, but for things like the blue kitchen I shared a couple pages ago, the Fuji really does fit the task, I got a call to measure something, went to the job, had camera on me and it was in condition to photograph. Wouldn't have any pics if I didn't have the Fuji, so the larger excuse was really becoming not having a camera on me when an unexpected opportunity came up. I am happy with those shots vs nothing, and for things I really want, I try to make an excuse to happen to be on the job with 6d on the right day, but I can build a larger portfolio faster by just having the Fuji on me constantly. I have already added 4 jobs I wouldn't have deemed "worth" making an effort to get out at with 6D, but in retrospect, they are pretty cool work, and properly portray what we do. When I redo our website, I want to have a large gallery of all "Magazine" quality jobs, as opposed to the usual 4-5, to hammer home the point that "we do high design work all the time, be 100% confident we can handle your project, this is all we do"
Someone skilled can pick apart my interior shots, and rightfully so as they are hand held and no light. However to most people I would deal with, they are better than they need to be, and what is really important is that it is quality looking (Even if photographically not perfect) shots of OUR actual work. So my personal nitpicks are to always make sure I expect more than they will. Today most companies use blatant stock photos and real clients are not buying them as demonstration of the ability of the company as they scream stock and something they didn't do. I work with a lot of high end finish trades, and I am surprised I am really the only one who has bothered to learn a little about photography to document our jobs. The reality is that we don't "need' them, and that is most of those guys' attitude, and my brother (Partner) thinks I am just wasting half his money writing off personal hobby stuff (well, sometimes hahaha), but there may come a day when he is damn happy that I have that built up portfolio. It may be the final push to get a new 6 figure a year builder, it may help sell big retail job when we really need it, and it has already done a little of those and bolstered client confidence when I have pulled old shots to help them with ideas for their job. So that sums up my professional photography needs, it is really almost like a documentary style photography approach, for a subject traditionally shot by turning the subject into a studio environment. Compromise is certainly a part of that.
