Imagine a month after this meeting seeing your ideas used in that site, or photographically... hanging 3mtr x 1 mtr from the local Mall ceiling

It's only cool once. Wearing the phrase 'doormat' on your forehead never grows old to those with muddy boots. Tread carefully...


Cheers, Dave.

I just don't know. I'm a pretty trusting lad usually but....

if it sounds like turd, smells like turd and looks like turd, it usually is.
I'd be inclined to let the other guy pick it up & taste it... ;)

So, a question to you all..... a company I have photographed(fashion) for before in the past year is looking at doing a shoot(fashion) and has asked me to go in and have a meeting with the Marketing Manager, Designer, and another photographer to do some brainstorming for the next shoot. They explained that they have had 2 shoots in the last year, 1 by me and 1 by the other photographer, and like both of our work. The other photographer is quite new to photography but has all the gear and a studio. I'm in a dilemma about this. Do I go in there a share my ideas/style? Go in there and say nothing. Not go at all. Ask to have a separate meeting with the Marketing Manager and designer?

Your thoughts on this are much appreciated...

to tell the truth I would never expect anyone to ask this, it's like asking 2 architects to come to your house for a meeting at the same time to offer their services to design your house. Just not cricket!

Just re-reading your post, the way you have written it, almost sounds like the company are asking you to be their artistic/photographic director and work in conjunction with the other photog, perhaps using their facilities.

I would attend the meeting but, if possible check with the company prior, just exactly what role they had intend for you. If you are not happy with the answer given, say thanks but no thanks but I wouldn't do it in an unsavory way, just explain your situation.

Those are cool Chris. I find the dynamic range of the camera to be pretty interesting. I would have thought that the trees would be over exposed and there would be more flairs throughout the picture.

I think you might be right Mark it is almost like this. Anyway, I'm going along and we'll see what happens. I think all will be explained on the day...

Everyone have a wonderful Tuesday :-D
