be good if you could do an update on what you do now. still dont like RAW? got a new camera? are you married? do you find it hard to get out of bed in the morning to go to work ? :) has much chanegd in the technology you used in camera bodies to warrant upgrading or is more about the lens?

Steve

Hi mate,

Wow, where do I start, business has been really good. Did I actually ever say I don't like RAW?? lol if I did it was a type-o as I ONLY shoot RAW, and everyone that works for me ONLY shoots RAW too. JPG on camera to me is a waste of time, an opportunity lost.

Even though Business is going really well now I can see a slow down coming too, i think over the next few years things will get a lot tougher for us togs before it gets better again. The secret here (IMO) is to keep one step ahead of your competition, cross the T's and dot the I's as a small thing can be the difference between getting a job and not. You just have ot be very thorough at what you do. The trick is to make people want you more than your competition. thats the secret.

In other news the DVD is selling ok, but a couple of bad decisions with advertising combined with a plummeting Aussie dollar has cost me quiet a lot of money. I got to within a few hundred dollars of breaking even, then all the advertising bills came in and were 1/3rd more than i had planned for and even worse a full page Advert in Digital SLR magazine in the UK netted me six orders, fo an advert that cost me over 5K. Still you live and learn I guess. Over the years im sure I will eventually break even.

DVD2 is well in the planning now as well. I plan on doing two indoor shoots this time. One at the Hydro Majestic in the Blue Mountains and the other at a Roman pools in Sydney. This time we will have a section about post processing your images and the little tricks one can do to really make your images punch. There will also be a third studio shoot all about shooting artistic lighting such as the Body shots that I do that everyone loves so much. Anyone thats ordered the old DVD will get an email when the new DVD is available. Dont hold your breath though, its still in the planning stages and we have a LOT of work to do before filming. The new DVD will be shot in HD and will have 5.1 Surround sound and Mic's for anyone on camera talking.

I was married for 6 and a half years, im single now. Too busy for a partner at the moment, I have met a few girls here and there but they all peak out when they find out i shoot models for a living...!

Yes I have upgraded to the new 1DS MK III cameras. Awesome gear, plenty of cool shots to be had. I have also got sponsorship for the next DVD too which will greatly help my cause. The camera body is obviously an important part as is the lens, but he most important part is YOU the photographer, I have seen some photographers with **** hot gear producing crap, and vice versa...

Well thats about it for now... any other questions feel free to ask....!

That's the exact opposite of what you said in the 1st page of this thread. What has changed now that you ONLY shoot RAW? Is it because you're mostly shooting for print and magazines (or other clients that insist on having the RAW files)?

Wow, I just read the initial post; I'm an engineer (Civil) who spends all his free time doing photography related stuff. Some of my coworkers are my Flickr friends and the joke around the office is that I shoot "porn" in my spare time. Really its only glam (no nude).

What kind of engineering do you do?
