I had to laugh because it reminds me of my first wedding. A friend of the bride and I insisted on videotaping the wedding as a gift. He was also newly budded "pro" photographer.

He actually did manage to get a few minutes of us on the tape after running out of power, taking a while (during the ceremony) to find a new battery, and then spending most of the footage he did get by taping the singer (she had such a nice voice you see!).

Even better is that he later decided he was short on income and wanted to charge us for the travesty! No longer a friend after that!

I have no wedding experience, but im sure i could do better than him if i was being paid 1450 pounds...

Hell I'd make sure I'd had a 16GB Memory card in there and raw photo mode on with custom mode on, also I'd make sure I had a HD Record Mode on the camera.

And try my best at least to take a photos close to professional enough, that's why there's raw mode to allow for fixing the exposure levels.

What would be more interesting than the pics shown would be to see what was presented by him at the trade show....did he steal images? Maybe buy standard stock photos and use them?

There might be some fraud in there too!

I'm very sure he doesn't have the rights to that copyrighted music he's playing with his crummy flash animation, either.

This guy is just a plain retard and is going to drive himself into a gutter soon enough.
