I had recently met a publicist for a magazine while shooting a fitness show. He asked me to participate in an upcoming model shoot. "Wow!" I think to myself - a chance to broaden my portfolio. Fast forward a few weeks to today.
The prime shooter has a studio in his house and this is the hilarious part. He sends out an email describing his setup and how it is only designed for his gear and only one shooter can work at a time. Did I mention that he practically listed his entire inventory of strobes, etc.?
Am I the only one who still believes that "it's not the guitar - it's the player"? Don't get me wrong, this guy is probably a very good photographer but honestly it might be more ego talking here. I may not be as good a photographer and perhaps luck and karma has something to do with some "great" shots (with a little PP thrown in), but at the end of the day, it's your work that speaks for you - not you.
Sorry had to vent. Not sure if I will want to participate on that day.
