Re: Photographers hate video: the truth revealed .....

Jeff, you and I are cut from the same cloth. I'm nice until I'm not nice anymore and yes, I have threatened photographers on 2 occassions. They can try to tell me all they want about this and that but since I WAS a still photographer before 90% of them were born and they are doing the same work today as I did in the early 70s (only difference is the gear and not using 220 film-heh, most don't even know what that is) the job is the same and frankly it is a lot easier now than back in my day.
Like the mayor of Chicago (the Hon. Richard J. Daley) said durning the democratic national convention here in Chicago in 1968.
If you can't join 'em, BEAT 'em. (he didn't really say that but it was attributed to him) You get my point.
Like I said I'm nice until I'm not nice anymore.
What do I know? I'm just a video-O-grafer.

Adding to the colourful dimension of this subject...

The same bleat about photogs... Live with them as they are part of the day the bride and groom have chosen.

But specifically, as to the re-occuring Taky self promotion videos on the same theme (and as I have said previously in relation to his offerings) get off your tripod and your "back of the hall" long-shot locations - you choose the worst positions and techniques so it is not surprising you get the same results - not impressed.

Stop whinging and acquire a more professional attitiude to evaluating the location and the job you are being paid to do especially relating to the "unforeseen"; and by this, the lack of professional awareness of some in what is a competitive market.

Perhaps you should be more selective in the work you undertake?

Women don't hit harder, they just hit lower!

Re: Photographers hate video: the truth revealed .....

Im not going to pass judgement on anyones work (unless there shooting for me) there are different rules & customs from church to church faith to faith. Yes get in threre if you can. I dont have too many problems with photographers I just know that there are a lot of new ones now that the world has gone digital everyone thinks there a photographer and they simply dont know the rules. I dont know about your neck of the woods but where I am at we always have worn tuxes or nice suits there are certain parts of the church that is simply taboo and IF you go there you dont stay there. Now these kids are coming out to jobs wearing whatever jeans & a untucked shirt, never talking to the Pastor, Rabbi, Priest and walk around like they own the place.
