    I feel ashamed to admit I actually found that dickhead's interview useful so I'll shoot a roll of tri-x as soon as possible to compensate, promise. Who knows what good advice he could've given had he not suffered from head-stuck-up-far-in-his-ass syndrome.

    remember my friend with a shirt wrapped around his head from the last page?

    his self declared repetoir now includes:
    professional actor (incidentally walked across a street whilst filming for transformers was happening down the road. may or may not be seen as a tiny, tiny extra walking around and gawking at actors talking from a few hundred yards)
    professional model (see pictures on last page)
    professional photographer (bought a 'professional' camera, the ~sony cybershot~)
    professional fashion designer (claims to be in contact with several people in europe and is working on a 'secret' line of clothing)

    he's done one 'photoshoot' with his 'professional' point and click bridge, to which there is a dedicated album on his facebook with a single image. He just stated that he's got two more shoots 'booked' (friends who've volunteered on his last facebook status), and is asking what he should charge as a professional


    I give up

    This reminds me of that guy on this forum who was advertising 'his production studio'. When questioned, he bragged that he had bought twenty copies of Photoshop but did not yet have any employees, though he did have several Craigslist ads out!

    It was named something predictably lame like 'shadowcat productions'

    Allow me to say hello, Mister Campillo. Here is an open letter, from all of us here who may just appear to bitch and moan about photographers like yourself.

    I do have to say the picture mentioned on the previous page is a terribly uninspired image. I'm glad you're happy to get your new camera, but I don't think it's any stretch of the imagination that you could have used the same lens on a D40 and gotten the same result, sans printing a giant poster of the image.

    I have not looked through your gallery much, but from what I've seen, it's not bad; However, I see you're using a Hasselblad 503 CW with a $17,000 digital back and a variety of hefty zeiss glass for many of your shots. You may not "play with toys when it comes to your equipment", but in my opinion your photos do not come anywhere NEAR matching the money, especially with all of the gimmicky edits

    Your art is good, but it is an insult to people of anywhere near eqivalent talent but less money to be a snob about how much your equipment is worth. And for what? To prove a point about your stature as a photographer who does not associate himself with lesser equipment? There are many larger professional studios run on far less than what you boast.

    Now, I will not defend cueball. You probably read my post on the last page, he's blunt and just kind of jumps right to insult, but he has a point and you're doing nothing but proving it. You've made your "I am D4" photo private so more people cannot see nor comment on it; It seems multiple people decided to comment rather than just throw a "YAY! YOU GET AN AWARD!" comment on it.

    And that's just the thing. These people are already there, already thinking "what makes this so special", but they don't say anything. Not until someone else stands up and states their opinion. It is unavoidable on the internet, don't take it too hard.


    Your gallery is OK. It's full of gimmicky hipster edits and filters that probably came bundled in some software or were purchased off a stock site, but I can live with that. Some images are better than others, many of them are not exciting or involving at all, especially your nude models; they are pictures of girls taken with a nice camera, but they do not speak the word "sexy" to me so much as they say "vulgar". I'd rather be looking at the entire page full of cows you posted.

    I wouldn't complain so much if I didn't know you carried a bag of equipment that cost more than a decent car and took pictures like a hipster street photographer. Clearly this is your job, and that is great. The customers are obviously happy and keep giving you money to do your thing.

    However, your attitude is ultimately the problem. You consistently boast about your equipment by posting pictures of what even you called "toys".


    Some people are not blind to the bigger picture, Luís.

    Join in on this discussion if you really want to talk. Otherwise, this will be waiting for you on flickr.

    reposting for posterity:

    Thanks for writing of me . It's free advertising. I'm just a madman with a good photographic equipment and do not make good pictures. Sorry about that. It's my style and if you do not like do not visit my photos. I make money doing wrong my work and makes you angry. Life is like that. I do not mind your comments. I will not waste my time answering you. I will continue doing my bad photos. You keep talking. Kind regards.

    Jumping in, in his defense, English must not be this guy's first language, so some of what Dai is trying to convey may have been lost and interpreted as blank hostility.

    As much of a cock Brian was, his work was one of the things that got me into photography in the first place, and I would wager that his work could have been part of the reason that many other FPers into photography

    speaking of brianetc and professionalism, my sister's ex is a swath of prime examples

    he adds clients on his account, rather than having a page, so he has this huge name with -Photography at the end. So, what does he do with his storefront of a facebook account?



    turns out the guys he buggered off were on his friends list and it exploded on his wall. Whilst the walmart rednecks were pretty retarded on their own, His only retorts were nothing but trololo shit and terrible reddit response image, which he uses every other conversatoin




    to top things off his tumblr is one of two things: naked girls or photos from brian etc



    edit- even better, the audio player plays mixes downloaded from brian

    There's probably an 8 year old somewhere on this forum, posting.

    I remember when the forum was on garry.tv, with a green theme.

    I first registered an account when I was 12, I'm 20 now.

    Holyfuck.

    So old :(

    Still here though, and happy for this to be my home forum and only forum pretty much after so many years. Remember being on PHW at one stage and thinking Facepunch users are dicks I'll only browse screenshots and download from the models section.

    SO OLD, I'm 20 now!
