Simon Posted December 15, 2018 Share Posted December 15, 2018 When I first started in photography, not that long ago, I soon realised the limitations of my very cheap lenses and entry level camera, so little by little I invested in better kit. I still want to move up a level but what I've got can produce some pretty good quality pictures now for the shots that need it, and I'm investing only when the profits justify it. Anyhow, I was standing on a windswept cornish coast a few weeks ago photographing the portrait in the sand that was being done to commemorate WW1 casualties on Armistice day, when up comes and stands next to me a very well known Getty photographer who'd driven around 200 miles for the shoot. Needless to say he sold more pictures than me, in fact one of his made the front page of the Telegraph. I emailed him, congratulating him on his sale and saying I knew I was doomed from the moment I saw him. He replied back, "we're all doomed" the picture that made the front page was done on his Iphone. 1 4 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
