So basically this guy is an uncle bob, admits he would be scared to death to be responsible for delivering images of a client's one day non-repeatable event and openly claims he's only done one or two weddings as primary and the rest as uncle bob, then has the balls to criticize the pro's that do this every weekend and ARE responsible for delivering images they often times have one change to get, while he's busy hanging around getting emotion shots while under no pressure to perform and with no business or professional reputation on the line?
I could get amazing, emotionally connected, abstract and artsy wedding pictures too if I didn't have the pressure to perform and get the standard shots that clients always want, even if "just to have" in addition to the more artsy coverage.
Most of the stuff he mentions is common sense, and I can see what he's talking about if his experience has only been with the unprofessional "professionals" that tend to be prevalent in the industry and the run and gun paparazzi style that I've heard is common in Asian weddings.
My main point, is that this guy has no business giving such criticism of an industry he has no pressure to perform in, especially when he freely admits to being scared to death to do what he criticizes.
