I can count on one hand the times I've "turned a profit" in 9 yrs here. What w/Shipping and PayPal fees...
even if I scored a great deal, eating those fees will usually put an end to that. I teach BIF and often outfit students,
as well as buy used gear for a fair sized network of local photographers. My stellar feedback and finger on the pulse
of the B&S here, instills confidence to try used and save some money. I'll usually get a beer or two for my efforts, but
the satisfaction of finding a camera or lens for someone...makes me feel kinda like a digital Johnny Appleseed. I also
am one to "buy n' try" gear for myself rather than rely on reviews etc., forming my own opinion for how/what I shoot.
When I used to spec. shoot, I'd buy a couple of bodies/lenses for a barrel racing series (18 weeks +/-) and a few rough
stock gigs and turn it when the season ended. Rinse/repeat the following year. I'm proud to be the only guy in the top 5
in feedback AND posts, here. I've earned my reputation...maybe that's why Fred still keeps me around?!
