| p.1 #5 · SportsShooter a taboo subject in the Sports Corner…? |
I locked the previous thread because I saw the thread potentially go downhill real quick and it was my choice to lock it before it had the chance.
SportsShooter is not a taboo subject. But I do not want discussions to put FM members in a bad light. If you do not like SportsShooter, if you were turned down and are mad about it, if you do not like some of the people over there, just refrain from commenting.
SportsShooter is a great resource for working sports photographers, and is much more than the message boards. A lot of photographers here have come to FM with little to no knowledge of what the heck they were doing, and after posting images, learning from mistakes and critiques, have gotten better and better and moved from total cluelessness to working as team photographers, league photographers and wire photographers, and have made the decision to join SportsShooter with or without a sponsor.
This is a Sports Photography presentation board, not a bitch about SportsShooter board and when these non photo presentation posts come up I let them go until I see a negative trend and then they are done. I have been a member here since 2004 and the moderator of the Sports Corner for about 8 years. I have seen posts like this go bad very quickly.
More than just the people that post read these forums. SportsShooter senior members and founders, MaxPreps executives, wires, photo agencies, equipment manufacturers and many other read these posts, and I would rather them be positive and professional posts because it can be beneficial to the members here.
