organise a pro for your wedding photography needs .......
along comes clowns like this:
OK .. I have to admit too much importance is placed on the importance of wedding photography, and for my wedding, I'd be happy with a series of snaps taken from the perspective of the (mature)guests.
But others opinions also are valid ... but those images can only be described as retarded.
So much so that I'm loathe to believe that the story is real, and could be some sample images from a very young child that had access to a camera at those particular moments.
My kids take better pictures than these and in general they're both not very interested in photography all that much.
They like it, but as most regular folks do.. something to take snaps with, and of ... that's it.
This Westgate Photography couple of clowns should be imprisoned on the basis of conspiring to defraud and misrepresentation of competence.
With ability like that, you'd never call your business such-and-such PHOTOGRAPHY!!
Only savings grace of the event was that the perp(one Ian Mcloskey):
Mr McCloskey admitted the pictures of Tom and Anneka's wedding were "pretty awful".
He said: "They were the first couple we had a complaint from. If I could have paid all the money back I would've.
Well at least they have an idea of their limitations.
This Westgate Photography business is bust and the two operators have no plans to enter into photography again..
From the article, both the ex photographers are on the dole.
My take on all of this is:
Joe Average and his missus see photography as a get rich quick scheme. Yeah I can get a cheapie camera and lens combo for a few hundred bucks, and pay it off after only one job!
(surely a low end twin kit combo can be had to less than ₤750) .. any other money collected from this point on is the icing on the cake).
No idea, no ability, no understanding and finally no product to show for it ....
