    I still think that having money that you have to pay tax on is not a bad position to be in. I think you might be focusing on what you have to pay out a little bit too much, and forgetting the bit...

    I think the point is that the most of the people posting 100+ photos, aren't photographers, never mind good photographers. Often they don't appear to be reviewing what they're posting before they...

    People have very different definitions of "good" :D I'm with Benny on this one (and the majority I've seen are in the third category).

    I'm also not going to mention the guy on MDJN who posted...

    After advising several times on this post that EVERYONE should get one, funnily enough, I do. :)

    And yes, I'm aware of the rules, and I'm not claiming for personal mileage. My point is that the...

    Sadly, there's not much that can be done retrospectively, so I'd definitely recommend seeing an account asap. When your income hits higher rate, you have to plan ahead to minimise tax. It's a nice...

    Agreed :) Certain demographics are being tempted to allow Uncle Brian to do the photos to save a few quid. Definitely not where you want to target your services though...

    I generally expect to see at least a couple of guests at every wedding who are now waving around at least a mid-level DSLR with a reasonable lens or two attached to it. I mean, even DJ's are at it!!...

    I've still got a pair of MK1 422a's that are going strong after 8 years and I very rarely see the limit lights on them :D

    I've spent the weekend watching the local requests for last minute DJs and, in fairness, I can say that every request I've seen will have had a DJ allocated by an agent and it's been the DJ who has...

    The 6000 won't run from USB power alone and just switches off when the power is taken away (my old VMS was like yours and would generally run OK from USB power). The MC6000 didn't "lose" the...

    I can't think of anything less appropriate to play at a wedding, other than a certain track by The Beautiful South (Don't marry her....).

    I like music has a "Radio edit" and a "Clean amended version" (their words not mine!)

    Talking of music that would usually be considered inappropriate for a wedding, how about Dutch Trance party...

    Played it (the clean/censored version) at the last two weddings. :D Not because it was requested, just because I thought it'd go down well with the crowd (and it did).
