    Gavin, going on about wanting more megapixels and better image quality lately. Brother, you need to shoot film if you really want to make your landscapes go boom. Most 35mm lenses are hitting their limits at current sensor resolutions, and they’ll only look worse as megapixel counts rise from here.

    You can pick up a complete used medium or large-format system for less than a grand and they completely destroy the big-dollar DSLR setups in terms of image quality.

    • Gavin Seim

      Phil, you’re right. I do plan to start playing with some large format. Though I might disagree on the lenses. I think the current dslr’s have a long way to go before they catch up with the resolution of our lenses.

    This is my first time listening to the show and, for the most part, I enjoyed. I do believe, however, that making comments such as “all the bridesmaids are ugly, they stink” is disrespectful of your clients. It also seems contradictory to one of the themes of your shows which is how photographers can get more business, i.e. if I were a potential client and heard you refer to me that way I’d probably go elsewhere. Look, I’m not telling you what to think or say; but if you say you are a professional and want to present yourself as a professional there are certain comments that you should keep in private. No one wants to be insulted (even if they deserve it!). Yes, I know, some might say I’m being overly sensitive; but I imagine that when you solicit clients you don’t use such language. Just my two cents.

    • Gavin Seim

      Hey Carl, thanks for your input and for listening. This show is really not meant to be listened to by clients (though theoretically it’s possible) we’re discussing inside information geared towards pros and aspiring pros. No disrespect however. Bear in mind the context. We were talking about potential situations that could arise and how to handle them. I was joking about how bad it was to bring up the point of dealing with a problematic session. We were not referring to any of our clients and I don’t think any of us have had such situation. I think you’ll find that when dealing with real problems we’ve have encounter clients we’re more serious.

      Thanks for listening… Gav

    In the past month I’ve suddenly discovered podcasts (or decided or actually seek and listen to some) and have been on a bit of a binge of listening to as many as I can find and I though give you a big thumbs up, I’ve been really enjoying yours. There’s always a lot of great content, very relevant, and interesting. You bring in a good variety of topics and I appreciate all the talk on marketing, networking and everything about professional photography beyond the photography itself.


    • Gavin Seim

      Thanks Mike, glad you’re enjoying it. Don’t forget to join us Mar 24 for the Live show… Gav
