    Your camera is amazing. What camera you got and what lens do you use?

    Thank you, my camera is indeed quite skilled, I've taught it all I know. It's a Nikon D7000 with a Nikkor AF-S 50/1,4 G and a Samyang 14/2,8.

    Obviously the photographer is awesome too!
    Eww, a Nikon user! How much did it cost you?

    His signature says "Amateur Photographer studying Mathematics!" so I don't think so, Felir.

    An amateur photographer can still get paid for stuff. My girlfriend has done shoots for The Guardian and some authors books.

    Oh, I know that.

    It's just that when you said "Do you do any shoots professionally?" I interpreted it as "Do you photograph for a living?", and I don't think he does that, that's why I linked his signature because people that are amateur on X don't do it for money or as a career, it's kind of like a hobby or something, imo.

    And professional/amateur =/= pro/bad, respectively, by the way, on this context atleast.

    Fairs, it was more of a "Do you do shoots for money?" question, maybe I worded it badly, maybe you were pedantic, probably a bit of both.

    I didn't read it like that at first but I didn't think of it either and it just stuck in my head what I said on my previous post, so yeah, I was kind of pedantic there. Hehe

    Huh, this started quite a discussion!

    I have, on a few occasions, been offered money for photoshoots. In the end, though, I have never actually accepted any payment. I'm not trying to sound noble or admireable, I just don't care for the money.

    It did indeed. Oh I see. That's very modest of yourself considering you're a very skilled "amateur" photographer.

    If I was half as good as you are when it comes to photography, I'd be making a fortune around here, lol. Awesome pics as always, by the way.
