So are you not Sanjay Gupta from the website in your sig or are you saying you've faked your way so far that the work shown on the website was pretty mic done by others and you managed to get a write-in credit for those movies, articles, and photos?
From what's on the website, I'd think you're qualified to certainly teach some tourists and safari staff the fundamentals of photography. Maybe your time with a DSLR isn't so high, but a few fill in concepts aside, you shouldn't be worried.
When all alone without a client, photography is much easier. I can struggle with setting while shooting. Struggle with edit in post. No one watches and eventually I manage results. That is what I meant by faking.
Thanks for your encouragement.
