re: nonsense spouted here from people who have never met Artie Morris, never taken a workshop from him and seen first hand how he works, don't follow his blog or exhaustive postings/comments on BirdPhotographers.net...
I think I'm glad I come here for rumor and not fact or I'd think some of these comments had basis in reality.
wtlloyd - I have no idea why having met the guy helps me judge his photography but for what its worth I do occasionally check out his blog - does this qualify me to pass judgement on his pictures!?
I feel I should explain that I for one was not having a go at his method or personality, purely his output and only then in the context of him being a perfectly competent shooter rather than a "great nature photographer" or "class act" or "Mr BIF...even Sir BIF". I also think the comments regarding his blog site being a little messy and loaded with sales links are fair...but I suppose I need to have gone out to dinner with him, and bought a few books and a bunch of 7DII raw files from him to go as far as pass judgement on his blog?
We all have opinions and a right to share them in a nice manner preferably.
I can not blame people for their comments on the commercial nature of his site. It needs to pay for itself and he needs to make a living.
I must admit at first I found his blog a bit difficult to follow but once you do you can become acclimated to his style.
