I don't think this is a soap opera... feels more like a public stoning.
Haha I've been reading this thread almost everyday to check up on new posts. I've really enjoyed this... learned alot at the expense of the OP. It's great that the OP actually posted this because it helps everyone really. This kind of situation applies to literally everyone. You don't have to shoot weddings, primary or secondary shooter, it's all relevant to daily shooting gigs. It's good to know that the world still contains people with better than average code of ethics!! 11 pages later.. have to say thanks!
