    The town I live in is small. And like many other small towns, it lives and breathes sports. Well, a co-worker showed me a picture that he had just got back from the local photographer for his daughters 5th grade basketball team shots. He paid $22 to get the photos done, and get two prints done. And this was the product.

    This is why business end of photography > skills, your $5000 gear. Masses are asses and this guy truly puts the asses into good use.

    I would really feel awful charging for that. Hell I would feel awful shooting that for someone for free.
