Re: [Austin-People-Portrait-Photog­raphy-Group] Wedding Photographer Needed: - Actually, all manner of surgeons and doctors provide services for free.

Re: [Austin-People-Portrait-Photog­raphy-Group] Wedding Photographer Needed: - Speaking from 20+ years experience as a "Working Professional Photographer", just my 2 cents & IMHO, if as a Photographer and if you are one that places no value on their "photographic services" and will photograph a Wedding, Event or Band etc. f Michael "Archangel" C.
