I Despair #1
... a "photographer" opening a new studio and already selling product posts this on a social forum for advice >>
"Can anyone please help. When I'm choosing wall art and the ratio is 1:1 yes, I understand It's a square canvas and the others are rectangular but 3:2, 4:3, 3:1...do I save my images as this somehow or will any image fit? I'm new, just getting my samples together. Moving into a studio today and faking it until I make it!"
I mean COME ON - learn your trade and your products BEFORE you start selling them. Like they say owning a camera does not a photographer make!

I Despair #2
... I posted the above story at "another networking site" where my paid subscription expires in just 10 weeks. Within minutes is was "moderated" and deleted. So much for PROFESSIONAL networking sites. I wonder what I shall do about renewing ??? Hmmm answers on a postcard ...

There are cowboys in every trade unfortunately.

Nice to hear from you again though, Martyn. Even if it is just so you can have a moan

And there's me thinking the thread was Welsh for a topless shot. :-)

quoting post from  martyn:

I dunno ... I fooled people for years, some people still think i am a photographer today! probably because I still own a camera, Though for the life of me I cant remember where it is ...
