I’ve been following this feed since the beginning and it’s been horrifying and hysterical at the same time. While I find it astonishing what some people like and pay for, my observations have led me to these conclusions…among others.

These fauxtogs are not my competition, and I imagine they are not competition for most of you. The people who love this crap will never love or appreciate actual photography. They are completely overlooking the true beauty.

These clients are the type of people who also love velvet posters such as Elvis or wolves howling at the moon on a mountain.

Comparing the clients of these fauxtogs to a “real” photographer’s clients, is like comparing apples to oranges just as much as it is comparing the fauxtog to a photographer…also apples to oranges.

While cringeworthy, there is a client for every type of photographer.
