ok i see it now:

So I got a message in my inbox today from a person that saw a blog about my page let me just say I know how to upload my pictures onto this computer I didn’t have my memory card reader so therefore I couldnt upload my pictures on to the computer to put them up on Facebook and if somebody wants certain pictures done then I will do it for them I’m not going to say no just because it looks cliche so why don’t you take your blog somewhere else thanks and the free photoshoot its for advertising its how you get a fan base. So if anyone wants pictures done in light of this mans ignorance they will be free all month happy September

allow me to break it all apart:

let me just say I know how to upload my pictures

ahem…it’s download

if somebody wants certain pictures done then I will do it for them I’m not going to say no just because it looks cliche

I wouldn’t say don’t do it b/c it looks cliche, I would say don’t do it b/c you don’t know what you are doing.

the free photoshoot its for advertising its how you get a fan base

advertise |ˈadvərˌtīz|
verb [ trans. ]
describe or draw attention to (a product, service, or event) in a public medium in order to promote sales or attendance.

Giving away a photoshoot doesn’t promote sales, it just attracts freeloaders. Professionals rarely, if ever, give up their time for free unless there is something in it for them.

You get a fan base based on the idea that you do good work that people like and respect and want to see more of. She produces shit work that I wish I could un-see.

So if anyone wants pictures done in light of this mans ignorance they will be free all month happy September
