I’m a military wife, and we’re in Alaska, which is considered an overseas tour. There are at least 30 on base “photographers”. It’s terrible. Some are okay, one or two are good, most are bad. The problem is they have no concept of the cost, the time ( for education) and the work it entails. I tried talking to one photographer about why she shouldn’t be charging when she’s using a 100 dollar point and shoot, and even found her a pretty good deal on a D3000, ( I think it was under 300 dollars with lenses) but she said  she was short on money and needed to buy props first. Now I know gear isn’t everything, but appropriate gear is still important. It just floored me. I’ll never get half assing things
