Following this year’s VII Seminar in Pasadena, the members of VII met for two days to consider over 100 submissions for membership. Gary Knight, Chairman of VII, says, “We were honored to receive a record number of outstanding submissions for membership.”

Andrew Brown: We all helped to speed the demise of professional photographers | Technology | The Guardian:
A talented, hardworking and lucky amateur can produce wonderful pictures on the best days. But that will be one picture in a hundred. A professional can produce something that is nearly as good as their best 50 times in a hundred. That’s why they are worth employing.
