    Well, land sharks, the new Canon 20D was a big hit in Maui last week and made
    quite a splash.

    And speaking of tasty waves, here's a few you might wanna try hangin 10 on:

    And if you decide to drive around the West Maui Mountains you better close that
    sunroof cause you might get conked with a falling rock. Note where they've
    landed in this pic.

    And be sure to watch out for hitchhikers.

    And take it easy around those curves or you may end up in the Pacific Ocean.

    Oh yeah, you'll see lots of birdies on Maui, even if you don't play golf.

    And of course, chicks dig modeling for the 20D!

    I'll have more later, including some awesome panos.
    Stay tuned!

    Well you probably aren't advanced enough to notice it, but I took all of those
    pics barefoot, while standing on one leg and whistling the theme from Hawaii

    I am far enough advanced to notice it, after at least 6 years
    expericance as a professional photographer. I could tell you how to
    make your images look better, and its mostly composition thats the

    The trick is to whistle Don Ho tunes for surf shots. The Hawaii Five-O
    theme is more appropriate for photos around civilization.

    (Beach Boys songs are also acceptable, although they'll give the pics a
    slight California flavor...)

    Gee, I thought all professional photographers knew that their
    profession is 90% ego, puffery, balls, manic energy and other ways of
    just being a salesman. Things like talent, skill, pure luck (for
    wildlife, photojournalism and other dynamic areas) so forth are
    certainly useful, but hardly necessary for success in this realm.

    Does it matter if he did, you dont post on an internet newsgroup and
    expect no comments.

    Guess that's true if a "professional" like you is hanging around.

    But I doubt if the post was made to attract denegrating comments with NO
    useful specfics nor suggestions.

    I think he proved he qualifies on at least the first two counts.
    Of course, I got all of them.

    Don Ho and I share the same birthdate (with Ben Hogan, as well). However, I
    think The Ventures might be better for the surf shots.

    Ah that explains it, I have been whistling Beach Boys and Dick Dale tunes,
    but I live in CA, so that's ok...

  16. Is that an adaptation of the Ian Anderson school of flute playing?

    (Anderson was the singer/flautist of Jethro Tull).

    Not true! The Beach Boys WILL affect composition, stick with Don Ho.

    The only thing required to be a professional at anything is to make a
    living at it (as far as Canadian tax laws go, one is a "professional" at
    something once one makes 51% or more of one's income at that task).

    The ASSUMPTION is that a certain level of skill or expertise is required
    to maintain a living income at a certain job, but it certainly doesn't
    guarantee one is any better at doing anything except selling oneself.
