    no one buys high speed photography though. if the object of the website is to sell your services, (i assume as a wedding photographer ??), then the high sped images are irrelevant.

    some of the links in your sig and within the sites dont work either. thats terribley frustrating.

    I'm pretty sure the wedding stuff is moot now because I think he's trying to land a NASA contract. With that in mind, I'd like to revisit and refine this miniskirt on the street corner idea.
    Ouch.

    I'm not really trying for wedding photography at the moment. I can do it and have done it. I'm really aiming more toward a different niche. I just figure there are too many Uncle Bobs out there doing it.

    what niche are you aiming for ? high speed photography ? come on. no one buys that. its not a niche market, its a non-existent market. if you improve your execution of the HS stuff you may be able to sell some via a stock website but i doubt there's much to be made from it.

    if youre objective is to take the shots as a hobby for your own pleasure then that's cool, but as a marketable, sellable product ? dont kid yourself, its a dead end.

    Lol. You can get all the high-speed images you want from Flickr. I'm after a very different niche.
