    Hi Wayne, welcome, although looking at your profile page you’ve been a member for quite a few years.
    Tell me, when we were discussing Masters of Photography, were you reading the thread? :)

    Hey, it was interesting to read the comments. Great to get a viewers perspective. It does look easy when watching the show ;)

    Of that I have no doubt.

    Beware - on TV they can make anything look easy.
    Complete idiots can appear capable of doing difficult things, because we never see all the 'bad takes'.

    I carefully avoided any political reference - the target is too obvious and it always sends a Forum thread into territory that gets so much space already.

    That might or might not be true but I don't think SAMOP made the tasks look 'easy'. In fact, if anything, the tasks all seemed bloomin' horrendous to me. Pitch up to a studio to use lighting equipment you've never seen before and make an interesting portrait of a person you don't know and their random pet? In a limited time frame with the aid of one of your competitors? Worse than The Apprentice!

    I am a firm believer that there is no such thing as something for nothing. There is no other photography competition around that I am aware of paying 100k euro prize money for taking photographs. "Easy" is not how I would describe the experience. The easy bit is being the viewer sitting at home watching it ;)

    There are many people whose salaries suggest that is not a universal truth. :(

    But if the programme was recorded, it was also edited, so what you saw may not bear much relation to what happened.

    Is 'The Apprentice' that comedy programme that's a spoof of 'The Office'? I tried an episode once and gave up after a few minutes because all the characters were ridiculously crude and simple stereotypes that I cannot believe exist in real life (whereas some of those in 'The Office' definitely remind me of real people I've met and worked with). Or was it a horror/sci-fi series about clones and zombies?

    And seeing as he was on it, he may in fact tell you it was harder perhaps. I don’t think they made it look easy at all. Did you watch it?

    No - it's on Sky, hence only my generalised comments about TV programmes. If it ever 'trickles down' to Freeview I will try it.
    But comments in other Forum threads suggest to me that I won't be impressed.
