An interesting comment by the Editor in this week's AP where he mentions Pay and Display photography. This term has been current in the camera club/photographic society world for quite a few years. Rather than referring to people who pay megabucks to travel to exotic places to take amazing photographs, as the Editor suggests, the term has been used (perhaps rather unfairly) to denigrate those who pay for the services of guides to take them to well-worn landscape locations or to hides where "wildlife" shots can be set up. Recent examples have been the plethora of kingfisher shots and, even more bizarrely, photos of ospreys "plucking a trout from a loch" where anyone who knows anything about the subject can see that they are fakes by the fact that the trout is upside-down in the bird's talons (obviously a dead trout fed as bait rather than a wild shot). But it is easy to be snide about such activities. I think that they do provide novice photographers with a chance to experience situations that they might take years to achieve if they had to develop their own skills.
