Last trip I decided to let the "Photo Pass Photographers" do all the photography so I left my camera behind on purpose. I just figured I'd buy the CD for $120.00 or whatever. But when I went to the web site I was shocked at how unprofessional the photos actually were. The quality of course was great but the person behind the camera(!)?
Do they actually train these guys? (and gals?) Are they actually photographers? (something tells me their not - the photos). Do they just pull someone off BTMRR and hand them a camera? (Nice cameras by the way). In their attempt to "center" us in the photo they cut off our feet and 1/2 of our bodies! (typical mistake of amatures). It seems like a waste of very expensive equipment.
In their attempt (my best guess) at getting in the Castle, Statue, Train Station etc., they got 30% sky at the top of the photo and again - cut off our legs and feet. What on earth could be the purpose of all that sky?
I couldn't be more disappointed. I went ahead and bought a couple of the photos anyway but that will be the last time I leave my camera behind. My 8 year old takes better pictures.
Oh yeah BTW, a note to fellow guests: When you see a DL photographer doing a family in front of the castle it is only proper courtesy to stand to the side until he is finished and not get in the way. He will take your photo for you (even with your own camera) if you simply wait in his short line. It is really not necessary to get into someone else's photo in order to secure your own. A little common decency goes a long way in these situations.
And when the photographer asks you politely to kindly step aside so he can take a good photo of a nice family please don't get all huffy and give him nasty looks and a bad attitute. Like I said he will be happy to take your picture also if you stand (or sit on your electric stroller thing) in his line. Most of the times the lines for photos are not that long and they do move fast and then people with nasty, mean looks will not be in your photos either. Thanks.
