Erik, Apologies for not being clear.

I see these workshop reports (it is pretty much any such and from everywhere) with an overwhelming number of images of the organizers/participants.  What the heck does it portray?

I have been told by many that Bjorn seems to be worshipped as a God by a few who have seen such report/images, for example.

You know very well that he is a simple human with every human fallibility that exists.  "God of thunder" he is not and it is an insult to Bjorn as well as the thunder God.  What sort of wrong impressions the web creates- this is what I am trying to point out.

As for support of the site- I will do it directly whenever I can.  Leave any merchandise out of it. :)

You where quite clear to me, no issue with it :)

I completely agree that Bjørn is just a human or I would not be part of this.
I try to avoid shooting people and exposing them online - but sometimes it's just obvious, to me, to share the fun we have together :)

We can only offer the site - share content that we find could be interesting to other photographer - content is also for you all to supply!!! Enjoy the site

It's even possible to shoot Northern lights in IR !!

Someone has to do in UV and I would love to do a video capture in UV.  :)

It portrays that we're a band of brothers having fun together, in other words everything this little community stands for.

Btw, do you mean images like this ;)

Intrepid,
I think you may of misread my post I made no mention of Bjørn being a God?
I also did not intend to offend.
You feel the photograph has no merit which I understand. The title is just a flippant remark .....we were at a pagen festival storm clouds were forming, and Bjørn was holding a cross.

Cheers

Besides, he (=me) is an atheist and thinks everyone should be entitled to their own opinions on life in all its various incarnations.

OMG! (Put that as an extra exclamation with nothing to do with any religion)

 :)

Anthony, now it makes sense.  It would have made sense to the people who were there as well. Unfortunately, that photo and the title made no sense to me at all. 

Vivek.

Vivek,
I happen to have empathy with your point, but not your evidence  :)

Empathy, I also do not want a hat or t-shirt and have reservations about some aspects of photography workshops.
You used my post as evidence to prove workshops are futile, but I was misquoted.

Also what did I "prove"?

You gave me the impression that you thought workshops were futile "not interested in shooting pictures of each other in a group to pretend that is photography" sorry if this is incorrect. You used my post to highlight the fact this happens .....to prove your point.

But sorry I should bow out of this conversation now, I do not seem to be able to express my thoughts clearly.

Cheers

Selective reading and incomplete comprehension is worse than not being able to read or understand at all.  :)
