>>3494277He's literally what /p/ would look and act like if this board was alive.
>>3494287I second this, the amount of gear queering on this board is astonishing.
I still cringe regarding the photoshoot he did with Lanier.
>>3494277>literally has Nikon tattoo on his body.
>>3494287>>3494289I disagree, practically nobody has a decent FF camera.And the very few people that posted here with their high-end FF / MF cameras usually did fine.
>>3494331>I disagree, practically nobody has a decent FF camera.lol what?
>>3494335/p/ is poor and mostly uses shit gear. Look at the EXIF information, it's practically all cheaper APS-C / MFT cameras with cheaper lenses.And some meme film (sometimes with decent enough film stock, but 35mm and with terrible lenses and crappy scanners).
>>3494339have you ever seen a show-me-your-gear thread ? there is always so much great gear that I get jealousthe point is: there are people with entry level gear that show off their every pic taken and that is reflected in quantity of exifs you mention but there's also lot of people with newest FF cameras and lenses
>>3494346>have you ever seen a show-me-your-gear thread ?A few times? Feel free to link any archive one where you thought there was a lot of amazing gear.> so much great gearNot usually, no. My observation is that most people don't even have the typical journalism f/2.8 CaNikonSony zoom lenses, never mind more/fancier gear.Definitely almost everyone here is using cheaper APS-C/MFT cameras with cheaper lenses.The people that do have some shiny gear like the medium format guy whose name I can't remember (which claimed to scan his film on a fuckexpensive scanner) DID publish some really nice photos.
>>3494287Lol. Fat, shrill, and petulant? ...Yeah, probably.
>>3494277I’ve met people like this irl, and it’s really quite bizarre. They have all these cameras and know so much about them, spend so much time researching and testing, and yet they just do not give a shit about the art of photography. It’s like being a car nut if you can’t drive. I will never understand it other than as some form of autism.
>>3494361> they just do not give a shit about the art of photographyNot everyone gives a shit about the various bloody retarded sales pitches artfags use to sell what are essentially often the crappiest effect photos.As long as they're shooting photos, that's just fine. If they don't, okay, they're the odd person that stands out. And some like OP are YT telemarketers. Few of these people are particularly good, regardless if it's at photography or video games. They're good at telemarketing.
>>3494361Ambush in a nutshell.
>>3494277I lost respect for this dude after he released countless videos praising Fuji for making their cameras in Japan, then immediately dropped the subject when they started producing lower and mid-tier models in China.The dude is a decent source of info on vintage lenses that don't cost a fortune, but I find it hard to sit through his rambling, barely coherent videos that are 50% him talking about how many lenses he owns and how he's so smart.
>>3494387The guy with 3 actual photo threads up right now encouraging people to shoot? From what I can tell he loves what he does. I used to think trips were the problem but now I see the bullshit really does start with jealous anons.
>>3494444You forgot your tripcode.
>>3494462You forgot your dignity.
>>3494361>It’s like being a car nut if you can’t driveAnd that is the norm, really.
The nikon thumb vs the nikon family man, which Ken is the strongest?
>>3494366Ken doesn't telemarket, in fact he hates on just about every YT channel with referral links or rented equipment. I've heard the theory that he hoards lenses then lists them on eBay after recommending them but never seen proof. In any case, out of all the major photography channels shilled on here, Ken Wheeler is the only who screeches about shills and doesn't have any referral links in his description. He's basically /p/ in a nutshell.
>>3494470There's not much dignity in posting without your tripcode in order to defend yourself anonymously. Tripfags are prone to projection like this when called out.
>>3494500Rockwell isn't completely insane, so him>>3494515>hates referral links>uses referral links>>3494516>obsessedWhy are there anons talking about ambush in every thread?
>>3494518Where has he used referral links?
>>3494520Every fucking review article.
>>3494520"This free website's biggest source of support is when you use those or these links when you get anything, regardless of the country in which you live. Thank you! Ken."For well over a decade.
>>3494521Ken Wheeler? Link to any of his reviews where he has an affiliate link because I've never seen one. Ken Rockwell has lots of affiliate links in his written reviews ofc. I think you're mixed up or we're each talking about a different Ken here.
>>3494522I was talking about Ken Wheeler, the post I was responding to was about YT telemarketers. Not Ken Rockwell who isn't on YT.
>>3494529Literally who?You're off the rails, anon. Repent by supporting his growing family.
>>3494522Did you support his family?

>>3494357LEL, but most of all he doesn't actually shoot. The one time I saw him taking photos was on a video by that fedorafag when he joined as a guest. They each took turns shooting a model and all Ken's shots were god awful. He completely blew out the backgrounds as he constantly hit the model with a huge off camera flash.

God the drama he and jason have is so retarded. I cant look away its so garbage. Now some more of jasons old models are going full me too. And hes blaming Ken. And Ken contacts models. And models get pissed at Jason. And all three parties interactions loop around in a never ending sperg machine.

i don't understand. this guy has a 10k+ camera and he's pictures are just meh-tier at best?
>>3498743No one accused Ken but a model did accuse the fedora guy. There was a thread a week ago but I can't find the archive link. Anyway, he supposedly asssulted her when she was a teen for several years
>>3498763It's all kicking off tonight. Model confirmed the FBI are investigating Lanier and he paid chicks to grope him and groped them. Sony ditched him because of the FBI case. He's fuckin toast. It's all wonderfully autistic.

>>3498664>He is like the Jason Blaha of /p/Basically this. Every image I've seen him take (legitimately) has been mediocre at best, terrible at worst (when compared to his touted pro experience). Let's not forget he ones he clearly plagiarized (which was 100% verified) and tried to pass off as his own - one from a bike mag, another from a Russian model shoot. He runs his mouth A LOT with not so much to back it up. Not even talking about skill to back it up, I'm just talking about how many claims he flat out makes without evidence about fucking everything. His career, his past, groping models, magnetism, fucking phase theory - whatever. Dude's just an endless amount of hot air.>>3494339>/p/ is poor and mostly uses shit gearI crossed the $10k mark recently with 5 "money" (>$1k) lenses and a D850 in the collection now . But I stopped posting my pics about 2-3 years ago back when I was still using a used T5i and plastic nifty 50 because /p/'s just a demoralizing punchbox. I mostly lurk and browse now. I'm sure this will be dismissed as a whine or get the equivalent of "git gud", but it's just been my experience. I see plenty of good pics here that get bashed relentlessly.There's little else out there that's made me want to stop shooting than sharing any of my pics here. Granted in the end, photos are more or less a personal journey for the 99% of people who own a camera but aren't making a living off of it. I don't take pics to make other people happy. Seeking validation and getting it is great, yeah, but looking for validation in a place like this seems like a bad idea.[EXIF data available.

>>3494518Ambush went full 2017-2018 Chosis and started samefagging with his trip off sperging out at any anon who criticises him or his photography. Like any criticism gets 5-6 (You)s within a few minutes, some with trip on and some with trip off but all with the same writing style and buttblasted tone. I don't know what happened in his life but he seems to have lost all grip with reality in the last few months. It's a shame.
>>3500559>Yeah and now Ken Wheeler is in full force trying to help Jason Lanier go to jail due to his "sexual harassment" case.Link? Not a Ken fan but I hate Lanier more. Glad he's throwing Lanier under the bus
>>3501258It's all over both their channels. The girls accusing Lanier also have their own channel, I think it's called We Stand Together or some shit.Lanier has resorted to posting footage of the models saying his "microexpressions" show he's uncomfortable around them and saying he only forced them to share a hotel room with him during shoots to save on costs. He also implied he targeted models who provide him some form of "companionship". So basically he targeted young models and used them as some kind of girlfriend experience. Whatever happened, Lanier is extremely unprofessional and had this coming. When even his explanations look this shady it's not a good look for him.
>>3501260Thanks I just started on the video on his channel. His damage control isn't very good besides some text messages and video clips. He flat out admits to sharing rooms with 18 year old models, paying for their trips around the world etc...as a "professional" that's a terrible business move, not to mention paints him in a bad light with his wife and family.The weakest move is making Wheeler sound like some kind of mastermind who set the whole thing up by grooming the alleged victims to tell stories. He said Ken stalked him for 5 years yet that didn't stop him from getting together with him to shoot and make that video. If I had any problems and felt someone stalked me, WTF would I make a collaboration with them?
Jason sounds as a reasonable likable perv, while Ken sounds as a total psychopath that spends his time on 4chan.
>>3501263Lanier realized he could do a lot better than that hatchet faced wife of his.But he should have just dumped her.
>>3501252You would have to be pretty involved to have that much info. I heard talk of a stalker, guess that's you?>>3501530Post the wife
>>3501530>But he should have just dumped her.Guess that's an option but easier said thsn done. He supposedly has I think 2 kids with his wife. My guess is he wanted to have things go both ways and it backfired. He already got called out for wanting to live the rockstar life traveling with these young models but then claim family man and peace maker when shit hit the fan. Cliche but it's true, don't shit where you eat.
>>3502095So who is the father of these kids?
>>3502098>So who is the father of these kids?Big oof. I always thought his wife was Cuban and that's why the kids were Hispanic.
>>3502103Well' he mentions in the blog with >>3502091 pic attached being married to "kara" for 17 years.Those kids are triplets and they sure aren't 17 years old.I'd be really surprised if they let someone with jason's background adopt 3 kids, but maybe.So what's going on here?
>>3498565how did he miss the shot? what the hell are you analyzing here?
>>3494277He's just your average dslr user with a little too much money. Probably shoots in auto and chimps every shot.
>>3494277He must post here, right? I mean someone as unhinged would fit right in.
>>3502589You'd think so but Ken is 100% normie. I'm sure he's aware of /p/ but his audience wouldn't get it. So he just panders to their expectations. I'd recognise his style of shitposting and awful photographs. He lives on youtube/insta and twitter. As a sociopath he's incapable of receiving criticism so /p/ would be his last port of call.
>>3502599This. Jason used to lurk here too
He did mention in a video people making comments about his "dead" wife about 6-12 months ago, around the time there was a thread up on here. I didn't read the thread so I don't know if he did see it or it was somewhere else on the internet.
>>3494277he's a neoplatonist meme on /lit/. his endgame is apotheosis. after learning sanskrit and attic greek and syncretizing the relevant philosophies and becoming bored with the enterprise, he adopted cameras as just a technical thing he can invest time into until the inevitable happens. there is no greater plan. he's just waiting to die like the rest of us.
>>3502288Who's this thot? Is that Lanier's wife?
Could someone explain what the fuck the magnet videos are? Seems that people tune in for the photography videos and he tries to shoehorn in his personal fringe theories between camera uploads.
>>3503228His magnet videos were some of his most popular in terms of views and interest. So he made more. I think to some people he's the "magnet conspiracy theory guy" more than the "Nikon/Fuji camera guy".
>>3503249To most he's just 'that psycho'. It doesn't take long for reputation to spread on youtubosphere.
>>3494277>>magnets>>knows ancient greek>what's his endgame?watch his esoteric buddhism videos
>>3503289>YouTubKek, that's what his channel should be called.
>>3503303>YouTubeOh holy Fuck I like that.
>>3503303shut up, tool.
>>3503330>you tubOf shit.
Kek. Lanier was dripping on Instasham about people attacking his wife and kids. Looks like he did get cucked then. I've dealt with ken a couple of times in real life and he comes across as just a normal friendly dude. Most of the outlandish shit he claims to have done in his life is surprisingly true.
>>3503888This. Despite the "angry" persona Ken does seem like a normie. He really doesn't shoot professionally despite owning a decent amount of gear but it's much more tolerable than Lanier who tries hard to state that he's a professional working photog. This compounded y the fact that he's had several videos of childlike tantrums when asked to leave certain places or present a license to shoot there. I get it, some cops might be dicks and tell you to fuck off but professionals would take the high ground rather than risk taking business losses, arrest etc rather than rant row row fight da power! They'd also know not to share a fucking hotel room and bed with 19 year old models. The fuck does he think he is, Terry Richardson? Shame.
>>3494444Trip back on bushy.
