    *some* teachers get paid to teach. The teachers (instructors) at my
    gliding club all do it for free, as is the case at almost every club
    in the UK - I only know of one where the CFI is an employee of the
    club. This is also the case at sailing clubs in the UK, and photo
    clubs, and probably just about every other kind of leisure / hobby
    club.

    There are other forms of payment other than cash. My payment is seeing
    a students work on display at a gallery. Or to view a portfolio that
    will surely win the student a job. My payment is in the success of the
    student. We all have people that we remember that taught or inspired
    us, you can be that person for someone.

    I am interested in hearing about your experience in Gliding and so would a
    lot of the posters in these Newsgroups.
    You can find me mostly in the flight sim Newsgroup.

    I agree with Bob. I have only been in this Newsgroup for a very short time
    and I have seen some very professional and experienced posters here.

    I am also very pleased to see a lot of patience in trying to have a very
    good discussion of the Definition of Art.

    In my experience of Photography, I have on occasion seen someone who is very
    angry at the Craft. Whether it be for some ego problem, or lack of fame for
    something they have done. But because of there anger, they don't want to
    see any Newbies or someone trying to come into this field. I think its "If
    I couldn't be a famous Photographer, why should you". LOL

    Yes. Started last April, got Bronze in June, need 'just' my Silver
    distance! But I have no interest whatsoever in power flying - just as
    well for my pocket!
    It's completely OT for here, am quite happy for you to email me. Not
    sure the above newsgroups would be though - surely they are for power
    flight? There is a separate one for gliding, rec.aviation.soaring, so
    if you want to know more hang out there. Or find your nearest club
    and go take a trial flight.

    If that's the case why are you wasting both your time, and our time in here?

  10. also, when the student becomes the Master, then you have been a teacher,
    this is how it is done in Europe for violin studies...

    And if someday you do apply for a teaching job, that newbie, by then possibly
    a professional photographer, may be willing to write you a letter of
    recommendation, citing your encyclopedic knowledge of the field and your skill
    and patience as a mentor. What goes around comes around.

    Because you've been so obnoxious here that even if it was full of the
    most wonderful photos my money would stay in my pocket. However,
    based on the examples you've posted images to, it would be another
    tedious book of not much better than average images. Life is too
    short to waste time on them, as you are always reminding us.

    Who knew you wrote one? You haven't exactly gone out of your way to tell us
    much about yourself. We don't even know your real name.

    But in my case I suspect the answer might be "because it's mainly about film
    photography, and I don't do that anymore."

    I don't know that it's an ego thing, or maybe they really lack the
    self-esteem to feel that they truly have something of value to offer.

    I expect it still has some of your images in it. And it's still
    *your* book, written by someone who claims to be charming in the flesh
    but who displays not a smidgeon of it here.
