Either correct my header, or REMOVE me from this list. The "Name" I gave by my actual name was for purposes of communication alone. I should be linked as "DBIphotography Toronto", not "Daniel Betts (Danny)". I would have thought my providing my name was obviously for this purpose. Why else would the "name" of the one seeking to assist be asked? Why would you not list the name of the poster as-posted??? I'll be back to check on this in a few days. Thanks for your cooperation neutral

I'm confused. If I'm looking for an assistant, your photography business name is completely irrelevant. Every person on this list is listed as a person. Do you not want to be known as a person?

That being said, you sound pissed and I don't do this for people to be pissed at me.

Not pissed, so I apologize if I came across that way. Yes, I want people to know me as "Daniel/Danny" if considering me. Which is why I listed my name *as* my name, to give my listing a more personal feel. My gripe was that I'm being linked by my name. "Danny" is a guy who takes pictures. "DBIphotography" is a business, and being the sole-proprietor if a freelance-photography business is no different from the other two I've run successfully. For people to regard me as a business and take me seriously, they must see me as a business and not a person. That was my issue. That to go to my posting one must  click on "Daniel Betts (Danny)" as opposed to "DBIphotography". It makes me look like a web-photographer as opposed to a multi-published freelance photographer with a GST (tax) number who has listed here in an attempt to get further faster. I've been around 2.5 years, and have been shooting for the past 9+ months. This crazy mindset that I need people to regard me as a business to GIVE me their business isn't such a crazy one at all. I meant no disrespect, but my heart sank when I saw that the reason I haven't gotten a single response here was very possibly because I looked like another kid with a Canon Rebel (34; semi-pro Nikon fyi).

~Danny

I'm very impressed by your photography credentials, even though I don't really care if you even own your own camera when I'm looking for an assistant. Are you afraid that someone looking for an assistant must have clicked on one of the listings that had a business name instead of a person's name? If that's the case, there are NO OTHER listings in your area listed by business name. There must be another reason why no one has contacted you, so I'll leave you quoted here so they can see what a pro you are.
