Not necessarily the best shots but consistent ones. As a professional you need to be reliable and consistent the op doesn't sound like either. I agree with Fay Goldin, turning down work and experience at such an early stage doesn't bode well at all. It may very well have been a personal issue which is unavoidable and understandable but the post infers that he went out for the night socialising instead.
As for FF camera bodies, pro lenses etc, no you don't need them to get a great shot but if you're going pro you undoubtedly will. You have to maintain standards and image quality. If I was a client paying the going rate and you turned up with a prosumer camera and lens I wouldn't be too chuffed. It gives the
, rightly or wrongly, that you don't really know what you're doing, not to mention image quality and performance of that equipment. Take some photographic agencies, they will only accept images of a certain resolution which cropped sensor cameras can't really achieve.
