95% of the photography community are insufferable; which may include you. But the people who run this studio may have not been anywhere near true talent, or not like those of it - they're not always going to be the nicest people. (Or they will have their own studio, because renting is retard expensive). But hey, so what that this idiot's convinced them to free access? They're losing out by giving that to the 'hotshot'. Maybe he's very friendly with them. But that never lasts, even if he brings in other people. Same shit happens in gyms.
It's a rare thing to find people who have interesting projects, know their shit about gear (but put a zip on it) and are invested in advancing photography as an art form - not just shitting out tropes. But just do your own shit, well, and it might stick; then you can laugh at them.
