I agree, that was my point as well, but put in different terms than yours, which maybe I have created a misunderstanding?

I probably misunderstood your post.

Sounds like a line from the movie Taken. :lol:

Were you referring to this quote?
If you are looking for ransom I can tell you I don't have money, but what I do have are a very particular set of skills. Skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you. If you let my daughter go now that'll be the end of it.

If you are looking just for an image, I can tell you, everyone has a camera, but what I do have is a particular set of photographic skills. Skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make even the most mundane subject look enticing. If you let me photograph for you now that'll be the end of it.
