WTB Manfrotto RC4 L Bracket
Its more like getting a personal photographer to shoot their holiday for cheap.
Nowadays these cheapos will say anything to make use of photographers. If they respected the craft of photography and the photographer in the first place they wouldn't be short changing you.
Most likely they can afford to pay but just don't want to, nor see the need when they can try their luck on Clubsnap pulling this trick.

You forgot to add that they should be model looking, not fat and ugly
please state what airline and also which hotel will be provided?
Having the last say doesn't mean you are correct, it just mean you are desperate.
I wonder why there are no ads like this:
"I am looking for a restaurant for a casual pre-wedding dinner 100 pax with three main course dishes, wine, dessert and live music
Having experience in helding wedding banquets is preferred
I am only willing to pay for the forks and tissues"
but there are too many ads like these in photography, especially in wedding one which is much more stressful and responsible job.
Soon or later ClubSNAP service wanted will become as Charity wanted section...
I don't really understand why now a days a lot ppl for asking a free shooting? Low budget? I don't think so bcos thr are plan to krabi..save budget? I also don't think so if thr wan to save then just shoot local la..
TS I have a question in my mind hope you can answer for me..
Q: if your budget low then why you married? Did you wan on your wedding day you going to show your relation that monkey take photo for you?
Pay nut get monkey
TS TS~~ You want to save money also don't need to go into such disgrace act right?
What a cheapo TS is .. posting these kind of request, but an even bigger one whos responding to TS request ...
Do guys have common sense here .. the risk involve vs the effort put in just for that portfolio ? Whats so different between krabi and sentosa when u can produce good photo of each couple (no matter they r nice looking or average looking).
Newbie photographer better put effort in creating beautiful photo of average looking couple than going to waste their time at krabi ..
Hi Everyone, I would like to highlight that we should charge the min to cover our expense , Food, transport etc. I encourage newbie to hunt for experience while the passion is still there. Regardless you are new, amateur or a pro, you do not feed on passion or experience. There is a limited resources everyone start out with, so let be fair and help everyone to earn to fuel the passion.
With Pride we capture image. Not for free!!
I strongly suggest Mod and fellow photographers to share their ideas and advice regarding the Min charge for such similar cases.
I know this is very hard. However as a clubsnap members for few years, it will break my heart to see people taking advantage of fresh/fellow photographers.
My 2cent worth of thought.
its easier said than done. Firstly, when you do that then the authorities will come after you. Cos you are now forming a Cartel which is anti-competive n against the law. My heart has long been broken to see soo many newbies being taken advantage of by intelligent clients who will stop at nothing to reword their conversations to make newbies work for free(just like slaves) and when the results r not what they expect then the newbie better be prepared to face the music/wrath of the client(who would expect nothing but the best from the poor newbie). Wad with social media n all but to me, its always a double-edged sword!
Newbies who offer Free services just be aware cos one day you too can be cut by the other edge of that sword!
Not to forget that equipment sometimes fail you at the most critical of moments! Only pros and the advanced-amateurs
will know how to overcome it & its definately not thru ps. if you got no pics wad is there to ps!
You get what you pay for was a phrase my elders told me long ago, of course they were not talking about paying for "talent". Our TS takes this photography is cheap mentality to an all time low, any lower and it will be that the photographer has to pay for the "honor" of covering this for them. Hey TS may be you need to readvertise and say highest bidder to cover your casual pre wedding shoot will be the shooter for you.
I am sure you will get the photographer that you deserve.
