    Of course you can challenge your boss if you feel that your method can achieve better result.. After you find & secure a job somewhere else first

    Boss is always right, no point fighting.
    Think of concepts and work towards it.

    Obviously, the issue is not about the photographer....
    Pictures always should have a special story behind it or a special meaning to the photographer.

    TS should go to his boss's boss and volunteer to do the whole thing FREE in house. So that the company saves money and he can demonstrate his capability.

    But the thing is did you know very clearly what needed to be shot? Did you tie down with your boss earlier? Sometimes the problem is miscommunication. If you did not have a clear direction for him, of course he anyhow shot.

    I kena once. Did some shoots for a shop at Jurong Point. The manager said shoot the clothes, but the boss said shoot the salesgirl in the clothes. I said no, the salesgirl cannot be the model, trust me. So the boss said she would find a good model herself. There goes - waited for two weeks, finally got a nice model, from Malaysia (a lot here would know her). The boss is not the picky type. She just wanted a lot of photos. So I gave her a lot of photos. She was very happy with the tons of photos she received and I was very happy with some extra cash in my pocket.

    ok i think i see the problem here .... its natural even for me to get upset when people/teams I am comfortable and used to working with gets changed and when new team/person comes in I give them a hard time so that I can prove my supervisor that a wrong decision was made.

    I used to just bo chap , cover my own backside and give the sop basics ..... and then stand back and watch the disaster play itself out

    This new team also cork up ..... no street smarts and ZERO EQ .... should have known that they were in a new environment and new client and should have done some ice-breaking first (just in case there are people not used to them doing work previously done by someone else ) as well as engage people like you more for clues and ideas

    Last year, our new external IT system maintenance support contractors came in with kopi, milo and 2 big boxes of doughnuts on their first day just to kowtow to the hands-on people they'll be dealing with .....even to juniors. Everything so far very swee swee

    This is your own fault lah. When your boss hire you, you should have checked with her if she has any farked up incompetent photographer friend that may shoot for the company.
    BTW, what is CCB?

    The joker clearly didn't care about making any impression because he's already assured $2k by the boss, and further future projects.

    Ordinary people like us have to make sure we really earn that same $2k, and hopefully get called back again.
