    so i will not do anything less than that for commercial shoots. so el cheapo clients will look for el cheapo photographers!!!! keke........

    as for weddings, 50% of the payment will be paid to me prior to the shoot. this is to make sure they do not back out last minute. keke.......
    wah u collect 50%.. i collect only $200.. which is LESS than 50% .. ahhaha (in case anyone was wondering...)

    maybe i should up to 50% too..

    u get any customers "complain" about such a (non-refundable) deposit?

    I have roughly two years of full time experience behind me too but my freelancer days are much longer. Don't count on your luck that you won't meet that kind of clients in future. Contract works both ways. It might not actually work in real world but there's a psychological assurance that you are not going to jump bail(some freelancer didn't turn up last minute during wedding/ROM) and they not gonna do likewise to you too.

    wei some minors in here........just lucky and i know the luck will run out one day. so now it's time to draft out a 10 page contract!!!!! so the couple will think 10 times on whether to get married and hire a photographer. i have encounter before only one el cheapo couple who wants to pay only $250....

    after much PR work, i convince them to take my irristable package. hehe...as i gave them a deal they could not refuse. at the end of the day they paid about $1,400. so that was the worst case scenerio so far............

    10 pages? I call Wedding Proposition Super Budget Breakdown! Perhaps the couple will skip the process of wedding and go straight to cohibiting and child rearing stage!
