    Not necessarily that professional or full-timer have such a long period of time delievering their works. Sometime a popular freelancer as well(eg: jOhO )

    I WILL ask the couples, when will they be back from their honeymoon. If they back one week later, the photo will be ready one week later; if they back after a month, the photo will also ready after a month ...

    I took with F4/F5 .... so i actually dun need much thing to worry, i will send all the films to process on the next day morning, will be ready on that day afternoon lor ...

    Unlike alot " pian jia " photographer out there .... they took with DSLR, raw files somemore, and take 1 see 1 delete 1 (we call them TSD) ... then go back crop here crop there. Or worst, took 1500 photo and choose 300, ...... ( For time use to see all 1500 photo, already need 1 week liao lor ) of course need much longer delivery time lar

    Actually i also use DSLR with F mouth .... but not D100 or D70 lor ... ...

    So far, my most busy month, can catch 18 mouse in a month ...
    but WILL ALWAYS on the table when they back singapore lor

    Hot hot mouse ..... eat while hot .....

    can lar.. can teach u.. but u must wait 8 weeks lor.

    anyway back to the topic,

    i really wonder how long it'll take me to deliver if i'm fulltime (as in more time to edit since it's my ft job, so should be faster, but 3 days???).

    i opened this thread becos recently i've been rushed for the photos beyong my usual "comfort zone". usually customers never ever push me for them, quite often, they are the ones that have no time to meet up becos of their busy schedule "post honeymoon"... mainly with work, since they've been away for so long....

    No lar .... dun wait too long lar .... if they really no go honeymoon, then try to give them within a week to 10 days lor, while they are still "heart warm warm" lor .... if you drag too long .... they will forget they have already married lor ... haha
    Show them your professionalism .... more mouse will follow one by one come and walk into your mouth ...

    hmm.. that's why i wanted opinions on how long a time frame we have before we are deemed "unprofessional" not that this is easy to determine...

    "mice" have been coming pretty often.. not that i'm complacent, hence the reason for this thread. i would love to deliver in 3 or even 1 day, but definitely not at the expense of my quality. post processing is a very integral part of how good (or bad) my photos are, which could raise the point where i could be a poor photographer, but a good photoshopper? i guess i'll let my customers determine that.

    anyway appreciate ur inputs, either way i have to speed things up i guess. it's an not excuse that my ft job is KILLING me all by itself, i dun even need to freelance anything, i'd be dying already...

I know of the very popular wedding Photographer Sam Wong told me that his peak months could be anything from 13 to 20 wedding assignment days in a month and his clients have to wait more than a month(sometimes even two for his work).

    The most a videographer can take is not more than five a month or else the clients will start complaining. I have survived the experiences of six a month but almost died!
    As a freelance, if I was asked to shoot one wedding every weekend, die man. No time to enjoy other funs.

    One full day wedding = hand pain (dane heavy with 1D + 24-70 + 550EX)
    The next day got to process digital files. u see, the whole weekend is gone.
