    You can learn from me.

    I am the bad photographer. As long as u remember my bad points and avoid them, u will be good photographer.

    I would think it depends on what the delivery entails. If it is just simple slot-in pics, it can be very fast. If the couple wants albums with custom layouts, then it'll take longer. The longest we've taken is 6 weeks for a couple who wanted three custom albums (one for morning, one for church, and one for evening) plus slot-in. Also, it depends on the number of assignments during that period. Of course, we'll have to agree beforehand on what the delivery time will roughly be.

    Does that mean we will become a good wedding photographer after we attended the wedding photography course?

    I've stopped opening up these positions for AD weddings for a few reasons and after ONE bad experience.

    Had one really thick skin guy that I really regretted getting to help out. Here's what happened...

    1. Told the guy beforehand about not getting in the way when I shoot, he was told too observe and learn, and guess what? He went right in front of me during some of the important shots. Told him nicely, once, twice and he didn't barge. Ok, nevermind. During tea ceremony, I had to literally tell him to step aside and stop shooting.

    2. The "learner " was more keen to give out his name cards during the shoot, and trying to get business from other relatives and the bride's maids. I told him off and reminded him about his purpose, he ignored and went on to get my client's contact no.

    3. The last straw - he tried to hijack my assignment by actually APPROACHING the couple 4 days after the wedding, and tried to get the balance payment of $700 from the couple. He actually told the couple that I instructed him to print those photos and he was supposed to deliver and collect the balance $$$ from them on my behalf.

    At the end of the day shoot, I was quite pissed already, having missed some shots here and there. For that assignment, I literally worked through the night to get the photos ready, printed by the next morning, delivered it to the couple's suite by 11am just in case. And true enough, 4 days later I received a call from the couple "How come there are extra photos and your assistant is here to collect $ Haven't we paid you the balance?"

    Not saying that everyone's that unethical. But one encounter is enough to make me wary and paranoid.

    Might be a little OT here, but it explains why I always try to deliver the photos ASAP.

    Using other people name to collect money? this is bad, don't think Paul will allow this thing happens to his friends also.

    Anyway, Paul is offer FOC service to his friends, wedding couples like his friends do not comfortable to hire professionals, with or without Paul.
