Thread: Is doing freelance wedding photography considered as MOONLIGHTING?

    Exclamation Is doing freelance wedding photography considered as MOONLIGHTING?

    I believe quite a lot here are not full time professional wedding photographer but as freelance while holding on to a day job. Does your company allow such mumbo jumbo??? Or you all secretly do it??? Is it moonlighting???

    I thought moonlighting refers to you working in the same business area for that might have conflict of interest?

    Moonlighting = doing a second job outside of normal working hours.
    Example: a factory worker moonlighting as a taxi driver.

    If there isn't a conflict of interest, ur actions can be considered as a hobby! A part-timer amatuer at most.

    It is consider moonlighting unless you do it for free.

    Think his concern is his day job contract stated "No moonlighting". hee hee

    BTW, are you related to "Ding Shan Ben"? Found similarities in you two.

    I think very few companies care what you do with your free time as long as you clock in on time and able to keep your eyes open at work.

    I have heard people moonlighting as taxi driver (he parked his taxi in front of the company), insurance agent, salesman, nightclub waiter, private tutor, hawker etc etc. One printing products saleman even sold his own printing products beside his company ones.

    Wow, photographer moonlighting as taxi driver...
    That reminds me the New York taxi driver who takes photos while he is driving around with his taxi.

    What about in this case

    Someone employed as worker in a factory, but he/she runs shop by hiring people to do the job, the shop's business is non-related to the employed job. So, in this case is no conflict of interested, and he/she doesn't work in the shop.

    Moonlightlight??

    I'll call that "a step towards financial independence".

    so read your employment contract careful.... can do part-time job/other job or not.

    IMHO, I hardly see any employment contract will state that you can work part time.
