    Aiya let's be frank about this lah. It's the lousy photographers here that are complaining about the miserable pay lah. The real pros are the one earning the big bucks.

    Lousy photographers are those whom did one or more jobs before (usually for relatives or friends), and just becos of some flattering (becos the other parties didn't want to peisah him, and also he's doing it for free), think that they are GOD-SENT, and thought that they are good, and want to charge to shoot. There are plentiful over over the photography portal, CS inclusive.

    true story too... in nice, more politically correct terms.
    It depends very much what is he shooting.

    Now this is arguably the chimest quote we've seen in ClubSnap for a long time.

    I can see a Singapore idol contestant coming on stage and turn it into a song:

    "u chao kuan
    i suay kuan...
    everybody Hey everybody
    see our si lang kuu...aaan

    u chao kuan
    i suay kuan......"

    big companies always do that... thats the game they play, u ask for COD, they give u 30Day later, u give them 15 day term, they drag 60 days, u give them 30 days terms, they think its 120days term, u give them 60 days terms, they thought u give them sample...

    and best of all, they still got cheek to ask u for a sample that cost few hundred dollars... and no confirmation ordering, and no prior order. and most likely, will only order 1 from you with a JIT or Urgent PO.

    anyway, i find that sometimes service too good, ppl take for granted, if service not good, they kpkb, i think i spoilt my customers... esp when u talk to nice to them, some ppl just love to be smacked...

    no no why you so derr kuan (pig :X). anyway i'll always tell the customers that it's a Matter of Principle (they'll say my foot but whatever).

    i always believe that no one likes to owe money. thing is, they have few creditors. e.g. S$20 debt , owe S$10 each to 2 creditors, pay who 1st ? so basically the job of creditors mainly is to act faster than other creditors lor

    I think it is quite well known in our industry that local education institutions don't even pay a cent for photography. We always do free jobs for schools in Singapore context.

    Don't mind me adding on to it.

    I am not paid. I just help out in taking shots of school event when I was in my secondary school.

    I do know on the fundings & budgeting. I shall not reveal it here, but bottom line is, they expect you to do xxx yyy zzz. But when comes to spending of money for say purchase of equipments or accessories, you'll get to hear 90% of the time "Not enough funds" when you can see other areas of the school are being improvised

    I think it quite dependant on each educational institution management.
