    Think you need to up your budget especially you are requesting editing of photos after downloaded all the pictures on the same day. I think the photographer has fulfil his role, editing wise you may need to pay him for his time spend to edit.

    so many requirements and you only paying $100 - $150

    $100 - $150 per hour is the correct range!

    you got your own gear, you want to save money ask your relative to shoot... save you the $100 - $150 already

    just think about WHY ARE YOU HIRING A PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHER IN THE FIRST PLACE

    Brother I suggest there is not need to spend any money take the $100 buy another trigger so you can remotely fire the camera - that way you can do it yourself for the family part. shoot wider and crop in post. See how you can save money and tell your friends and family you number one photographer.

    What you mean by professional DSLR or mirrorless? Seems like a lousy photographer will do as long as he carries a camera that looks big and scary!

    You stated requirement for all the wrong reasons. You even trying to entice the responder to use your gear thinking a gear will produce good result without having the slightest thought one may need sometime to learn abt your equip. I shouldn't be telling you and let the responder fumble with it and eat into your time. You thinking by lending your gear can cut another $50?

    I really feel like not commenting but can't help it. Too many cheapo trying their luck.

    I understand there might still be photographers (be it newbie, students, or desperate for portfolio etc) interested in taking $150 3 hour job with many requirements.

    But I'm damn curious which PROFESSIONAL photographer will return RAW?
    Please update me if any photographer who took up your event and willing to return the RAW, ok? Just wanna kill my curiosity.

    LOl, I'm also asking myself same question. Give back raw on same day? Means the photog must firstly owned a high end camera with 2 card slots. And photog edit using jpg? Tough job.

    I am going to be absolutely blunt here. Someone will VERY LIKELY take on the job and the TS will VERY LIKELY post that here to rub it in that there are people who will still take on the job.

    Why? Because some people won't understand and feel the pinch that proper professionals feel. And because people are willing to take on the job however ridiculous the fees and requests are, more of such requests will come in.

    Can't say that anybody is to blame really. Ultimately we got to ask ourselves. Are we willing to pay a fair price for quality or not? If not, why should anyone else do so?

    I'm laughing my ass off. This guy is either lazy or he's jus plain cheapo. Got gear means u can pay an amount that is That "much"? Some people try luck like an idiot. Be smart at least

    since Ponraj thinks that professional gear means professional quality images then just shoot yourself, why bother to request for photographer from this forum ??? And no decent professional who have self respect for their profession will take up work with such budget. It's a mockery

    would be funny to have a professional but doesn't even have his own camera at least 1.

    Perhaps there can be a stickie in the services wanted section to set the right expectations on both end to prevent undercutting whether deliberate or innocent.

    There is. Dates back to 2013.

    again.. despite repeated reminders, a lot of 'Help Wanted' ads try to skirt the rule of 'no-free-service' ads unless pre-approved by the Admins beforehand by deliberately not stating payment details and merely asking interested photographers to email interested parties involved.

    hence, from now on, all 'Help Wanted' ads must carry payment details so that it is transparent for all readers. again, we cannot stop people who want to give their works away for free. but, as a general rule, CS is not condoning exploitation of photographers.

    This has been suggested many times in the past.

    My personal guess is that I don't think CS is in a position to set any sort of indicative $ even if the Admins decided they wanted to.

    First, CS is not a professional body.

    Second, even if CS somehow became a professional body, actual professional bodies like the Singapore Medical Association have gotten into trouble with the Competition Commission of Singapore, and had to remove their fee guidelines after it was ruled anti-competitive under the Competition Act. Will need to apply for some sort of exemption for your industry before you can do so.

    Anyway, 'services wanted' section is not the place for extended discussion, we are effectively bumping up TS's thread with each reply. I suggest we take the discussion out of this thread, will move the posts out to a separate thread.

    ok, let's discuss in another thread. I think there should be a sustainable solution otherwise will be forever end up with these requests whether intentional or not, and then getting blasted.
