Dear all photographers connected to Clubsnap,
I just return from Perth, looking for jobs as photographer. Unfortunately ran into a bit of trouble. Was told that Clubsnap got lots of professional and experience photographer who might be able to give pretty good advise.
There was this advertisment posted in www.bestjobs.com.sg, vacancy for photographers. The company that advertise for it was a Michewilliams International. The advertisment offer to pay $50 per images.
So I went to the office at Robinson Road, Robinson Centre, 17th floor. Met this man who introduce himself as Mr William Soon, CEO of the company. He showed me an impressive album for a magazine Micheworld Magazine. Showed him my portfolio, and he downloaded quiet a number of my files, saying that he needed photos urgently for the coming issue. Promised to pay me, but said the cheque will not be ready till the next day.
Guess what. This fellow tried to pull a quick one on me. Now says he can only pay me much later after the magazine ia launch!! I got so angry with him at the office. I then realised, he lied about his magazine. The magazine he showed me previously was fake! Not even published yet! I refused to leave til he pay up and he called the police from his mobile phone!
What can I do? To prove that this is not a prank job, anynody can verify with the advertisement at www.bestjobs.com.sg, the company who advertise the photographer vacancy is Michewilliams International.
