It's not the event organiser's fault.Originally Posted by espn
If an EVENT photographer fails to bother to find out what his job entails, he's not suitable. I've had photographers who can't recognise the VIP come up to me and ask for a photo. I didn't have, so in the end I got someone to point him out.
Some of the photographers now ah, very cocky. Dunno if they think they are still children, everyone must consult them before being allowed to continue. Think they don't get the point that they're being paid to do things. Simply not interested in the job.
Event organisers do not owe it to the photographers to brief them. Whilst they still do to hopefully avoid c*ck ups, they may not have time at all. If such c*ck ups happen, the photographer will be blacklisted forever by whom i'm working for. There's always more eager and interested amateur event photographers out there.
