    But at 150nett to 300nett for 2-3 hours of shooting? Come on, that doesnt even cover equipment cost, not to mention post. At least the charge should be a half day rate (~60% of day rate), since nothing else can be done on that day.

    You get what you pay for. No difference in this situation. As for head chop chilli chop... haha... seriously, she sounds like an "atas" self proclaimed critic (her comments are not wrong, but very biased). Forehead crop is a personal style, some like and some don't (an old classic rule, nothing more after MTV came about). Seriously, her expectations are hollywood standard but bollywood pricing.

    i definitely agree with this. i'm a fan of crop crop forehead! but still... i dunno if the images are that dull from the photographer or she did some PS work...

    but i believe there's mention that the PG has 5 years experience? i'm seriously expecting better stuffs.

    to be totally honest, i read all the posts.

    i feel that Junyi's expectations were those of the super skyscrapper type. if she is paying S$2k for the fotographer, then i feel she is right in her expectations.


    women can be totally unreasonable at times, days... u get it. i've been on the end of it, countless times too, so, pretty experienced with it. ho ho ho!

    in short, pay mini peanuts get monkeys, again! hohoho!

    Eh, i wonder should i ask her to do free shooting for me anot... or maybe i'll throw her 300, another 100 more just for the same things that she say she could deliver... and maybe even throw in another MUA cost... just to see how good she shoot. She could get her 10/10 frens to do free backups too...

    i think she needs to hire Gary Fong to do her wedding fotography.

    at best, her requests are out of the world. if i'm dealing with such a woman, i'll simply walk away and not do her business. i'll feel restricted by her orders and put down by her expectations, hey, its only S$200++(?).

    Probably a mismatch in expectations.
    Firstly I think that wedding photography was BAD and unacceptable .... and I don't think it's got to do with how much he was being paid.
    Photographers, like all professional must have pride in their work and a certain acceptable standard must be achieved. If one does not achieve the minimum standard, one shouldn't accept any job, but instead volunteer to shoot. Tell the couple and asked them to engage another PY, and you act as a support PY. Shoot till one day when many ppl say, they like your images then you can start to collect payment.
    Please la, have some pride in our works!
    always the Light, .... always.

    i feel the company do refund for her is justifiable, and if the company sees the digital photos published should even sue her...

    i'd throw 200 at her, and another 200 to ask her to shoot for my assignments (if any)

    She looks like one of the CS models

    Her tone sounds like she expects branded labels for pasar malam prices
    If you understand my works, it's photography. If you don't, it's art.
