what say you??
... or demanding scavengers...
to all sign up ClubSNAP just for photographer hunting:
some photographers are cheap,
some photographers are good,
some think they are good and cheap
some think they are good and affordable
some think they are good and value for money
so, how good is good? how cheap is cheap?
now, who can define they are good?
and who can define they are cheap?
why every year people asking for salary increment, but why when come to asking for photography budgets, are getting smaller and smaller as year passes by?
you need to eat, wear, stay, travel, so you demand to get paid accordingly to the living standard here, the photographers are human too, they do have a family to rise, feed and maintain. why can't photographers demand to get what they worth for?
so, if anyone sign up clubsnap is looking for cheap and good photographers.
good luck to you...
cos, if I'm good, why should I charge cheap?
and if I'm charging cheap now, I might rise my price tomorrow cos I don't know that I under price myself earlier.
also, someone may charging low, cos thinking their standard not too high..
or think that they are inexperience...
well this is the risk that you have to take...
you want to try your luck, no one will stop you..
if you can't, you will know what to do..
finally, wish you happy hunting..
i was amused by the title of thread...but honestly you pay peanuts, u get monkeys.
Even if there are really good, cheap photographers, sooner or later they will raise the prices after some time, after they get experience of meeting demanding, unreasonable clients.
first, where to find cheap and good loh mee, then nasi lemak, now photographers!
Like the Hokkien saying goes:
Want big ____
in CS of cos.
we've all kinds here.
cheap and normal? -- > Checked.
cheap and good? --- > Checked.
cheap and rubbish? --> Checked.
F.O.C and total newbie trying his/her luck in the market? ---> Checked too.
and so on and so forth... the expensive, the very expensive... etc.
it's a melting pot of all sorts.
You'll Never Walk Alone! - i have the best job in the world!
