    Nicholas can you call is photographer, we need him for an event this weekend. When I look at the name. Immedate I tell me boss, he is 1 of the top photographer* in Singapore.

    When my boss tell me that he is charging $100 an hour. I just drop my jaw.

    Events Co nowadays, I just quote high. Ai mai, mai sua. Just find other things to do nia. Diversify, doesn't need to be photography what.

    I wonder if my VG friend got paid in full for his stint at Marina Sq for Singapore Fashion Festival.

    It's weird, last time I see fashion show like ants to sugar. Now I see, its....argh!

    I was prepaing to pay like $400 to $500 an hour since he is so popular.

    Amassbar for a top camera. Appear on TV and Newspaper. The way he talk like he is the best of best. But only charge $100 an hour.

    The best part is I only meet him for 2-3 hour...

    $100 is way too low.

    Nothing is impossible in photography, especially when it comes to undercutting market rates. Let's not make a big hoo-ha over this for seasoned CSers should be used to the wonders of underpriced photography services.

    Did you ask your boss his relationship with that photographer?

    Did your boss ever engage him to shoot for other big jobs?

    Would you mind asking the photographer if he is hard up for money?

    Is it certain that the photographer is not asking someone to shoot instead of himself?

    Pricing is never a direct affair.

    To ask all your question is that he want to stay long with us and do not mind to paid low.
    That is this style, my friend who own an event company also engage him for some event shoot. When my friend tell me he is charge at this rate, I just could not believe what my friend was tell me. Until my boss tell me.

    Thanks for the clarification. I would consider that pricing as normal then. Nobody has a gun pointed to their head to be forced to become a photographer.

    S$100/hr for an event shoot, very good $$!


    some clowns offer F.O.C.


    i would say that S$100/hr is very very decent $$.
