think TS giving him last chance.....
Imagination is more powerful than words.
Lessons learnt for all.
Make an announcement in this forums for him to contact u. Give him 1 week exactly to response. If still no action, u know wat to do. At least u had given him a fair chance/time period.
I think that announcement has already been made, and several weeks have already passed.
Sorry to hear about your msfortune. Hope everything is OK now aka photos recovered!!!
Have been shooting wedding photos for friends (so far 4 weddings already), 2 of them being from the moring till night. Imagine the stress I had even though they have backup photographers (3 weddings using film SLR). The thing is lost monents and memories can never be recovered. Luckily all these times nothing happens. The joy of them seeing the photos are really fulfilling, making each of your sleepless nights (before the films were developed) worth it (as I do it for free as a gift for friends).
Nowadays I have shifted to dSLR. I always keep multiple copies. 2 copies in DVDs, 1 copy in laptop hdd and one copy in extrnal hdd. I will only delete the files from CF cards AFTER all the backups.
for me, i very singaporean.
after shooting, i backup to my portable harddisc and then my harddisc in my computer. My computer harddisc is then mirrored 2 harddiscs. only after confirmation that all images can be viewed i delete the info from my CF card.
although some may think i am overboard, i personally do not want to take chances to someone's once in a lifetime event.
Hope the images are recovered eventually......
interested to know how much u paid. oh man. this is a good learning lesson. i shd start backing up more copies of each wedding i shoot from now on
OK here's the long awaited information of him.
This is him
He approached the wife and I on his own personal capacity, but like I mentioned earlier, he is not an amateur. He is one third of the photographer in this company
Till date, we have yet to hear from him. IF any of you guys know him, please do let him know that he should be responsible in coming forward and at least let us try to rectify the problem..
If you can see how this thread was first created, it was never about defaming or criticising his work, it was more about seeking a solution. But now that it seems that he is dissapearing, I think its just appropriate that his identity be known...
the site looks decent n the shots are fine (those on the site), but just from the site, i have doubts about the company's professionalism as they dun even have a real address and telephone number
Canon: 5DMkIII, 7D, 2470f2.8L, 50f1.8, 70200f2.8L IS II, 430EX II, 600EX
Just a legal background primer check, did you contract with him or that company?
Also, does he know of this thread yet?

His "portrait" works really make me laugh. Pre-wedding stuff? OMG... Wad sort artistic works are we seeing here??! Do they even have the slightest idea of what COMMERCIAL photography is all about??
A typical pro-wannabe-armed-with-a-DSLR-who-screws-up-job..
Hope everything turns out good for you. Ask him for full compensation and if necessary, take legal action against such individual who spoils the image of real professional.
Used to crash a 200gb hdd also.Lucky that just self collection of photo.Learn from that now keep 2x500gb external hdd for just photo backup.
Looks like connected to this?
http://www.clubsnap.com/forums/showthread.php?t=350170 see the signature of the thread starter. Perhaps you can PM him
*if* I don't remember wrongly (and if i am wrong, someone do please correct me), 3some was a spinoff from a group calling themselves budgetshots or something. The working pro here that frequents the various bridal forums might be familiar with the people i mentioned.
I've contacted Robin and i asked him to take a look at the thread. i won't comment as it's his personal job.
I've checked the records and this job didn't appear so i'm sure it's not under us. Or at least it's not within my knowledge.
