since you guys are in this business, so have a question for you.
What is the standard dresscode for you when you are shooting an AD?
Reason i asked is that i have just attended a wedding recently and the dresscode of the paid photographer shocked me. She was in 3Q shorts, spag top and a pair of flip-flops for the shooting. Even though, the lunch wedding is in a respected hotel, she was also in the same dresscode. One will take a while to realise that she is the photographer.
Personally, i feel that as a paid photographer (regardless of fees), you will need to have the professionalism to dress at least in jeans, tees/polos and covered shoes for the AD. Even if the wedding is conducted in a HDB covered area, as long as the wedding theme doesn't spell beachwear, he/she should have show the basic respect for the event.
Some of you may think that good skills are more important but i feel that the dresscode will show others how seriously you respect the event and also, about yourself.
i do not want to name this photographer but please, for those who are in this business, please respect the event and dress up for it. Don't spolit the good names of the others.
agree with me?
