    hahaha.. After a few events, for sure he knows that it was stupid..
    A mad, keen photographer needs to get out into the world and work and make mistakes.

    McDonald provide your free uniform, free meal, and don't need you buy your own pot and pan to fry the french fry.

    15 to 20 per hour is too little le... he has to take into account:

    the electricity used to charge his camera battery..
    transport fee to the event..
    lunch money..
    transport money to go back home..
    electricity for computer when he does PP...
    electricity for fan/aircon cause nowadays very hot nia..
    the starbucks coffee while doing PP..
    the dvd needed to pass to the client..
    the transport money to deliver the dvd to the client ( unless he mails it la.. then need to buy the stamp and envelope.. ) etc etc..

    15-20 is definitely no deal..

    sound like stock market or forex, so customers need to check his rate often before making booking?

    Actually, I can understand his charges. I mean I am also an amateur photographer trying to build up my portfolio. The only fault I can find is that he stated that he is offering premium photography services which I feel is way out of line.

    Frankly speeaking, he needs to polish up his skill before plunghing into commerical photography.... by the portfolio i saw.... i doubt he will have premium clients as the portfolio is not very gd and the charges cannot go that low as 15 to 20 SGD... this is extremely to low...........

    i think we cannot control how much should a professional charge.

    but looking at what he is charging. he must be working from home, single, with no liabilities and no need to feed family. and since he is shooting with 1000D.

    well.. guys. chill.... really. take a nice cup of hot tea and sit down and read a newspaper.

    $15-20. he might as well work full time in a office. pay much more with much less work.
