Allowance and angpow will in my personal view (don't rely on it if you have a big case, pay for formal advice ), will constitute sufficient consideration to form a contract.
If you want transport, then bring the receipt and pass the cost through to the client directly; in that way, the argument that there is no consideration to form a contract will be much stronger.
IMHO, if you good enough with all these in your portfolio, definitely someone will start ask you for some job.
- travel photography, be creative, let people know that you have good perspective
- Friends gathering, family party, let people know that you can shoot nice candid shots, and capture good moments
- Ask people around, for opportunity to tag on for wedding shoot.. or offer to shoot the groom side and table shots if the couple only engage one photographer
hope above helps..

Any website to intro for this portfolio thingy?
any website with large amount of space?
SAMSUNG HMX- H100
In my case, i'm building up my portfolio by covering as many sports events and other conference events to be exposed to the different kinds of work environment. (I'm training to be more of a sports journalist). I'm paid to cover the sports events but not the other events but its not all about the money when you are first starting out.
Just continue taking pictures and ask around people that you know, they usually give you the opportunity to do photoshoots or events for them.
Just be humble and work hard in improving your photography.
cool...where u get such lobangs? not that im interested la. i dun intend to make photography a career.
I beg to differ as well,
I charge cheap, no style people will expect something somewhat. They have no clue good means expensive and expect alot from someone holding the camera but at the end frustrated as the photographer is still learning, colours not nice, compositions not nice. There is very little to based from these cheap clients as the new photographer has little experience to show clients how he see things.
I charge expensive, got style, ppl will hire me for my style, at the end I get very little comments about work differing to their thoughts. They know what they are after when they come to me.
Lawyers and photographers are not the same although we do charge the same by the hour.
That is becuase the client does not know what is the difference between cheap and expensive. It is the same as someone whose world of hamburgers is only confined to Macdonalds; and hence he does not know that a S$100 wagyu burger is all about.
Once you get past this barrier, I'm sure you will agree that with a larger sum of money paid, you will expect more. If I tell you that you will pay S$300 to stay one night in Hotel X, and S$50 to stay in Hotel Y; will you still have the SAME expectations of standard and quality?
Hence if your barrier is because the client doesn't know; then you can tell him that S$X will get you X standard, and S$10X will get you Y standard. Same as if he pays S$X for an Akira TV as opposed to S$Y for a Pioneer TV.

Dude a some what simplist way to look it at. Most people have a yard stick of measure - it just may not be very precise for somethings they do no use. If they had to use, with internet and doing their due deligence they should in short order have a better picture at least of price ranges and if they are paying they will form some value judgement about what they are seeing in terms of photo, service of lawyers, tailors what ever. If they cannot make out between a wolf and a dog, well it time to be a communicator and educate.
By the way I like the way you present advice without prejucdice without professional engagement statement - 8-) so it means what you write about legal matters here is in same light ? Leading question format heheh
2nd para was about your statement on how legal advice given without payment ie non engagement of a lawyer , the lawyer is not responsible for wrong info and cannot be sued for damages. Which means any legal advice you give here is so such a nature as that you will not be responsible legally for any errors.
I still disagree with your generalization on expectations follows price - in that it is a generalization in several places.
its a great weekend, instead of rebutting your life in Clubsnap, why not spend some great time with your partner. Enjoy & GET A LIFE! Life is not about fighting endless battles in the court, office of on your computer in CS.
Hmm, well I never purported to give any legal advice in this forum, my comments here are just the same as any other comment from any other ordinary poster; I doubt you'll attach any responsibility to any advice (legal, photographic, business, etc) given here in the forum as well
