Hi. I am a freelance photographer.
I have a problem with a client. Hope i could get some advices from a neutral point of view.
I was engaged by someone to shoot his ROM lunch some 2 months back. We agree on $X of fees. No written contract.
I delivered all the highres images to him bout 2 wks after for him to view and select for his photo album. I got half of the payment.
No reply even bout 1 month plus after that despite calling a few times, all my calls will be met with excuses such as busy, etc.
I called him last sunday for a bout 5 times over a period of 3-4 hrs with no answer from him. I went to his place straightaway hoping to catch him at his home and hopefully get a partial of the remaining payment from him. His brother was at home instead and the brother helped me to call him and straightaway he answered. (coincidence or he was avoiding my call?)
He insisted he wasnt wrong and send me away, promising to tt the money electronically to me instead. I agreed and left without steppin foot in the house and without using any verbal abuses or whatsoever. I jus explained the situation in a firm tone and thats about it.
Just now he send a sms to me, saying now he will only give me the money IF i go to his place and apologise to his whole family for harassing them or else they will sue me.
Do they have any basis of suing me??
In what way did i handle the matter wrongly?
Any advices, positive or negative are appreciated. Thanks!
