    Looks like someone is trying to get photography services for free.

    hmm. my opinion,tat guy doesnt know u. or else he wont put "hello there"
    event photography usually costs a good 500 bucks and u arent paid.
    he didnt mention which company he is from and where the hell is clubstomp? i dun believe in a single moment tat he can post ur photos on a ST forum. especially when ur not paid, so the rights of photos belongs to u.

    and his spelling sucks. what on earth is great opportunity to build on ur opportunity?

    ironically, its a "private" event tat the photos will be showed on a "public" website. its very contradictory.

    Most likely this is a company D&D and they are looking for a free photographer. Notice ther start with "Hello there" ? Think they have send this out as a mess email to others as well.

    Not sure if having your photo on Stomp can be considered as "portfolio"

    well. i personally had a few cases of my own too. just to let u know. its sometimes better to not do stuff for free.

    1: its a waste of time.
    2: u are giving up rights for free
    3: i hate ppl who use newbies for free.
    4: usually ppl who do free stuff (unless is for buddies etc and friends ) all cant shoot and will tarnish other photographers doing photography as a profession the name.
