I am starting this thread as I do not want others to suffer the same losses as me and to be cheated by people whom claim that they are professionals.
Basically, I needed someone to do a product shoot for me and this man Joseph Hong the so called editor (www.impressionsonline.sg) called me and raved about his professional and good styling services. After having heard his presentation, decided to use him as he gave me a reasonable quote. ( 45 pairs of shoes for $1500, $150 for 10 shots of talent legs and 2 pairs of shoes)
As he was only the editor, he claim that he will get his best stylist and photographer whom he partner for years to be involve in the whole product shoot. That is Danny the stylist and a photographer whose studio is at one corner of down town east. (Can't rem the photographer name and studio, is was beside a shop selling 2nd hand luxury bags)
I brought down the shoes to the studio and was there the whole afternoon looking at them taking the shots. I must say they didnt look at all professional to me. But I feel as long as the end product is good, there's nothing I can say. The editor Joseph Hong told me he work with fann wong before and says she is very stuck up then the stylist continue by saying he works with ayumi (the jap singer) also not that stuck up.
The photoshoot is finally done, I pay them and left. Took the disc one week later and realize that there are black spots all over the photos, even on the talent legs as well. I called joseph and he said he is very disappointed with the photographer and will get a reshoot done for me. For the next 3 months, I email and called him, he then kept delaying the photoshoot and after that, he just never reply or pick up the call anymore.
So please watch out for these 3 person;
Joseph Hong - Editor (website address: www.impressionsonline.sg)
Danny - Stylist
