I'm kinda new to the forum, and this is my first post. Just needed to hear some opinions on this.
A few days ago, I chance upon an ad on gumtree.sg for a part-time photographer to take 1,000 pics about Singapore life. The pay is $50@250 pcs with a deadline of 7 days for each batches (250 pics).
Thinking in mind that each batches will be taken fm the same site and wanting a chance to add something extra to my portfolio, I applied for the job.
I was told by the client to propose 25 topics abt singapore life other than 25 topics that he already had, and was to take 10 pics for each topic. Furthermore, I'm required to prepare a powerpoint slide for the pictures. Attached with the email is a ppt sample with a picture of a mouse on one, and the english and chinese title on the 2nd.
As the client didn't elaborate further, I thought I only need to insert titles for each topics. I know that the pay wasn't really worth it, but since I've promised the client, I agreed to try it.
However, when I was almost done with the pictures and halfway through my editing, I was told by my client that I actually need to insert the eng + chinese titles for EACH picture in the ppt.
I didn't agree to it, since the client also refuses to increase the pay, and we just couldn't come to an agreement.
By principal, I should complete the task that I promised at the initial price, but I just isn't worth all the effort. Moreover, the ppt slides are for kids fm 3 mths - 3 yr old.
So, what do you guys think? I just hope that others will be informed about this so that they won't get into the same trouble =)
