We know that the client is always right, but if I have enough clients to keep me busy and this particular client is just a small one and has been giving me a headache ever since I started doing business with them just a couple of months ago I would have done the same thing.
Just let them go, and fully concentrated well on clients that give you full authority in executing your ideas.
Why waste time on small clients and get stress by them?
If you think you can afford to let the client goes, why not just tell them off?
client servicing is really about accomodating... and client servicing makes us rich..
a better way to say it will be.."i apologize that my capabilities don't meet your expectations" and turn down the client... rather than try to do something we aren't confident in and screwing up our reputation.
But Agreed.... a knowledgable client always look at what you can do first... very little occasions that you'll ever need to use that line up there...
An agency once hired me for the job though they don't really agreed with the way I shoot ( PR event and they want pictures of ALL the guest in "stand in a row look into the camera and smile" but I hate "Police Line Up Shots" ) but I know the client :bsmilie: and they insist that I do the shoot.
In the end, I shoot what the client wants to see ( my style ) and also what the agency wanted to see ( the agency's style ).
Moral of the story, "Don't like my style, fine. What's the style you like? I'll see if I can do it." This is how I pay the bills
