I just got a request by my friend to help her company cover a company trip.

for free.. they claim they will PAY FOR MY TRIP.

Let me clear this, its not a trip to a very exotic location(next door only), its a 3 day trip, and their grp is not exactly small (100+)

Would any idiot actually take up this kinda job for free?

you should take up the offer under 1 condition: you need a PA (preferably your gf/wife) and your cam will be your Sony Ericsson K800i :think:

Normally, I will be the first to slam your friend for exploiting photographers. However, been in the same shoe before.

If they hire you, you will have to be an approved sub-contractor, your service/fees will be up for review and approval etc etc etc.

However, by paying your transportation, room and board, your cost can be hidden within other budgets. I once negotiated a similar arrangement, we did offer to take the photographer's wife along as his assistant. All worked out quite well.

Now, the key question, your friend :) .....

Who is SHE to ask for free.
Are you a free-lance photographer? Or just a hobbyist? if so, get a assistant to follow you to help out. Not easy to handle 100+ ppl, you know?
FREE?? must set condition.too.
Clean Air & Water not free, you know?
Your Camera FREE one?? You have to pay, also mah.
Ask HER for some allowance like S$100 x 3days, better than nothing.
Don't be an IDIOT

err,just say no to her manager's request.....;) since you find the conditions not satisfactory.

Sure you could spend your time better than to cover the trip, right?

The fact that you have doubts already tells that you don't feel comfortable. So the answer is clear, don't take the "offer".

Go some where further & at the same time can do some diving will be better :)
