Let him be. We got no control over it. If you want ppl to aware of this situation, maybe post in your blog etc etc etc.. I will be doing that later on.

If you are a client, such a good deal, will you engage? Risk involved too. Such spoiler happens everywhere and he is asking for fast cash.

I'm not surprised by the $28/hr charge.

What I am very, very surprised at is the number of 'professional' photographers who claim that he is 'spoiling' the market.

What have the poor teen done to deserve such continued and determined slamming by 'Professional' ? Unless your skill are on par with him, are you?

I hope the moderator will do something just and fair about this.

are you sure those who responded in the thread last night, all of them are professionals?

a young boy can claim professional himself, so can to many other people.
who is the real professionals living by shooting? only the person himself knows.

Precisely, I don't, hence the quotation marks.

Anyone who is free enough to respond to this thread... I am doubtful that they are professionals.

it is very common to use big and nice words to promote oneself, many individuals and companies being doing that.

as long ones does not attack competitors or any others in the same trade, there is nothing wrong about this.

Just happened to receive this interestnig link from my friend. A so-called "professional" create another new thread to slam newbies.
He is not wrong by charging at lower range price.

By comparing these 2 website:

http://www.kelvinkhoophotography.com/portfolio/?album=1&gallery=5
http://hongrayphotography.webs.com/charges.htm

Of course i will choose the newbie. As a customer, we will choose the photograher based on their skill and price. If you wan to charge a higher price and call yourself "pro", u at least must increase your skill and website first.

You have to think for the future of yourself in this indusrty. If you can living on a low rate as a real freelance photographer in singapore see how long you going live on the low rate you are offering to the clients.

1) you will have to buy your daily meals

2) transport, you have to top up your ezlink card if the values rans low or hail a cab to go place where bus is not available.

3) in the long ran, you will have to pay your own insurance and hp bill etc if you parents stopping to support you.

4) you need the money to get new equipments in the long ran if you are want to be a freelance photographer.

5) if equipment spoils, need the funds to send it to service centre to get your equipment repaired.

6) your computer down or cannot work.. need the money to get new computer if the parents dun support you.
