#1; What is a “semi-novice” photographer. Novice is defined as
“a. a person who is new to or inexperienced in a certain task, situation, etc.; beginner; tyro
b. (as modifier) novice driver”

So you want a starting- novice to work for you.. You planning on telling brides that you have somone one bump below “beginner”

#2…. You are a thief. Your website has a photo from a fellow wedding photographer Ryan Brenizer, a friend of mine from New York, on your main index.
Here is his photo:

Now we see it on your website with Ryan’s logo CROPPED OUT… as if it’s your own photo (from your semi-beginner photographer)

Screenshot of your site:

Photoshoping insoles is definitely going to release me from my boredom. What a perfectly insane idea! Now tell me what could possibly be so enticing about doing your product showcasing for you for free? If you can’t master an answer to that question, tell me how dumb, on the 10-point scale one should be to want to do that? Hmm.. I think 12.
A pair of your insoles “if you use my stuff”? How about you send me a pair, and if I use it, I’ll agree to boot my computer? Hah? Yes, your heard it right. That’s what a pair of your insoles can pay for — just starting my computer.

Really? You want me to take your rap cover photo for FREE?!?? REALLY? Will you come sing at my next party for free? I get $1500 for a shot like that. I tell you what. If you can get the water company to give me a month free I will be glad to shoot your cover for free.

From another professional photographer who reads these post for the chance of serious work, who did not reply to your ad, because I dont work for free.

You get what you pay for(trade for) I hope you get a contract that states how the images can be used. Other wise you may be the next marketing girl fora blow up doll or on the outside of a sex toy package or worse.

Because just because the person is building a port, in this economy you may be pownd and sold.

Always get a contract even for free trades, no contract spells trouble

And I like what my peer stated, plumbers don’t work for free, so why should we. And I doubt he responded to you, posting here is not a response to you honey but just a vent.

So have a great photo shoot and remember spread them wide.

As a professional photographer I get paid to take pictures.

When I take pictures, I already own the copyrights and all the use rights of them.

By giving you a Print, I still own the rights.

By giving you a CD, I still own the rights.

When I give you a limited release, for personal use, I still own the rights.

What do you have to offer exactly would be your time, to pose if I was looking for your style, look, etc.

So you want editing as you requested editing software, and you want images on a disk, and you dont want to pay.

Your offer is the same as if I will ask my plumber to come with his tools, and experience and I will tip him gas money maybe, so he can unclog my back filled toilet. He can keep any thing he wants once he is done, because I will let him have it

DEADBEAT – Photographer needed for photo shoot (Northern NJ)

Reply to: see below


“Creative Gigs” means jobs that are paid. This doesn’t mean, let me try to get someone to transport their equipment and lend there skills for nothing. Oh wait, you said you have an aspiring singing. Aspiring singers have to pay their dues just like everyone else. Once they are famous, I’m sure everyone will want to pay for their image “if” they get famous. Until then, stop being such a deadbeat and expect something for nothing. Their ad below.

I will not be compensation put I will promise you a very interesting subject with something great to add to your portfolio. The subject is an up-and-coming singer who will surely make it in the long run. I will prefer a photographer that has a model mayhem account or a website and their own equipment.

$100 for 6 hours of photography and at least 4 hours post processing???

That’s $10/hr

AND you want a quick turnaround AND you want someone with experience.

You’re gonna need to offer more than that cheapskate. Do you have any idea what professional camera gear costs? My basic rig to shoot an event is well over $10,000. You think I can afford that on $10/hr?

I agree with you 100%! Everybody wants shit for free these days; maybe I’ll head to Calumet tomorrow to see about some free gear in exchange for services or better yet, the possibility “future” paying customers… I’d be laughed out of the store!!! Just like we should start flagging these posts. If you need to build a portfolio, there’s other sites that can help you with that. Creative gigs (or any of the sub-catagories) here on Craig’s List should be for paying jobs only. My experience, equipment and most importantly my talent are all worth money. Oh and to the students; is your education free? Tyler, Art Institute, Antonelli, etc… Did they start offering free degrees, I guess seeing as how the teachers are offering their services for free I’m sure. Think about it before you jump on these posts thinking it’s going to be a great experience builder; it’s not! You’re just going to get screwed.

You’re still an idiot.

—————————————-

Need photographer for a quick shoot. Just need to have a professional or student that knows what they are doing must have light set up and a very creative mind to make the shoot good. This should only take up to 30-mins to 1 hour depending on how quick you can set everything up. just reply to the poster with some photos you have taken recently so I can determine the best person for this gig.

Thanks,

Tyler
