Welcome to the forum!

As an adjunct to the Tangents blog, the intention with this forum is to answer any questions, and allow a diverse discussion of topics related photography. With that, see it as an open invitation to just climb in and start threads and to respond to any threads.

Just. Ridiculous.

I had to share this Thumbtack request I just received. I'm not a wedding photographer. I've seen some real beauts for request during 3 years on Thumbtack, but I just just couldn't believe this one. And, she included about 16 photos of exactly what kind of photos she wanted!

    I would not even open my camera bag for that price Dave.

    Plain moronic would be more like it, not in touch with the real world that's for damn sure.

    Trev - I wish I could see how many bids she got, but I can't do that unless I bid. I don't think so.

    My wife says for that price we will send our 11-year-old granddaughter with her iPhone.
  • Unfortunately this is nothing new. I have received many requests like this in the past. (not on that site though)  I very politely decline and move on.   I shake my head in private and  I put all my efforts in clients that appreciate what I do and value the service I provide. A wise car salesman once told me and I quote "There is an ass for every seat!" I have carried that wisdom to the photographic world and it could not be any truer. With that said. I am sure they found someone willing to photograph their event. Just not me:)
