Don’t know if anyone else out there has any type of attachment to their clients, but I sure do.
What I mean is, let’s say I do a shoot for a couple last year. Well this year I find out that they did a shoot through another photographer.
My first reaction is always, “WTF! What happened to us? I thought I was yours and you were mine? Did those 3 hours that we spent in the Dallas Aboretum mean nothing to you?”
I mean the bond between a photographer and the client should be sacred. If anything it should be just as special as a marriage.
You did pay me to be with you. I didn’t come cheap. And you should continue paying me even when I’m old, ugly, and undesirable. That’s what it means to be faithful.
What did I do to make you leave me for someone else?
Is it because I wasn’t delivering the goods?
What does he/she have that I don’t have?
(I refuse to acknowledge or mention the other person who just came and stole you away from me.)
I wonder if anyone else feels this way.
Do make-up artist get jealous when their clients leave them for another make-up artist?
Is that called professional cheating?
There should be some kind a pre-nuptial agreement, that says that the client has to like us even when they don’t.
That would solve all the problems in this world.
