A customer (an international teaching hospital in Toronto) called me just now for a last-minute shoot (an award ceremony by the Board of Directors). Unfortunately, with a client on his way, I could not take the job.
So I called every photographer I knew in and around Toronto. Amazingly, none but two answered: most were still asleep. Few of the others called back.
The fact that no photographer was able to take a last-minute job did not surprise me. The fact most were unable to be reached, did. For those of you who want to be photographers, great news: you can get up after 9AM!
Oh and if you were not on my call list it is because I do not have your number.
The shot? It fell through, they decided without a photographer, no ceremony.
That’s quite sad actually. No photographer … no ceremony =[
Do you think they’d go forward with a “beginner” like me? or were you looking for more experienced photographers?
I’ve been spending a lot of money on lenses, camera, accessories etc. but it would be nice to get it back somehow.
Indeed, sad. Anyone who can take a well-composed picture with bounce flash would have been welcome, I suspect.
I hope you still remember me… I enjoy reading your blog very much. and looking forward
to call me next time! I will send you my cell number.
Got it, and of course I remember you – and next time you’re on my list!
