Nothing annoys me more than when you schedule a day to shoot and the client flakes out. I used to think that it was worst when you are doing the photos as a favor and not charging anything. It’s just a wasted day, or afternoon, whatever.
Now that I started my 5511 Project I have been scheduling shoots where I am literally only making $5. I have come to find that it is actually worse when a client flakes on you when they scheduled a 5511 shoot.
What kind of deposit do you take on a $5 photo shoot?
What kind of deposit do you take on a free photo shoot?
What to do when someone flakes? I wait until they want to reschedule, then tell them why I don’t want to photograph them.
