In LATE CLIENT by pinnerphotography / April 25, 2014 / 2 Comments

Late Client

I don’t know about you guys but I am not to impressed by a client who turns up to their
appointment 40min late without as much as a phone call to explain.
People these days don’t think much of booking you and just not turning up
or as in this instance turning up late. What do you do?

Four options
1: You charge them for the time wasted (not happy)
2: Tell them they have 20min of their shoot left (not happy)
3: You tell them you have another booking in 20min (not happy)
4: You just let it go and let them think it is acceptable to do this (happy)

But no I deserve to be happy too

I chose option 2 because I did have another appointment and I did
explain if the client would like to book another hour in the studio
and turn up on time or at least phone if there is a problem
all I got back was a very blank stare (not happy)
Please leave a comment below

You will be glad to hear the next shoot went very well
with a lovely family of 6 and they had a great time

Below are some pictures, I was playing with flash
whilst waiting for the late clients to arrive.

In BUSY TWO WEEKS by pinnerphotography / April 15, 2014 / 0 Comments

Hi Guys sorry for the quiet spell. I have had a very busy two weeks.
I have been working on a commercial shoot for an engineering company,
they are updating their web-site and having a new brochure produced.
I had the MD driving me around some of the sites they have worked on
and are still working on.

I found it very interesting looking at all the different types of projects
they are working on, many of the projects have used something like 200 tons of steel,
Very impressive to see. The buildings in and around London are amazing to see ,
it was also the first time I had visited Ascot race track.

The MD also took me on a tour of their workshop
and showed me the machines used to work on these
very large steels, they run the machines 24/7 360 days wow!
The head office of this company are also very impressive
with a beautiful feature staircase made of highly polished steel and glass.

I am just catching up with the back log of Studio portrait sessions,
so it is head down for me for the next week or so.
Hope all is good in your world, wherever that maybe.
