Our job would be great if it wasn't for the clients. Here are the 4 most annoying things that clients regularly ask me. I am sure most of you can relate to these.
One of the main reasons people come and go from the profession of photography is having to deal with difficult or downright ridiculous clients. Thankfully, after the first few years of being a pro you have heard and learnt how to deal with pretty much every ridiculous request that their is.
In this video I go over the 4 most annoying things that photography clients have asked me. However, what I didn't include was my first ever ridiculous request and which ones would be red flags for working with someone. During one of my first weddings that I shot a client asked if I could Photoshop one of the candid shots I took to make her Grandma be facing the camera rather than away from it.
Clients wont ever stop being difficult to work with, but it usually comes down to either miss communications or needing to educate or set budget expectations of the client. Thankfully, I now see these requests as red flags or the as a client who might need a bit more information on how a shoot works before we go any further.
