Jay Hutton, one of the tattoo artists helping people to cover up their embarrassing ink on UK reality show "Tattoo Fixers," has been mocked internet-wide, after email screenshots emerged of him trying to coax photographers into shooting his wedding in return for “credit” on “selected photos.”
A photographer alleges Hutton's representatives sent emails asking if anyone would be interested in the opportunity of photographing the reality star’s wedding day in April.
The payment came in the form of exposure across Hutton’s various social media accounts, where the lucky participant would receive “credit," on photos of Hutton's choice. “The promotional value of social media is second to none and something we charge a great deal for,” reads the email. On top of this, there will be food and travel expenses covered. What's more, the message also states that they’re seeking two photographers – or a photographer and their assistant.
The London-based photographer says screenshots of the exchange have, perhaps unsurprisingly, caused an uproar on social media. He criticized Hutton and his team’s attitude towards other peoples' careers, and voiced his concerns that somebody is going to take up the offer: “The loser though, is the person who is perhaps new to the business, and naive enough to believe that this is a really great opportunity.”
Have you ever photographed a wedding for Instagram tags before?
