Photographers have to deal with a lot of annoying things, whether from clients, other photographers, online trolls, or others. What is it that annoys you? If you need a bit of catharsis, this video should do you a bit of good.
Coming to you from Justin Mott, this great video features him discussing things people say that are particularly annoying to hear as a photographer. We all deal with this, but everyone has one or two things that particularly get on their nerves. The one that always annoys me is being pestered for images well before the agreed-upon delivery date. From a client's perspective, I understand the excitement of receiving images, and I certainly do not mind a bit of that, but when it turns to pestering, then I think it crosses a line. I have found a bit of education after the shoot helps a lot. A lot of clients simply do not understand how much time and effort goes into post-processing, instead assuming we just click a shutter and we're done. Talking them through the process a bit helps them to better understand why there's a waiting period and also helps them better appreciate why things cost what they do. Check out the video above for what annoys Mott (jump to 3:51 for the beginning of the rant).
