I answered to an ad looking for event photographers advertising $200 per gig. That’s pretty low for me but I could use the extra cash here and there so I emailed them my portfolio.

Client: We took a look at your work and really liked what we saw here is what we are looking for …

The lack of sentence and paragraph structure in the email was a red flag, but I decided to entertain it anyway.

Me: Okay that’s great, so what is the next step in getting started with you?

Client: We have many connections to promoters throughout the city. I will send you to their events to shoot. The only problem is they don’t pay the photographers, but together we can change that!

Me: So are you telling me there is no payment for these events? You advertised $200 per gig. Why would you not just say this was an internship if there wasn’t going to be any payment? I don’t understand, is this a paying position or isn’t it?

No response to this email initially, so I followed up with them again a bit annoyed this time.

Client: Some events will, some won’t. Most of them won’t, but we’re working on changing that.

Me: Thank you for wasting my time.

I got no time for your revolution, man.
