How much BS will you put up with? At the beginning of this year a fellow called and spoked to me about getting some BW portraits taken. He was interested in my vintage cameras, and wanted the portraits taken with medium or large format film, and for me to hand print them. We arranged several meetings which he never showed up for; in both cases I hung out for an hour waiting. We kept communicating by phone and email, and he decided that he didn't need to meet with me, he knew he wanted me to do the portraits, and we set up a time. About an hour before I was planning on leaving (he lives in another town, and we were to do the portraits at his house) he called and cancelled because he was ill. That's fine, I don't want to take someone's portrrait when they aren't feeling good. We set up another portrait session, which he cancelled on the day of the shoot, and then we set up a 3rd session, which he again cancelled on the day of. I didn't hear from him for several months, and then he called me Sunday asking if I could come up and take portraits of him and his daughter (in from out of town) this week. I am really busy right now (Sept and Oct are my busiest months), but I rescheduled some things, and we were to do it tonight. I asked for directions to his home, and he wanted to email them to me. Here it is, 4 hours before the shoot is supposed to start, and I haven't recieved an email or phone call so I don't know where I'm supposed to be. I have both emailed and called him with no reply. If he doesn't get ahold of me in the next couple of hours this will be the sixth time he's jerked me around. Another client emailed me today about getting some reprints done from a shoot I did last year. She put in an order 8 months ago, and it's been sitting on my shelf ever since. We have communicated via email on several occasions, but the check has never arrived. I offered to deliver them in person on several ocacsions. Today she has put in a different order. I emailed her back and told her I still had her first order, and it needs to be paid for before I'm making anymore reprints. Sheesh, I'm having a bad client day!
