This is a joke right?
This is a Craigslist ad in search of a wedding photographer
"Would love to give a chance to a Photographer & Videographer (DeKalb/Sycamore)
We are looking to work with art students who would like to take the opportunity to expand their portfolio by doing engagement photo sessions and cinematography as a save the date session with us. You don't have to be able to do both but we need one of each for sure. This is a non paying job initially for the engagement portion. If you do a satisfactory job and we want to go with that style concept you choose then we can work with you again for our wedding photos and video and pay you but only if you are one of the selected for our wedding day.
Rights belong to us you will have to sign a release form, with the raw copies of all photo and video upfront, approved photos are uploaded to your website. You create more value to yourself and portfolio. We both mutually benefit! Thank You!"
$140 plus a meal for a 2 hour engagement shoot and 6-8 hours wedding shoot, 10 hours before the post processing! BE STILL MY BEATING HEART!!! ADD 2 weeks of post processing and you are over 90 hours of time and dedication, 90 hours divided by $140 comes out to a whopping $1.55 per hour!!!! OMG! Where do I sign up? It's amazing how under appreciated photographers are especially when charged to capture one of the most important days of their life. I mean seriously, how much dedication and attention to detail do your really expect from me when you're paying me a meal and $1.55 an hour? Would you work for a $1.55 an hour? Then to make it so bad, this ad is written as though they're doing the photographer a great favor. And to demand the full rights to the picture?!? You can't be serious! This ad is too funny and pathetic. If this is the value you put on memories of your wedding and marriage you should honestly forget the photographer because you probably won't be married long.
