PostingHow often you client's requirement is lower then what you can offer.
Maybe this is just my local deal issues, I am based in Hong Kong and China.
Everyday my client tell me that they have a very little budget.
This result ...
I can't build the set as I want... rent / buy the props as I want ... finally shoot with just seamless paper.
I can't shoot as the crew I like to work with... sometime even cut the assistant( they use their staff instead).
The worse case is try to use their staff as model for fashion / shoes shoot (amazing idea) ... haha. then offer 300US$ for one day studio catalog shoot but require 900 jpegs...
How do you deal with such case? Yes I know how to say NO to my bread and butter but surely I need it.
