THE arrogant TROLL, so-called, professionals who charge an arm and a leg for marginal skills is equally sickening. THIS GUY HAS GOT NOTHING BETTER TO DO THAN FLAG OR MAKE A COMMENT ON ANY AD THAT DOESN"T SUIT HIS TASTE ...
QUIT SCREWING WITH PEOPLES AD'S ..... and find a REAL JOB !
My 2 cents...........................
The flip side to this is the number of photographers who will take any small job and UPSELL it to death. You tell them exactly what you need and they proceed to tell you that you need X, Y and Z more for $$$ more.
While the number of people seeking freebies and underpaying professionals is sickening, the number of arrogant, so-called, professionals who charge an arm and a leg for marginal skills is equally sickening.
I hate to burst your bubble, but you're looking for a SKILLED photographer with $3,000-$5,000 worth of professional equipment, to take photos in an incredibly low light enviroment of quickly moving subjects with no flash, AND to give you all the photo files for ONLY $20/hour? I hope getting a photographer for your event isn't important to you, because you certainly won't get even a mediocre photographer, let alone what you're looking for.
Photographers are skilled professionals, not cheap labor. If you want a good photographer you're going to have to fork out the money for it. Investing in good equipment isn't cheap, and the value of experience is worth far more than $20/hour. If you don't have the money to pay a reasonable wage, then start lowering your standards.
