I came across an interesting video today by Gary Fong that has been circulating the wedding photography world recently. In it, he talks about a wedding photographer, Nelson Tang, who receives a letter from a client demanding his $3,800 fee back plus $15,000 under threat of a $300k lawsuit.
According to Gary Fong, who says to have seen the photos, the photographer did a ”freaking great job.” Furthermore, the couple put a thousand of them on Facebook where they got praises from their Facebook friends.
The client, who is also a lawyer, goes as far as to threaten the photographer’s livelihood. He even threatens to “hire a person who specializes in search engine optimization” and “blog extensively.”
1) Always have a written contract
2) Never deliver all of the RAW files.
