Friday Funny: Sh*t Clients Say To Photographers

By Hanssie on January 8th 2016

A few years ago, a series of parody videos called ‘Sh*t People Say,’ humorously poked fun of stereotypes, cliches, and mannerisms of various groups of people. It began as a video series called, Sh*t Girls Say, and it quickly became wildly popular with people making their own sh*t people said videos

To quote the Simpsons, “It’s funny because it’s true.” Whatever group(s) you identified with, you’d be able to recognize the cliches in any number of the videos and have a good chuckle. My personal favorites, were the original Sh*t Girls Say, Sh*t Photographers Say, and Sh*t Asian Moms Say. (Just a note: if you’re easily offended, you might not like these videos).

Anyway, DigitalRev is bringing back the Sh*t People Say series with their latest video, ‘Sh*t Clients Say To Photographers.’ From “Can you Photoshop my face…” to “We can’t pay you but we can give you exposure,” I am sure you’ll recognize a few of these phrases as having been said to you at one time or another during your photography career. And what else can you do but laugh?

Because it’s Friday and it’s finally almost the weekend (did this week just drag on for you?!), here are a few of my favorite Friday Funnies to keep you entertained:

    Client: “Why am I not in the picture?”
    Me: “Because you weren’t there when we did the shoot.”
    Client: “Oh wasn’t I…? I must have been somewhere else…”

    Client: “Why are your fine art prints so expensive – it’s just a piece of paper.”

    Client: “Can you photoshop this person out so we can see behind her…”

    Client: “Come on, everyone knows you don’t all these lights and everything. You can just do it in post production…’

    Client: “Why do you need all these lights – can’t you just make it look nice”
    Me: “Because I don’t have a “NICE” button.

    Client: “We’d like 24 half hour sessions in this 7 hour day”
    Me: “I don’t think that works mathematically”
    Client” “Don’t worry – we’ll schedule it…”

    Client: “How long to set up?
    Me” “About 30 minutes”
    Client to their client: “It takes about 10 minutes to set up.”

    … and most of these from art directors… ahem…!
