This happened to me regularly till not long ago. Imagine the following scenario:
A client hires me for shooting. Everything is agreed on and I’d get a phone call two days before the shoot and the client would ask: Can we have a break in between the shooting because the second interviewee isn’t ready till two hours after the first one is finished. We’ll pay you for your time but we don’t want to pay for the break in between.
Man, I hate those situations. What should you do? Do you just give in, lose money, and set yourself up for this kind of headache in the future? Or do you fight for your rights and put your relationship with the client into danger? What a catch 22. What can you do in order to prevent those situations that can cost you lots of money, or possibly a client?
