I'm not an event photographer and mainly do live bands and promo shoots. Recently a friend asked me to help out at an event for his friend as the photographer they had booked pulled out.
I'm sure I've read similar situations so sorry if this sounds familiar.
So my brief was just take pictures of people interacting, do some posed shots and take pictures of the guests having fun ( it was a fundraiser for a charity, me fee was very low as this was a favour for a friend.)
So I took 600 odd shots and edited it down to 60 deliverables which covered the brief. The client then emailed me asking if there were any other pictures and I told her that there might be a few but I was pretty sure that all the usable shots were in my final edit. All good until today where she has asked for the 600 shots I took
I'm thinking I should maybe explain that in lots of the candid shots focus was off, people looked odd ( eyes closed or strange expressions etc ) and people walked into shots etc. As well as few where my flash didn't fire etc etc.
She has offered to pay extra, but at the rate the original fee was this wouldn't be much at all.
I've read where wedding photogs get demands for all the shots but has this ever happened with event photogs and if so how do you handle this kind of request?
Further info. I created a flickr gallery and supplied digital copies direct to the client both as full sized and also re sized for web versions too. Also I plan on maybe using Zenfolio or something similar so guests can get prints made if they wish.
