What if the client is not paying and you were not hired, but obligated because of family? Appreciate the feedback, but does not appear you read any details.

Seems more like they've asked you to come along with your camera to do X and you just want to rock up and do Y.

If a family member asks you to help out in the garden by cutting the grass... and you rock up and can't be bothered to cut the grass and plant some trees instead because that is what you wanted to do... have you helped them out?

Honestly, I don't want to do Y. I just want out.

I'm not arguing, though. For various reasons, I think in-laws are the toughest people to work with. I don't have to go into it all. If you really want, PM me. Maybe your experience is different. Thanks, everyone.


Taking photos with a fancy camera does not make me a photographer.

In that case just tell them you can't do it. Simple.
