As some have already said, I should probably just shut my mouth, take the deal, create some amazing images and enjoy the trip.
you'll definitely be able to create some amazing images, but i'm not sure how much you will "enjoy the trip". sure you'll get to see some new sites, but you'll be working, you know? you'll want to stay at least 2-3 nights just to cover the job, that's not really even sight-seeing imho. if you've never been there, i don't think you can't see a whole hell of a lot playing tourist in just a day or two after the event. but that's not to say it wouldn't be worth it, i loved rome (was there 4+months), but this would be a hard decision for me too.
it was good that you compared ticket prices to your rates too btw, puts it into perspective.
the album at cost makes it a harder sell personally. what is "at cost" anyway to him?
a-the cost to cover just the printing and not the effort that goes into it? b-"at cost" to me means, my hours and direct costs, but no profit.
sounds like he wants "a" which makes the whole trip cost you a lot of time/money.
just some of my thoughts, are you single btw? if i was single, this choice would be easier for me!
