okay i just checked back on this thread.

She had never been involved with the club before, and Myself and my family has been heavily invovled since it began, (The Pony Club).

I only covered my costs and donated the rest of the money back towards the Branch of the Pony club known as cheshire hunt south, All of the people the purchased photos where made aware of this and where 100% supportive. Because we are in the UK there are a lot of "politics" within a club.

She has never been asked back and never will be!! and I have attended many many more of their events.

The Pro Tog was out of order in the way that she handled the situation and her over-all attitude.

Rather amusingly she ended up with over 1000 photos on a hard to use photo gallery website, and most of the parents dont even live in areas with fast internet!

. . .after 2-3 phone calls to the state tax office. well they are no longer around)

Wow - that's harsh.


"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".

If the OP only made £300 ish from a week long event I can't see why a professional would want to be there.

Damn, I'd be expecting to make that in under a couple of hours at a decent event.

Obviously this was a labour of love.

I was there for two days.

Makes perfect sense to me. Pro's need to do business differently if they want to eat. Why should cheats rule the market? Hmm, wonder if all those people sporting L glass now a days have paid sales tax on that mail order/Internet purchase like their supposed to? Time to "Change it up"

Okay so the event is coming up again - this year I have a contract of exclusivity and I am not charging for the shots, I am being paid a fixed ammount and providing a pack of photographs for every participant. The other photographer is no longer a photographer, and she sent me an email with her appologies saying that she was unproffesional. i admit that I didn't handle the situation very well but we are on good terms now.

Sounds like the outcome is favourable. Remember though that you need to declare all monies earned to the tax office, even if you are a student. You may be exempt from paying tax, but earning must still must be declared. Anyone who is charging money for photographic services should have an awareness of tax, personal indemnity insurance, and equipment insurance issues.

I am not really selling the photos, people pay to enter the event which is a week long, and they get a pack of photographs of them, the organiser will cover my printing costs and petrol to get there ect but I am doing it for free this time i have decided.

I have a few friends who will be doing it and my sister is so I don't really want to proffit from it.


I also had the other photographer contact me saying did I want to work for her during the event and she seemed quite annoyed that she couldnt't be there again.

So, which is it? Are you getting paid a fixed amount or doing it for free? Here in the US, when I get paid for jobs, I keep records and report that income at the end of the year.. you know, so people won't call the 'tax police' on me to get me shut down.
