I was dealing with this fitness Instructor who tried everything to avoid paying me for my photography or video editing services. He did however insist that I should pay him for training lessons.
Client: (when he first saw my price list) Oh so this is how much you will pay me to pose while you photograph me?
Me: No, this is how much I charge.
He kept trying to ask me questions about how he could do it himself, using the consultation as a free class and trying to haggle my price down. In all this, he tried to convince me that I should pay him to take his training lessons.
Me: Look you cannot expect from me to pay you for your services and at the same time expect that you can get my services for free + free lessons…
Client: I don’t understand what you mean. I am a fitness instructor I actually help people. All you do is take photos and add text to videos.
