Extreme Skin-Flint

Sometimes you can't make this stuff up. Our "Skin-flint" for today is one spa in the Palm Springs area.

You must:
1) Shoot stills and some short video
2) Competing against another photographer, who is female for "a range of insight", on the same day, using the same models
3) Have "great eyes"
4) Willing to work in exchange for trade only
5) If male, cannot use the trade alone
6) Must shoot quickly

Oh, and "...the photographer is able to work nude or top free and sarong as this is A nude shoot and the staff of -X- is also all female,top free or nude etc and there are Never any single men on the property."

Again - You MUST work nude, or (and I am presuming this applies only to women) top free and a sarong.

The ad, and link, after the jump.

(Continued after the Jump)


Until such time as the fountain of humor (which would actually be funny if some of the postings they had weren't serious) that is Craigslist ceases to publish these things, we will continue to have a chuckle at the ends to which some clients will go (and, yes, likely, some photographers too) to get work for free and cheap.

Here's the listing (until someone flags it):

Attention: No one needs to respond to this CL ad, as they have already chosen me for the project.

I've got my shirts on ebay, I'm loading the camera with some Kodacolor. I'm really glad that this recession thing is finally over.

Wonder if I can use the work to help "build the portfolio"?

Giulio Sciorio said...

I'll be there wearing a photo vest and only a photo vest.

keep up the work

Looks like this economy has a lot of people losing their shirts!

They appear to be offering an actual trade. This is far better than most of the CL ads about which I've seen people complain. If the $1200-equiv trade is not worth your time for whatever reason, then don't contact them.

"Here's the listing (until someone flags it)"

why would this get flagged?

Naturist said...

"You MUST work nude, or (and I am presuming this applies only to women) top free and a sarong."

Well, let's see, this is a shoot where the "big" part of the trade payment is a two-night VIP stay at a NUDE spa (I say this since the value of the model-released portfolio additions is up to interpretation). John, you appear to object to the requirement that the photographer who will be staying at this nude spa at a later date would be working in the attire of the spa. Are you a, or have you spoken with any, photographer who is also a nude spa enthusiast?

"5) If male, cannot use the trade alone"

Aside from the trade package being for two people, the ad says they are, "...seeking a female photographer for our annual spa resort shoot..." so this complaint of yours doesn't apply.

"2) Competing against another photographer, who is female for "a range of insight", on the same day, using the same models"

Is it really competing if you don't get more or less based on whether they use your pics or another photographer's? Also, what's wrong with having multiple (female) shooters and saying that it's for a range of insight? I don't understand this in the list of what appears to be complaints against the post.

"1) Shoot stills and some short video"

I read this as an "inclusive or" rather than an "and" as it applied to any individual photographer. A gigs post asking for a photographer to take photographs doesn't seem like anything out of the ordinary.

Fred said...

For craigslist this looks pretty good. You do a shoot, get paid in trade, get model released pics to boot. The ones that get to me are the ones where they are looking for a photographer ASAP and are offering no pay at all. Yeah, I'll hurry up and rush right over to do a shoot for your [website/cd cover/newsletter] free of charge, right.
