Aaron K

Aaron K is such a talented photographer and has such an interesting background of how he became a photographer. He didn't start of with photography, he started of with something else but because there was no space for that degree he wanted he had to choose something else. So he had a few options and he chose photography because he thought it'll be easy, all you need to do is click a button and you've got a photo.

Aaron K is a fashion/beauty, commercial photographer. He uses the studio a lot, that's something I don't use much.

Aaron K is strongly involved in the AIPA website, and I found this website after having a knock down with someone when I took photos for their hair academy.

What had happened is I agreed to take photos for their show as they needed photos for their portfolios. So I agreed to do so. The lighting was terrible at the runway so we ended up just doing portraits in their studio with natural lighting.
After editing the photos and wanting to hand them in, they asked for the original files with no edit. So I then said okay but gave them in JPEGS and then they asked for my RAW files. I know as a photographer you shouldn't give out RAW files as they can change the photo, sell the photo, use it in places with no credits of your name. Things didn't go well and the academy tutor was saying some harsh things towards my communication.

So to not get into the same mess as I did I went through the AIPA website and took some ideas of contracts and did my own little.
