I Hate it When Clients Meddle

“Shouldn’t you be using a close-up lens?   The product really needs to stand out!  And how about backlighting it, for a halo effect?  Tell the model to stop covering up the logo!  Now, I’ve had an idea for the background, just thinking out loud here…”

It’ll look good in your portfolio, Khalid I.

    Ohmygosh…i would love it if my boss was a Sugar Glider. I would be pinching her cheeks, and making cooing sounds every time she called me into her office.

  2. None of my clients look like that. 😦

    That is a very lucky shoulder.

    Adorable little critter! Even more adorable to me since I read one attacked Paris Hilton. That would have been such a Kodak moment.

  5. @georgina– love it! I concur. I really wish my boss was an adorable sugar glider!

  6. No I disagree I would’nt want my boss to be a Sugar Glider I’d never get anything done!

    I’d be going: Who’s a cute little boss. Who’s a itsy bitsy little cutie pie. Cootchi coochi coo to her all the time!

  7. Silly clients they hire you to do a job and then they want to micro manage it!

  8. Everyone likes a boy with a glider.

  9. Oh! How SWEET!

  10. I’ve often said that my life would be a lot easier if it weren’t for clients. 🙂 But if they were all as cute as this one, I would enjoy my job a lot more!!

  11. He’s just checking that the lens cap if off, this time! You have to sweat those details! B.E.F. here!!!!!!

  12. Huh. Who knew EOS actually stands for [squ]EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!! Optical System.

  13. hmmm…cute guy (I think), cute critter, sweet camera. I think I’m in love!

    Whatever it is that this good looking man is trying to take a pic of, is going to come out crooked because his eyes are tilted down to Mr. Cutie Sugar there… (I have to admit, I wouldn’t be able to keep my eyes off of him either!)

    I used to have two of these little guys! I miss them soooo much. 😦
    Look at the leetle pink nose! Those gumdrop shaped eyes! That perfect coat coloring!

  16. With those big eyes, this little guy is surely a photo expert. I’d listen to his advice anytime.

  17. HA! As a photographer, this rings a bell. I’m lucky to have most of my clients be wonderful, but there’s always that one job … It might be easier if the client was as cute as this sugar glider.

  18. Sugar glider – “Ahem, excuse me sir, but I’m ready for my close up”

  19. Awww, I wish *I* had a sugar glider to sit on my shoulder and micromanage for me.

  20. That fur looks like the softest thing EVAR!

  21. That critter is sooooo cute!

  23. I just wanted to tell the owner of that picture:
    THANK YOU! You take care of your glider! She’s gorgeous (I assume she, just because there’s no bald spot) I own 3 and they’re all happy and healthy, like this one. 🙂 I’m happy there is a GOOD representation of what a happy glider looks like here.
