The Hot-Tempered Photographer


I was recently told the story of one of my relatives that once ran a photography business. It happened that after delivering the finished product (albums, photo frames, etc) to his clients, he usually had a challenge getting his outstanding balance from them.

A client that owed him a balance of N20k would offer to pay 10 installments of N2k and my photographer “relative” will vehemently reject the offer. He would get so angry at the client that he would eventually tell the client not to bother paying the balance. He would repeat the same gesture to most of his clients.

This eventually became one of the main reasons why Relative Photography Studios is no longer in business. If you were in his shoes, how would you react to someone that owes you N20k and is offering to make 10 installments (or other seemingly outrageous offer) of N2k each?

    If I happened to be in your relatives shoes,I will be very strict with my client and let them know my stand concerning my balance,that’s where the issue of agreement comes into play…any client that knows that there’s a biding agreement will not wants anything that will tarnish there image.
