I found this man on Craigslist.org, he advertised himself as a photographer who is interested in taking pictures for free to beef up his portfolio. I had a piano concert I was doing on June 19, 2010 and so I called him. He was very nice and pleasant on the phone, we arranged everything and he came to the concert and took multiple photos of me before, during and after. A lot of these photos were supposed to be publicity shots to be used to promote my career. Important stuff! After all the photos were taken he said he will give me the pictures in about two or three days. And then he simply disappeared. Doesn’t answer the phone, doesn’t return phone calls, doesn’t respond to e-mails. These photographs were extremely important to me as they chronicle one of my concert events. Now these pictures are gone! This man really screwed me over! Doesn’t matter if it was free. I would be willing to pay to have good photographs. But it is completely unconscionable to promise someone to take their pictures for something so important and then simply disappear. He told me he was building up his portfolio to become a professional photographer …. he must have been joking! How could someone become a professional photographer if he is screwing people over like this for no apparent reason! He wasn’t even responsible enough to give an explanation to his actions. Why would he do this to someone?
