Before you post anything on Facebook, you should always think about it. Think about what you say, who it will hurt, and what impact it may have on you and your career. Here is an instant when a photographer just did not think before she reacted.
Katrina Ortiz had hired Desiree Genera to take some pictures of her while she was pregnant. The shoot went well, and they agreed a date when the pictures would be ready. So far, so good.
Things started to go wrong when Katrina asked (on the expected date) if her pictures were ready. It was then that Desiree let her mouth run away from her, posting that Katrina was rushing her. She went even further to record a very nasty video calling the expectant mom names such as ‘fat thighs’, and made comments about her stretch marks, cellulite and the wig.
Now, any other photographer worth his salt will tell you that there are things that you say, and then there are things that you definitely do not say, no matter what you feel about your client. Insulting pregnant ladies is one of those things.
It begs the question that if she really was that busy, when did she find the time to record the video? Would she not have been better just with a quick answer and then press on with her busy workload?
People went so far as to dig up dirt on the photographer about shoots which she had done, that they considered unprofessional. It seems that she has a history of letting her mouth get the better of her on more than one occasion.
This comes very close to a case of cyberbullying, and one viewer even suggested Katrina sue the photographer for being unprofessional. One thing is sure, her business has most certainly suffered because of her big mouth.
