8 to 12 pics is plenty for a grass cut. I'd tell them $40 per cut plus $1.00 per picture. 120 is ridiculous.

I take a lot of pictures of every task I complete - Why not, they're cheap right? Having said that, WTH do they want 120 pics of?? There isn't 120 pics in a grass cut! My standard formula of GC pics adds up to 40-45, and that's way more than plenty to document the event.

120?!? That's got to include things like sharpness of the mower blades, fuel in the gas tank, sweat on your brow, etc.

Iíve already told you more than I know.

Run fast, very fast. If they want 120 for a GC, they're going to want 1,200 for an actual order. On my camera, time delay between flashes is about 7 seconds. 1,200x7=8,400 seconds or 140 minutes...that's over 2 hours BEFORE YOU EVEN START DOING ANY WORK! This industry...so sad.

I Agree with MCPEPPER - Run away and don't look back. This business used to be great. NOT ANYMORE.
