YES I have an event on 4-1-2011 with about 200 people, but I can only pay about $350.
Cameras will be put at every table so all I need you to do is advise each table what to do and how to use them.
There will be plenty of food and drinks and good communication skills are mandatory.
Any mention and links of our event would be appreciated but not necessary and we might consider mentioning your info or link if we think you are worth it..
Please let me know if you are available and I can send you additional details.

I wonder if the event date should be tipping me off to anything?

I am an experienced photographer looking for $250 for an evening event, from 5:30 - 7:30 or so. Unfortunately I won't be able to take any photos but I am able to schmooze and eat appetizers. I'll also share the link to your non-profit organization on my website and tell all my friends and family how great your organization is. Perhaps they will donate money?

Please let me know if this sounds like a reasonable offer?

Sincerely,

A Pro Photographer

->> I wonder if the caterers were asked to donate their food and time. Maybe something like, "We can't pay you for your food and services, but we'll give you a free photo and put up a link to your business's website to let everyone know how good your food is. Maybe you'll be able to get a paying client that way."
