Dangers Job (Shooting Flowers)

I met one of my clients this morning to go out and get some wild flower shots for a program his organization is putting together for the school system. They want area scenic, flowers & wildlife shots and I didn't have any flower shots for them to choose from. This was a very scary dangerous trip. This is a copy of the E-mail I sent them. I am not using their real names to protect the QUILTY.

Mrs XXXX & Flower Guy I am very disappointed cuz I feel like I was mis-led about our agreement for shooting flowers. I think I deserve triple my pay because of the VERY dangerous situation Flower Guy put me in. We met around 10AM and headed for the pass to shoot flowers and a few trees as agreed to. Then Flower guy put me into a spot where Gigantic Killer Bees hang out. I should of know something was up cuz he stayed in the car with the windows rolled up. I was attacked by one of the Killer Bees and the only reason I made it out alive is because I am so alert and quick I dodged his first attack and then quickly diverted his attention to a flower. So if we are to continue this flower shooting thing I need triple the pay we agreed ed to and expense money to cover my rifle, shotgun and ammo.

I am sure Flower Guy is going to deny this but I have proof.

P.S. I should mention these folks are not only clients but friends.

I do hope that your friendswere ignorant of the situation theywere in or the situation they had put you in. No matter how, itwas a dangerous duty and protective measures should have been taken before going ahead with the shooting. On top of that, dangerous duty allowance should have been provided as a compensation for the risk that you had gone through. Peter
