Today I was shocked! I received a bill from Serbia for GPRS data transfer. I was commissioned by Corriera dela Sera to do portraits of Serbian paramilitary group and I was sending pictures by GPRS. I received two bills. One 365 EUR was from Simobil second 1300 EUR was from Serbian mobile operator. I received Slovenian bill in December and Serbian bill only today. First bill was refunded by Corriera della Sera and we7re still working so solve the issue of the second bill.

What can I say….

Last week I sold a print from my exhibition and did a commissioned portrait for Financial Times via Panos Pictures and I earned about the same amount of the second bill. Easy come, easy go. As long as I’m healthy I’ll make enough money for me and my family.

Oh… In few weeks I’ll start to train Shaolin Kung Fu. I met Milan Kapetan, who is teaching Shaolin in London’s Shaolin temple. I’m visiting fitness to strengthen my quadriceps and stabilize my twice operated knee.

  1. You need to make sure your contracts include T&E when you are hired for such tasks.

  2. Srbija je zelo draga za GPRS kot tudi za klicanje kot taksno. Povej, zakaj nisi raje posiljal iz kakega Cyberja fotografij?

  3. B5 je dokaz, da je v Srbiji (med letovanjem, ali obiski) bolje kupiti predplačniško (“mobi”) kartico, saj ti po kavbojsko (ob)računi stroškov za gostovanje v njihovem omrežju v Podalpje prihajajo tudi po več mesecev.

  5. glede pogodbe so me poklicali v petek, v nedeljo pa sem bil že tam. Nenazadnje splo nirečeno, da ne bodo plačali teh stroškov. So fejst ljudje.

    Mare, pa ima prav glede roaming-a. Nisem mogel pošiljat, ker em cel dan delal, ponoči pa pošiljal.

  7. Hej!
    Se sploh nisem začudil ob zadnji novici glede shaolin Kung Fuja. To se že dolgo vidi v tvojih udarnih fotkah. To si ti.
    Ajme.

  15. ah….
    ko boš na asajmantu, za tri dni, prevozil tisoč kilometrov, fotkal, urejal, prevajal, lobiral, pa boš lahko modroval. Moj čas za urejanje in pošiljanje fotografij je bil med 22. in 4. zjutraj – seveda v budnem stanju!

    No, saj plačajo odlično in bom v vsakem primeru v plusu.

  16. […] must admit it’s different when you talk empty words or when you have a bill of 1300 EUR to pay (for which I was not suppose to pay and it got even worse, but I’ll not blog about it!!!) and […]
