TV Star Asks for Free Wedding Photos in Exchange for Exposure. Oops.

A UK reality TV star has rubbed the photography community the wrong way after it was revealed that he has been asking wedding photographers to shoot his upcoming wedding in exchange for social media exposure.

Jay Hutton, best known for starring in the British reality television series Tattoo Fixers, has reportedly been sending out the following request to wedding photographers through his representatives:

“Thank you for the interest in Jay Hutton Wedding, we have received a number of emails from some great photographers and I first want to outline the expectations of the agreement,” the email opens. So far so good. But then it becomes clear that instead of paying for the wedding with real money, Hutton is trying to pay by crediting the photos properly when sharing them on social media.

“The promotional value of social media is second to none and something we charge a great deal for,” the representative writes. “In exchange for photographing the day Jay will credit selected photos on social media to the photographer and their website.”

But that’s not all — there are some other “sweet perks” as well. First, the wedding photographer will have permission to share “preselected photos” on their own website, and travel and food expenses will be covered as well.
