In 2010 I was taking some photos at a beauty pageant, Miss Toronto Tourism with my professional camera for Bloor News. The organizers and contestants were so pleased with the results, they hired me as their official photographer for the next 7 years. Over twenty five girls per year had videos and pictures taken for the annual event. I was never actually paid in full. Typically I would get $10 to cover parking and drink on the house, and more promises of future payment. My relationship with the owner ended when she sold the idea to a new person and still didn’t bother paying my fees.
