Re: What comes first - payment or retouching?

If you are working with the agencies, you will wait 30 - 90 days for payment. This has always been the way. If you are working with small tin pot places, then yes, you will get paid on delivery or beforehand.

But remember, the agencies are where the big bucks are, sure you wait for payment, but you will be getting between $125 - $200 an hour. Not $10 an image! Go figure!

In that case a formal legal agreement is the absolute minimum (though if your client is located in another country, this can carry additional costs).

I always get paid as soon as the proofs (watermaked image) are approved.

Proof (watermarked image) Err? That makes no sense, define proof?

Jeff, sorry if I'm making any confustion by the word "Proof", I mean to say - when I finish the retouch and send it to client with the watermark on it and client approved that he is happy with the work I did, he gets me paid. I think It's clear now.
