Bad Experience at Werkz Photography

Posted by icyelite on March 6, 2009

I had a bad experience with Werkz Photography. Not sure whether it is the day that I had chose or there are always alot of people at Werkz. It was a rush, unprofessional experience. When I visited Werkz, its still at the old place near Sim Lim Square. Now they had shifted to near Lavender Mrt station.

The day when I went to Werkz, there are alot of people queuing to take their graduation potraits with their family too. I was given a small corner to put on my graduation gown with my family, everyone sharing a small mirror. I wanted to slowly wear my grad gown but the person was rushing me. I felt that my graduation gown was still in a mess but he says it looks ok. In actual fact, my gown seems to be slouching behind and my white top is in a mess. Its when I keep complaining to him that he approach to help me tidy up my clothes. When I’m done, the guy asked me to faster go in to take the photo shoot while he went to help the rest of my family members.

When shooting, the photographers arranged my clothes again and tell me how I should pose myself. For the first few single potraits, I was similing happily but later the photographers told me not to smile too much as its showing too much of my teeth which they felt that its not nice.

After single portrait, I’m still waiting for my brother to had his graduation found and wore properly. So the photographers asked me to take picture with my parents first, whether I will want to purchase the picture later is my choice.

Werkz promised me that there will be Wollongong’s graduation gown. When we reached there, they did not prepare it in advance. They searched for it last minute. Initially, they just gave another color graduation gown to my brother. My brother was pissed off when Werkz had promised me and they told my brother its okay to wear different color, they will do photoshop later. They had no choice, so they went to look for it again. Finally, my brother got his graduation found and wore and we are ready for family potraits. Last year, when we took our family potrait at Gloria Studio, the old couples were so friendly and they made everyone smile, alot of shots were taken. Gloria makes sure everyone is smiling by having some jokes, every single shot, they arranged our clothes too.

This time, Werkz did not put in the effort to make everyone smile happily. The result of the family portrait is just a rush and bad photo taking session with lots of photo editing done. I would say that their photo editing is superb and “superb”. They did so much editing that I felt my mum was drawn out rather than looking natural.

    I just wonder why Werkz had the sole right to be the official photographer for all the university graduates. Does SMU collect special commission from them? Its a ripped off! They charge by the session and you only can pick one session photo and no soft copy given. What a rip-off. Why can the graduates go to their own photographers? Its like daylight robbery.

    Agree… THEY SUXS… arrogant service with ‘I can’t be bothered, take it of leave it’ attitude.

    PLUS, which fucking photography studio MOUNT your photo on wooden BOARDS? Only WERKZ photography.

    Photographers were kind but SERVICE STAFF suxs. After sales service is WORST. University of Newcastle shouldn’t sign a contract with them.

    ALL UNIs should not EVEN consider them as their biz partners.

    SCREW them

    I had the same unpleasant experience with them 4 years ago when i had my Masters Graduation. As for my PhD graduation this year, i make sure that they will not get any business from me. On top of that, i make sure my friends who are at the same batch also do so. I related all my unpleasant experiences with them and this probably cost them much lost in their business from my faculty.
