WARNING!: Miguel Mayo

Recommended Posts

WTF!!!!!!!! OMG!! I have a shoot sheduled with him at the end of the month. HE sent me a pm saying that he was doing FREE engagement shoots in LA for the month of MAy, so i said what the hell, okay. He said that I would get all of the negatives and a copy of the CD for free also. I didn't know that he was aka BDW Stalker. Should i be concerned?

By sending you that PM he was blatently going against the rules we have set on this forum for vendors. He was banned, and then tried to join again under a different name, and did the same thing. He was banned again. He's obviously very sneaky, dishonest, and desperate (that's a word I'd personally use anyway) for work. If you still choose to use him - that's up to you!

I wouldn't do it. I saw his free engagement shots on his website & they were not impressive. I also wouldn't trust him that they are free. As shady as he seems it's not worth it.

You could just have a friend take your picture in LA & get free shots that will probably be better.

OK here at work we have a Waji's (mini Uwajimaya!) and they have a spam, eggs and rice breakfast special that is sooo good! But they salt their eggs, I hate when restaurants pre-salt eggs. I like to do it myself. But SPAM now makes these little tear-top packs without all the gross gel stuff, and the low-sodium one is really good! I love to cut it up and put it in breakfast burritos or omelets. Yum!

PS Miguel Mayo sound like a total loser creep. I'm so glad he didn't PM me!

There is no way I am using him for my wedding pics, but since he had offered a free engagement session, I thought that would be okay. I have mixed feelings about this now. If I do use him for the free shoot, i will draw up a contact to guarantee that I will get my pictures.......off to check out his website again. Here is the most recent shoot that i did with a PROFESSIONAL photographer. Our pics are the first 5 on the page:

Your recent pics are so great I don't think it's worth your time. Look at the part (i think in his blog) where he shows samples of the free sessions.

marsha,
those engagement pics are GORGEOUS!!
why waste your time with someone whose behavior has been so sketchy (and desperate!) - esp when you already have such beautiful photos!

thanks so much Autum!!! His pictures would just serve as "backup". There is NO WAY that I'm ditching my REAL photographer for him. She is shooting my wedding in Jamaica as well. She's great! I love your work also!
