These are quotes from work-related emails where you can see professional qualities and ethic of photographer Jace Rivers. This might help you make a decision when you are considering working for / with this individual.


NOTE:

Communication stopped here and Jace Rivers never responded to the question and did not logically explain why he did not pay for all work. Attached are screens of unpaid additions to the website, which Jace Rivers decided not to use and not to pay for.




EMAIL MESSAGE THREADS:



No the payment is not complete and the matter is not closed. Please respond to this email from Sept 13th that detailed and outlined what you owe me and my programmer:

Subject: www.jacerivers.com / the remaining balance...



Hi Jace


- There was an initial miscommunication about the video capability per our emails from June 9th and consequently this feature was never used.

video functionality was programmed based on your request and approved estimate - it does not matter if it was used or not : Attachment 1







- After an initial review of the functionality, the Lightbox feature was removed and not used on the site.

lightbox was estimated and programmed  after your request and is part of your website. It can be turned on or off from the CMS. There was a lot of work involved in programming lightbox: Attachment 2






- After many rounds back and forth on issues concerning the Photoproofs service, I had to seek out an alternate service so this feature was removed and remained unused.

If you are not happy with photo-proofs, I will not charge you even though it was installed and used on your server.



- After an initial review of the functionality, the "dimming non-active photos" feature was never incorporated into the site.

it was programmed and we need to charge for performed work even if you ask to remove programmed part or the website. For example if you asked us to take the whole website down, we would still invoice you for the whole website because the work was done. Does this make sense?


Since these items were either not incorporated into the site or removed from the building of site, I have not included their cost into the balance. I have transferred the total remaining balance owed of $1870.00 into your account today. Thanks.

Please include back all parts that were programmed. I payed my programmer for working on these parts and it is not fair if I pay myself for website components which you no longer want. I can make an exception for photo-proofs which we had as a product and did not program for you only.





I can discount these parts:


Video capability - $400 - I can discount to $300

Lightbox - $500 - I can discount to $375




Also, I did not receive hosting payments yet but I can wait till Jan 1, 2012.



"

A list of current outstanding changes that I need to make ASAP:

- changing the background and favorites badges in the Proofs system. DONE

- adding the video capability to jacerivers.com  DONE 

- adding the lightbox feature to jacerivers.com  DONE

No I did not receive responce the my last email. We generally do not give source files to the clients unless we negotiate otherwiese. We never give clients source files before complete project payment. 

I also consider this project closed from our side but I did not receive payment all the changes we made and for 2011 hosting. There is probably no reason to discuss and further business but we need to discuss old business - unpaid invoice #331.

Did you get my previous email? I've outlined the situation in detail as well as the charges that I have paid for. Even though I never received any files from you, I consider this project, and payment for it, closed. I've had to seek other hosting options and site design services as a result, therefore there is no need for any further business between us. Best of luck to you, Arseni.
