This morning, I received a phone call saying I was let go as photographer for Beacham Nightclub. As I say Beacham, this includes Aero, The Patio, The Social and 64 North. At the bottom of this blog post, the reader will see the offending photo that got me fired.
Last Saturday, I posted the photo on Facebook. After that, I tagged someone in the photo. Then, that person shared the image on his Facebook page.
I guess that’s when Beacham managers or whomever saw the photo.
Later that day, I received a phone call to take it down. I did as told.
After that, I thought things were cool. Yet, the phone call I received this morning proved things weren’t cool.
Looking from the Beacham’s point of view, I guess they figured having me around was going to be a liability. Even after telling me they wanted positive photos, I guess they feared me continuing posting photos of drunk dudes being carried out of the establishment by security. I guess they feared images like that were going to ruin their image. Truth be known, I understand that, especially seeing that I posted the logo on the pic.
By the way, the logo was somewhat of an accident. Until you click on the pic, you don’t see the logo. When I uploaded the pic on Facebook, I forgot the logo was on.
Time to move on, no use wasting energy fueling anger over the situation. Shit happens.
