I have done a few jobs for Alexei, His payment is all over the place. He uses a retoucher for awhile and when he feels that its time up. He won’t pay for the last few. Emails go unanswered. I know this is his M.O. As its been done to other colleagues. Beware of jobs that will go unpaid. Also he will make partial payments and have you hanging so you don’t go to court.
