I completed some photography work for a web designer and at the time the agreement was that the fee would go towards a new website for myself. I have since decided not to go ahead with a new website but the web designer is now saying that i cannot invoice him for the work and that all i have is credit with him which is worthless as i dont need anything doing?
i should also mention the photography work was completed for one of his client so i presume he has invoiced them for the work and been paid.
how do i stand legally in terms of invoicing him for the work - does he legally owe me the fee for the job (i have not recieved any payment for it and dont want the credit) or is he within his rights not to pay me and keep the fee as a credit for future work (which i dont want or need?)
so what can i do in terms of negotiating a payment instead of the worthless credit?
it was never on paper agreed just verbally??
