Maybe he should stop calling him his "boss" and calling him his client.
The relationship seems a little "loose", to say the least. The "boss" sent him on an assignment and then immediately paid him for something. Seems to me that the boss had a client and paid his worker an agreed rate (either as an employee or contractor) to shoot a product. Unless it was defined otherwise, I suspect it would be very hard to collect royalties or additional compensation at this point.
