sorry I didnt think the title through and I am sorry if it offends anyone, I was just referencing to a page on DPS "Step # 2: Become a slave." I was reading up on articles on how to improve my photography. Allot of people say to contact pro's and ask to see if you can assist them for free. I live in Amherst Ohio, and there isn't that many local photographers. So I googled for a list and found this studio: The Gallery at Lantern Hill So my question to all the more professional photographers would be, how should I contact this person to let them know I'm interested, besides " Hi I want to assist you for free"? And would you want a 15 y/o kid assisting you?
