Just got the call from a local comedy shop that they want me to do shots of the cast and crew along with photos of the theater...This should be a riot as it's a cutting edge comedy group with a lot of twisted and weird alternative skits. I'm doing this for free so that I can get some exposure to build up my portfolio, nice thing is the guy said that if the images are nice that he can hook me up with paying jobs for headshots and advertising photos. Also, the theater is looking for a photographer to do shows during the week and they will also pay, I have no idea how much and have no idea how much to ask. I'll be using my D700 with the sigma 24-70, figure this would be a good lens for all around use? The 700 has a built in flash, but I'm wondering if I'll need a dedicated unit? I'm guessing that I won't need any releases or legal forms as this is kinda casual? I'm going to print up some business cards to hand out and the theater is going to give me a free listing on their site along with free adds in their printed flyers. I'm going to order a studio lighting setup of off amazon, light boxs and backgrounds so that I can do some headshots of friends and relatives. For somebody like myself, who is not a pro, what is the going rate for headshots? Whats the going rate for doing photos of a comedy show?
