I just got on offer yesterday while I was working, from a friend that I met when I first got started in photography, we met at a cousins party and talked for a few hours about stuff and I actually learned alot in those few hours. I didn't see him for about a year until yesterday when he came in and saw I was working in the photography store. He was happy that I was working there and told me he is allways looking for assistans at weddings and stuff like that. I told him I'd love to do it for free just so I could learn. He told me he would pay me even though I don't know much about wedding shoots! So anyways.. to my question.. how do assistants normally get payed, percentage? By the day? Hour? What's average? He does alot of large weddings I think. So anyways, thanks guys!
