I tried looking it up in my area but endless pages of nonsense in google. I live in a wealthier area, minimum wage is like 7 bucks, but no one works for under 10. I got contacted by a local photographer who is pretty popular and well known and has been published in designer magazines. He shoots interiors. Not my bag, really, but he could teach me a lot about lighting and the business side that I lack knowledge in. He asked me what I would require for pay. I thought he would just tell me what he pays... so what should I ask for?
