So I live in a semi-remote, but gorgeous part of the Caribbean. We struggle to find good assistants both in the studio and on shoots. I am considering offering a salary as a sort of catch-all for both studio and field work (weddings). They'd have to consider the move down here, but the cost of living is not bad and the perks are fantastic (80-85 degrees year-round, fantastic beaches, etc.). Given those perks, what do you guys think would be a good starting salary? I'd be looking for someone who knows their stuff, but maybe somewhat fresh out of college and looking for some experience. I'd offer a lot of mentoring, but I am honestly exhausted from trying to train people from the ground up. I've tried that with quite a few different assistants, and it ends in frustration.
