I know what you are saying

I have had some possible work coming in and they were only offering less than the min wage. In the UK that is just over £5 per hour. I did some research and they cannot do this even in countries such as India. So I really don't know who they will find to work at these low rates. Such as pity as the image are high end beauty shots - just up my street. The issue I have is that you need to spend at least an hour (often longer) on each images to acheive the perfect skin they are after - they were only offering a low price per image not per hour.

Shelby I think in that case they would have to take it OS or to someone who will do the work at any price in order to have the experience - or a combination of both of the above. Here for example, (I can't remember how to do a pound symbol) 5 pounds is close enough to about $13. Our minimum wage is about $6 I think. To meet that then its between 2-3 pounds. (our dollar is just over a third of a pound in value)

That is US dollars though isn't it? I'm in Australia, which is on average 30-43p per dollar.

I wouldn't get out of bed for less than £10 per hour. Thats about $17.50 USD , $23.92 AUD . My average on restoration work is double that, in order to cover dead hours and overheads
