Photographers, you gotta love them, part 3

http://newyork.craigslist.org/mnh/med/504649642.html

This one is 12.50 an hour, if, of course, you're only going to work 40 hours a week. I doubt that. After spending all day lugging equipment, answering phones, getting lunch, then you'll have to sit down and do your "expert" retouching.
I know it's a tough life for photographers these days (I was an assistant in the 70s), but, jeez, how do they expect this to work? Just hand us the Raw, we'll fix it.

Re: Photographers, you gotta love them, part 3

this is typical, unfortunately nodody wants to pay and its a merry go round
Look at retouching sites what some people charge or even better free.
stock photography for a buck it goes on and on
It does not matter if you agree or not this is whats happening and I am 100%sure there will be a line up for this job

just my opinion zganie

Sounds like you must have a Phd in retouching just to be considered for the $500 a week.
