I´m curious in what fields and part of the US most of the well paid retouch / creative imaging assignments (collages, 3D or mixed techniques) show up?

Are people reluctant to work over great distances (I´m living in Sweden). How would one best go about to get overseas assignments, in your opinion?

/Jan

You should go fish first, then you will get the answers you're looking for

You´re kidding, right? I was convinced that "curious and lazy" was the ultimate combo.

Nope. You should drop your net in different places, some fishes you will get. Experience will show you the way to the big ones. California is meant to have big fishes, but, you can find works there for no more than $2 usd each pic and others who will pay much more. There is not a place, just clients. Of course, never drop a net near third world countries 'cause you will be scammed and/or find even cheaper jobs. That's a rule of thumbs.

I´ve stumbled upon some serious price drops here in Sweden as well on occasion. Time to prepair for the asian rise. A successful IT firm I know of here have already adopted new low price models to meet the competition from the east. Without sacrificing profit though, they cut down elsewhere - but not salaries. Reusing stuff, and always have time-saving a top priority, involving every good idea from the staff. A bit hard to cut costs working as a one man show though.

Yeah, it's just a mater of time and they will start cutting down salaries as well...
