    A lot of them do pay. It just depends on the company and industry. Rates vary considerably by company and industry.

    Too bad there has been no action in that Milan thread just below. I visited there in December, and liked the city. Had the same buzz as NYC, but, Italian style. I assume it's more affordable to live in than London or Paris. Of course, it's the fashion Capitol of Southern Europe. Can you learn Italian? Lots of stylish people walking around.

    I know of at least 5 independent retouchers, and as many agencies and photographers that work on global campaigns and are based in CZ. There is absolutely work in CZ, especially Prague and Brno. London is no paradise and there are many people at your level there. Asia is good for beginners, yes.
    From what I can tell, internship is a great idea. Contact fashion photography representatives, or marketing agencies locally and ask for these sort of positions.
