Found this posting looking for an experienced photographer. It actually sounded like it may be a pretty cool gig until you get to the compensation part. So that brought up the question in my mind, is this the going market rate for experienced photographers working as an employee for another company as a product/clothing photographer, or is this company just low balling? I'm assuming the company is providing all of the equipment although I can't say for sure.
