Got asked by local venue in being a house photographer, best way to approach?

Just a little of my background.

I've been shooting concerts for over a year now.

I currently shoot for two online publications. One pays nothing and the other pays per published photo. :oops: It's very little money but works because I cover shows I would have paid a ticket for anyway.

I'm trying to make a living off of photography, I do occasionally shoot weddings/other events and charge about $100/hr.

Anyway, a local venue contacted me and wanted to use my pictures, come to future events, and talked about becoming a house photographer.

I'm just wondering what the best way to approach this situation. I am interested but I definitely do not want to take advantage of.

Just ask them if they pay, nothing rude or horrible about that. If they don't then the decision is yours. They would normally credit you

Don't ask "if" they pay, ask "how much" they pay.

That sets the expectation that you are a pro and expect to be paid as such. If they say they don't pay, then you can decide if you want to do the charity work. [If you do it as charity, make sure you get the photorights for selling, advertising, promoting your work, etc.]

If they pay someone to pour drinks and someone to clean the restrooms, then this is a paying job, or you will hate yourself after a few weeks.

The problem is that there are some who would do it for nowt because they are already attached to an organisation who pays them lots of lollies, so recognition is the name of the game of some people, these are the people who are killing the job
