Did you have something better (income-wise, since you are unemployed) to do those two days? Even at only $150 for 12 hours you made significantly more than a minimum wage job would have paid.
Who is selling the prints to parents, you or her? If it's you, then your final income hasn't been determined yet. If it's her then...
No, I didn't have anything really better. That's why I took the job. You have a very good point for sure! I am, by no means, turning my nose up at earning a $1! I really just wondered what the industry standard was for this kind of thing as I feel like I'm getting "fleeced" per se. Mostly because she "sold" me on the job by stating I'd make about $200-$300 per shoot. But, it turns out, this has only happened once and the conditions were ideal. She also said I would only have to "show up and shoot". So far, it's been MUCH more than just shooting.
I know...I completely realize where you're going. As I said, I am just exploring whether or not this is a good situation or would I be better off doing something else.
Oh and she does the selling. She won't disclose how much she sells...I've asked.
