Could you please teaching me the ropes sometime Phil? I would love to work by you.

I second shot with Phil when I was first starting for free. He has - and will - do a lot for me.

That's true. If I contract for a second shooter and the client is paying for one, then I have to hire experienced shooters. If they decline, but another photographer is looking for experience, then it can be a Win/Win if they want to be part of it. I shot quite a few weddings as a second and third shooter just for the experience and it was definitely worth it at the time

I have someone I utilize from time to time. She's great at setting up poses and has en eye for locations. She takes a few hundred candids here and there but at the end of the night, she just hands me the card and I do all the editing work. I paid her $250 last time and that was for about 10 hours of help. Her vision makes this money well spent because a few of the shots that I feel like we nailed were a result of her staging the shot.

I've second shot a few weddings and do it for free usually, or a dinner down the road at the most. I enjoy being able to try new things and there is a million times less pressure in the second shooter role.
