If you are charging your clients for a second shooter (it is included in their package) I would think you would want someone who was a little past the working for "experience" phase.

It depends how good they are.. I'd rather pay $500 to have a compendium of keepers, then pay for a cheaper 2nd with few keepers...

We usually pay 300 for about 10 hrs when it's all said and done.

$500-600.
I would not second shoot for anything less than that,so that's what I pay for an experienced shooter.
