    Appropriate figure for a photo assistant?

    Hi,

    I am new to the industry and have little experience, Im looking for some guidance as to how much i should charge for doing photo assisting. I am a fast learner, I know right from wrong, and Im extremely patient. Im going to school for photography. (ill be a sophomore in the fall)

    This is in boston, so if anyone could share some insight on what a fair rate would be, Id appreciate it.

    hi there

    you might consider going to boston and poking around at ep levines on drydock. levines has "the list" and i am sure they would be able to tell you what the going rate is.


    good luck !

    Cutting through the sexist BS for a moment, the going rate in the UK would be around £100 a day - whether you get this will depend on how great the photographer in question thinks he/she is and how much of an honor he/she thinks he/she is doing you by employing you. Certainly any research would be valuable, is there no one at your college who can help? If there is a company that keeps a list of assistants, you could call them (not necessarily giving your right name) and ask them how much it would cost you to hire an assistant - this would get you a straighter answer.

    Good luck and best regards.
