The last commercial job I took, I accepted scale from the publication. Happens that I made $400 plus all expenses for a one day shoot for "Fine Homebuilding Magazine" The shoot was above Teluride, Co. for an article a friend was writing for them, and I was working as a carpenter on that project anyway. I made double my regular days pay plus some extra for that, took all of an hour of my time after work to shoot the items needed.
