Is a 50-50 profit split typical?
It sounds reasonable, and it's their offer. You don't want to negotiate your way out of a part-time job, do you? In return you are getting experience, visibility, and compensation. I am not sure how a local newspaper figures "money earned", but you should ask so there are no regrets down the line. Make sure that you have the option to decide what photos you want to split proceeds in case you shoot a Pulitzer.
