p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · 2nd Shooter Fees for NYC & its Surroundings


Hi everyone,

I have joined FM a little over a week ago, though I have read some interesting & insightful threats here before that. However, this is my first post. I'm sure this question or something similar might've been asked previously in the general sense, but I'm specifically interested in the NYC area and its surroundings: What's the average fee as a 2nd shooter? This question can be broken into twofold for the 2 different audiences:

1) Primary Shooters, how much do you offer 2nd shooters in general?

2) 2nd Shooters, how much do you ask from primary shooters in general?


Thank you for all your feed backs!

Just to get you started, I've personally gotten $30-50 per hour in CT. I'm actually pretty close to NY, but if I were shooting right in NYC, I'd expect closer to $50 for sure.

Rate isn't the only item you need to consider...

1)
Do you edit the images?

2)
Are you allowed to use the images in your portfolio?

3)
Even if the answer to 2) is "No", you will still benefit from being able to cull through the images so that you can improve on your mistakes.

If it's a "Hand over the card at the end of the night", w/ no feedback, then bear this in mind when considering if the money you're offered is even worth it.

Does any second shooter edit the images? That's nuts.

This is a pet peeve of mine. For some reason, editing is now called culling, and post processing/retouching is now called editing, but I think he means cull in this case.
