-Almost 200 small lattes from Dunkin Donuts (it's a special around here and smalls are $1)
-A really rad leather Betsey Johnson purse & necklace from Loehmanns
-20 yards of spandex
-4 rounds of shots for you and four of your friends at a NYC club/bar
Now...I understand that people have to get paid and I can't expect everyone I work with to do things for free. However, when you have like three photos to show me of your work and ask the price above for your time, I get a little cautious.
But then when I see a set done of yours that looks pretty whatever after from what I heard about all the work that goes into a photo...well...
I don't know. Sometimes I don't understand this whole world of trade, paid and favors...it feels the artsy talented people do for free & trade and the ones who know their shit and deliver (but are full of themselves) or the very average ones require the monies.
