I have been approached by a local council arts officer to photograph a local event in a few weeks time.
The event will take about 1 1/2 hours to cover plus I expect a few hours more to select & process images and then provide the selected images to them.
My concern is that I am a hobbyist photographer and although it is always nice to make a few dollars as I go along, am I taking income from the photographer(s) that are usually employed by the council to cover this type of event?
Or should I just go with the flow and make a few dollars.
There is also the caveat "I dont have a lot of dollars", so they may be expecting that I do the job for beer money!
