Please rephrase your question,
to work in what kind of studio? Commercial? Bridal? Makeover?
As photographer? Assistants? Or apprentices?


Anyway, the salary range can be very great, From $6~700 to a few K, it depend on experience, and skills.

A lot.

Believe me. Because I am now a fulltime photographer operating a small studio from home. :bsmilie:

If you don't believe me, ask my wife. She pays the bills. :bsmilie: :bsmilie:

That's sometime ago, not sure whether now still the same.

is a kind of catch 22 situation, to stay in competition, have to lower the price to attract customers, in order to lower the cost of operating, have to use cheap labors, and in the end quality sucks, this will only able to attract cheapo customers, will never able to jump out the circle.

And not forgetting that some of the high-end customers have a huge network of high-end friends (same age, getting married) and the referrals they give is like OMG! :angel: I never fail to give extra attention and freebies to make them happy. It's really funny, just give a couple of S8R + normal album (don't even have to paste, they DIY....tell them this way can appreciate pix more! ha), happy like no tomorrow...... free high-end advertisement for you. Advertising in mags/webby really waste of time + money.

For eg, i shot for 1 doctor, got 2 more doctor friends getting married. Biang.....shiok. Big budget.

Of coz aim for the correct couple, not all can do.... :D

I know of a makeover studio that pays between 1.2-1.4K to their photographers. 6 day work week, 9 hours a day. Confirm no weekend offs cos off day is a weekday.

The Suntec one? I itchy went to enquire before. Not even half of my pathetic day-time job. ;p And the bonus is also.... ;p

However, I do know that my pre-wedding studio photographer (in Suntec, not White Link ;) ) earns about 5-6k in a good month, pretty ok and survivable. :)
