I mentioned a week ago that I had been offered a job from a website "magazine" to be a staff photographer for them. I have been procrastinating on this and today I received a call from them. They want to know what events I would be interested in covering for the 2006 season and how far I would be willing to travel. They want me in addition to photographing the events to also write the coverage of the event as well as driver interviews, etc. They will pay travel and lodging expenses as well as a monthly salary. I would retain ownership of my images but they could only be displayed on their website. My question is to anyone else out there doing this type of work, what is a fair salary to ask for? I don't want to be too cheap but I also want to be realistic. I will be using my own camera gear so that has to have a value too. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.
