I work for a local community theater, taking headshots, publicity photos, and production shots. I work about 20 hours per show and there are generally 6 shows per year. I get paid only $50 per show. I also burn discs of photos for the theater and the actors (normally 400 photos) to try to make some additional cash, but it hasn't given me enough to live on. I now live 45 minutes away from the theater, so it's a lot of money in cash and tolls. I have worked with this pay for almost 4 years now, and I cannot afford to do it anymore. I want to ask for more money, but I do not know what to go in asking for. Does anyone have any advice or suggestions?
