Craigslist ad

This made me laugh. Does he really think there are photographers out there with this gear who are willing to work for 12 hours at this rate?
That's a little better than 20 bucks an hour... yeah, right. AND you've got to work the crowd and supply online proofing???

That's insane, and it sounds like they are planning to sell those images to the parents too.
