Average Estimated Salary (in NYC): $50,000
If you're looking to be the photographer's right-hand man, a position as a digital tech is the gig for you. During photoshoots, the photographer relies heavily on the digital tech to let them know how images are looking as the photog is shooting, if everything is in focus, and all other logistics. It's face-paced and can be extremely trying at times, but the opportunity to work with a crew of talent and creativity makes it all worth it. Also a plus if you're shooting a babe like our current cover story subject, Jhené Aiko.
