I would have done it for half that. I have a new handout on a really simply photo shoot set up. If anyone is interested send me an e-mail and I will pass it on. I remember one time we had to shoot a bunch of food for a brochure for the school cafeteria. Of course we had no art director, props or anything. Everyone in the office scrambled home to get whatever plates and glasses and silverware we had as well as placemats anything else we could think of. By the end of the day we had some really great photos. Of course we also had some really smelly food by the end of the day because we also didn't have any ice or a way to heat the stuff.
