    Great article. I love how age and fitting some social mould matters less in the age of the internet.

    I will say this though — I think it’s normal and perfectly fine for an agency to mark up work. A business to business relationship is very different to a worker to business relationship. 20× does seem like a massive, massive difference though. I’ve been in a similar position where my time was being charged out at several hundred dollars an hour for retouching, and I was making a tiny portion of that. I guess the important take away from all this is that it isn’t just about talent, but also about trying to get some business sense as young as possible.
