who charges to attend mastering

Just curious if any other mixers charge to attend mastering sessions? I don't, even though I'm blowing a whole day with no day rate. But I usually get nice lunch, dinner and maybe drinks afterward for free; and the satisfaction of knowing the mastering went as I would have liked.

Thoughts?

Many of my clients bring along their mixing engineers, and with indie budgets, it is a sad but true situation that they often do not pay their mixers for that day. The mix engineer ends up giving his all to help make sure his mix is being represented or respected. I really try to respect the mix engineer who comes up for those mastering sessions because I often know he's giving up a valuable mix day!

I don't charge bands if I attend a mastering session with them. They do pay my way for the day though. For me it's usually a trip to Chicago (2 hours), and lunch/dinner.

If I'm mastering the record I charge for the service.
