On another forum I frequent, there is a big battle going on between the newbies just starting out who are giving away their images for free to venues and the pros who are losing work because of it. Many venues or just about anyone, magazines, news agencies, books, newspapers....etc, the list is endless, wont pay for images anymore due to someone giving them shots for free just to see their name in print. http://www.sportsshooter.com/news/1989
This should be Required Reading for anyone thinking about getting into this field of work, and something you should always think about when someone asks you for your images for free.
Too many times do we not think about the consequenses of the working professional who is not putting food on the table just so you can get your name in the local paper.
