Please Don’t Ask Photographers to work for free! Read this article and watch this video
This humorous video makes the point abundantly clear: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R2a8TRSgzZY

I laughed out loud at that video. And yes I completely agree with you Aaron, photogs need to be paid! Sure you summed it up perfectly well, its a real shame how digital age has devalued the photo itself. As the ‘avg’ joe might see it as click it and there is the image, but that is just a ‘point and shoot’ photographer, which is an oxymoron, those are not real photographers. if you want Real Photography, you have to pay for it. Simple, ;D -Zach (santa cruz, Calif)

I hope you don’t mind, but I will be sending this link out much more. You have made a very good point about why us, the real photographers, not the GWC, cant afford to work for free, or do an entire wedding for $200!
That video only added on to making the point nice and clear. So funny, but definetly points it out.

Well stated! Digital Photography has well devalued the worth of photography. These days manyfeel there’s no work now as it can be instantly downloaded without regards to quality. To top Victor Romero’s point, I have heard of someone wanting to photograph weddings for FREE to make themselves a name which hurts us across the board.

Nicely put. Thanks for spelling it out, but sadly it won’t be read by nearly enough folks(togs or potential clients).

Sorry, what’s up with the stereotypical angry black guy? Great video though.
