I refer you back to the first post in this thread... <span style="color:red"> "Just wondering what Paul, Len and anyone else who perhaps relies on news photography or Photojournalism to provide a crust thinks about the DT's offer to publish readers' newsworthy pics without payment and with a host of other 'conditions' ? To me it seems pure exploitation of the natural desire of most amateurs to see their work 'in print'." </span> Just because you aren't aware of it doesn't mean it isn't happening! At the agency where I work we are most definately being affected by the fact that newpapers and magazines are increasingly wanting something for nothing! The payment rates of many newspapers clearly shows that whilst they want good photography they don't want to pay for it! It will backfire on them in the end though as they will force all the decent photographers into more lucrative areas of the industry, leaving just the dregs!
