Video from the writers strike in 2007. Replace the word “writer” with “photographer”. As someone states in the “Voices of Uncertainty” video “content is going to be more and more and more important”. We (photographers, writers and other artists ) are the content providers.
The media corporations/publishers are making money hand over fist with digital content, CONTENT THAT WE CREATE, yet they don’t want to pay us for the use of our work. Use their product without paying them and you’ll find yourself slapped with a copyright infringement suit. The hypocrisy and greed of these corporations is astounding.
Scroll down to watch the videos. Take a business of photography class and learn to price your work, aka content.
