Money…Who Needs it?

Together we can revolutionize the microstock industry. Join Revolucy.com

Earlier this week, an Atlanta based photographer who wonders why he is always being asked to do free shoots, put up a tongue-in-cheek post on Craigslist (update: Link removed as post is no longer listed) asking for people to give up their services for free. Have a read, it’s very funny.

“I am a photographer and since people are always looking for free shoots I assume that they must also do their job or provide their services, for free.

I am looking to hire all types of people to do all sorts of jobs for me, as long as I do not have to pay anything. Just think, you will gain more experience, and I will put the word out for you and let everyone know what wonderful work you do. This opportunity will bring you a ton of unpaid work, but everyone will love you. So if you have a job or service you provide, and will do it for free, please let me know, because I am sure I have work for you and will hire you in a second.

Feel free to email me with the service you can provide, when you can start, and please include references.

I look forward to your free service.

    Funny. Photography is not always respected as an art because anyone can buy a camera, yet it is up to the self-respecting photographer to stand up and set standards for what work they will take on what terms. Sometimes perceptions can change when artists/workers stand up for themselves.

      You've pretty much summed it up :)
