Default Re: Those who shoot for a publication... Do you get paid ?

I work for an agency and only get paid if a publication buys my images from the agency. Luckily it isn't my main job as I'm not making anywhere near enough to pay a full time wage, but I am starting to build up a nice collection of stock images which is making me a little bit more each month.

I rarely get paid when I shoot for a publication but I always own copyright and receive extra tickets and control the size of images I submit. The compensation I get is from selling prints, licensing images, and being hired as house photographer at festivals. I'm not making much, but enough to cover some new gear purchases each year.

That must suck big time, I think the market is too saturated with too many magazines/webzines etc...

If you're not going to get paid--and apparently few people around here do--what's the point of building a portfolio?

Seriously. Does the magazine's office janitor work for free in hopes of getting hired later?

Yeah it does suck. But unless u work for print media or radio network you don't get paid. I'm hoping to improve my skills to a point where I can work for print or radio. Plus I love doing it

I'm struggling even for one print to pick me up, I don't think a radio station would pick me up I had this discussion with a DJ, that they do their "own photography" when they are at gigs...etc....its hard here

lmfao, the amount of "freebie" just for the sake of a photo pass is killing this industry off big time. Its about time these webzines start pulling in advertisers etc...if they have got such low readership, its about time they do their marketing properly

how webzines do you subscribe to? what do you think their gross revenues are? why do you think the largest weekly paper in new england started using college interns (ie, free) for photographers?


this industry's been dead for a while now.

I've recently decided to just put out my own magazine/fanzine. Print, not online. Its scheduled to come out next month. The project is not designed to maximize profit, as its done with an punk rock, diy spirit. Yet - if successful - I might make a little profit, which I means I got paid - at least technically. Plus I got myself promoted to chief editor, head of marketing, sales, human resources, etc... On top of that its a marketing tool for myself, getting my name out etc..

I "like" their pages facebook in order to get into their organisation, but don't subscribe to any because most are not available in print format in my area
