I'm an aspiring pro. Maybe being able to put "published in the Village Voice"in my resume and letting them take the image without payment JUST THIS ONCE is worth it, since the paper is very well known in the New York City area?
Ha, this is the same mistake so many of us have made and guess what - it doesn't work that way! If your images can't speak for themselves without a list of who used them to have to go along with them, then the images aren't very good (and this one you posted is good).
I have publications I was stupid enough to submit to free back in the day, guess what has never and will never be put in my portfolio or even the list of who has used my stuff. You guessed it, anyone who has used it free because of my stupidity. A resume has who you WORKED for, not who has published your stuff one time, free of all things.
