There's currently a thread going on in this section about a Craigslist ad offering "exposure" in exchange for basically free photog work, and the OP asking who still falls for this.
What my question is, has anyone ever done one of these gigs and then actually received recognition from it and future work that could be traced back to that "exposure".
When people have asked me lately to do work and tell me how much "exposure" and "credit" I'll get, I ask them if they have made this deal with other photographers before. They always say yes. So I follow up with "And what future business did they receive from the 'exposure'". Of course they can't answer it. Now I'll grant you they probably truly don't know, but the question shuts them up real quick.
So, anyone have any concrete experience either way?
