Why would you be hung up on the copyright? What else would you do with these images other than delete them when you get home?

Not at all hung up on it. I also said...

I don't see the photos as being worth much otherwise.

I just don't believe they need to claim copyright either. I believe the copyright should always remain with the photog. Even with liberal license agreements.

This isn't work for a photographer it's work for an anyone who owns a point and shoot camera. It's about the same as working at Berger King.

These jobs are listed all over for all sorts of different things.

Basically $1 per image. Not bad to walk around a park and go snap. You could easily be looking at $50/hour doing it. Of course if the park only has 50 sites, then thats all your making. But if you are camping there already, why not? It will pay for your stay more than likely. I would do it if they were out east. I wouldn't quit my day job, but I wouldn't mind doing it on the side...

Alleh hit the nail on the head. It's not for a serious photographer. Get over it.

Exactly folks, this is silly. To make this work, you need to find a campground that's mostly empty. And then spend an hour taking pictures. Then spend time downloading, burning to a CD, and then mailing (which will cost you $2). And then maybe collect $25. It's pocket change and doesn't really fall in the domain of "The Business of Photography".

I got their info:

No, the sites don't have to be empty, so YES, this is fine if you are already camping and want to take a leisurely stroll...

They have conflicting info on renaming files. The document says you are "required to" rename them, then two pages later it clearly says there is "no need to" rename the files.


So if I were campin' anyway or lived very nearby, it ain't difficult work, and I could pay for my site with a simple P&S while I walk the dog. Otherwise, not worth it to me.

OR! - I could do like I do when I go to State Park, Take my time get half a dozen or so nicely composed shots a day, for ever how many day's I'm there. When I return home I go through and edit them the way I like. Print the ones I want. Frame them or not to suit the print. So I might have $0.75 - $18ish in a print. Sell them at an art show $8 - $125.
On top of all that super hard work, all the expenses for the trip and printing are tax deductible. :D
Just another Idea for you if you want to make some pocket change from a trip to the local State Park.
Business is Business even if it is fun. ;-)a

First, yes, it's crap money for work!

But I feel for the national and state parks. Their budgets are cut constantly, their staff is cut, and their services suffer. Then we **** cuz they're shutting down parks or limiting access.

So I'd do something like this to help the park. Not to make money, but to help the park.

A lot of parks have gone to online reservation services (like Reserve America). Sounds like they want to offer a picture of each site because, as a camper, I want to know if there's shade, room for a slide out, how close we are to the next site, etc. I can see having a picture of the actual campsite, kind of a nice idea.

So if you move past doing it for money and maybe take the time/effort as volunteer effort, you'll do better. You could even forego the fee and bill it as a charitable deduction at $250/image!

Sure..but why volunteer and do charity work when you shouldnt have to ? Being empathetic is great but being too nice just gets you screwed over and taken advantage of.

Id rather be paid than popular, personally. A buck an image for all copyrights included..yeah screw that.
