It’s not about the money, it’s about availability and redundancy. Most articles I see are available for free elsewhere. And most articles I see end up rehashing the previous ones. Let us not talk of the interminable back patting (to put it kindly) in the comments zone, eliminating any chance of actual debate or confrontation on any given subject.
Title should be “How (some news and editorial) photographers don’t make a living”, as the article is entirely focused on that segment alone. No mention of fashion, advertising, weddings, family or corporate portraiture.
