This is a great read man — Appreciate you taking the time to share, although I don’t fully agree with you and stand by my opinion on the matter I do respect your thoughts and you do bring up a lot of valid points.
It’s a very weird time to be creative, expecially if your art is distributed online. I give my music away for free and get paid for shows, I give some photos away for free but also get booked on massive photo and film shoots. If I had to condence my whole article into a sentence it would “free photos on Usplash are great lead generators for new business”.
I do a podcast, would love to perhaps have you on as a guest so we can chat about this some more — Would be a great conversation!
