we don’t buy newspapers

Posted in random thoughts by marco on 30 October 2009

Some young photographers who are content providers are not content consumers.  Which begs the question:

“If you won’t pay to see someone else’s work, why do you expect people to pay to see your work?”  ”How do you expect to make a living as a photojournalist?”  ”Who is your audience?”

from Greg Ceo

I quite agree Greg’s points. I don’t buy many newspaper because I can READ the information online. But if we want to WATCH good pictures, we need to see them printed on a book and buy it or we go to an exhibition (the same as the writers he talks about).
And I don’t even think about jumping at the chance to take a workshop with a “famous” photojournalist (and pay a ridiculous amount of money for it).

“I have always considered being crazy as important to a photographer as being curious.”

by Dirck Halstead

Sad but true… only mad people would try to make a living as photojournalis nowadys. What you think?
