I'm sent these types of videos from friends who often deal with these misconceptions. Also articles and video lectures by creative professionals expressing their challenges with clients expecting them to provide work for "exposure" and credit. I'm not sure when those two things took the place for money but if we're all returning to a barter system or my rent, equipment and bills no longer cost me actual money, then I'd be more willing to consider a trade but until then accepting anything less than proper compensation for my images, time and skill is not going to happen. How many of you out there are also experiencing this? How are you handling it?
