Paying for Submissions to Magazines ?
I recently starting sending images to different Magazines in hopes for a feature online or (fingers crossed) in print. Its my first time doing so, so I didn't have any high hopes. I heard back from a smaller mag and bigger mag looking to pick it up. Of course I figured its better to go with the bigger of the 2 but they asked for an "advertorial fee"
Shooting for free is not something I do anymore, but paying for a feature in a mag doesn't sit right with me....Is this the direction the industry is heading or is this just another case of photographers being taken advantage off?
