    One cannot earn a living when one has to compete with a GWC1 who will give it away free.

    Just hop on flickr or something, pay them $100, be done with it. I'll play devils advocate here:

    What if it just got more efficient? I mean, 1 photojournalist cannot be everywhere at once, but we now have people with cameras everywhere at once. Welcome to the new age....

    Does anyone remember HuffingtonPost not paying a penny for content, then Adrianna Huffington sold it to AOL for $316 million?

    You've hit the nail on the head?

    Fair enough Ken. I'm pretty aware of scatter charts btw, in fact motion charts (search Hans Rosling), the old scatter chart has even changed....

    I guess I'm merely saying, technology sure changes the workforce. I am sad for the local photog's affected, but media, is always rapidly evolving though. I tend to think at a slower pace then when say Gutenberg hit the scene a few years back....

    And this: How the Internet Killed Photojournalism.

    "Glut of imagery + short attention span = the demise of an industry. Laying off the entire Sun-Times staff probably isn’t necessary, but it’s convenient. Now you have 20 starving photographers who are desperate for freelance work earning a low day rate with no benefits.

    "Blaming the situation solely on the increased demand for video content is a ruse by management to wipe the slate clean. The truth is that they are reacting to the harsh realities of the journalism business nowadays, where profits trump newsmaking."

    Judging from the large number of newspapers that have gone out of business in the last few years, there isn't much profit to be made in that line of business.

    This is true, and it's what worries me.
