    I did a bunch of yard work for a couple that kept their dead pets in the freezer until they buried them. While they were certainly eccentric (and thank god that eccentric people still exist despite our society's attempts to make them disappear), they did not mistreat me as a worker or as a human being in any way.

    I feel this woman is irresponsible for working for free. I don't care if she has lots to learn, Giving away work services for free lowers the standard of the industry. It takes money away from those who are good and what they do and charge for it.

    I don't think this is the case of free labor. Internship, when done correctly, is an exchange of labor for training and education. Both sides walks away with net plus.

    In most Canadian jurisdictions, until the last 50 years or so, legal interns (aka articling students) weren't paid, in fact they had to pay their principals (bosses).

    And it is still fairly common that articling students agree to work (for almost a year) for free, or a very small stipend.

    Completion of a year (or so) of articles is a necessary pre-requisite for being permitted to practise law in my jurisdiction.

    So unpaid internships aren't limited to just photography.

    She graduated from Cornell with an English/Sociology degree. She probably expected to get a high paying job two weeks after graduation. Instead, she ended up being an unpaid lackey for some whack job photographer. Who has the problem? The photographer or her?

    Too many college grads, these days, get upset when they aren't sitting in the corner office of a high rent office building a week after graduation. This chick basically got a dose of reality and she didn't like the taste of it.

    The smartest thing she did was quit.

    Feet tickled? She was lucky that she didn't have to do the ice on the nipple thing.
