I, for one, absolutely refuse to pay any fee in order to have my work reviewed for exhibition. After over forty years of dedication to my craft, the time and effort and, yes, the expenses I have had to incur, these fees are totally insulting to me. It seems that with the advent of digital photography, the apparent ease of making a photograph has got everyone with a digi-camera thinking that they are the next Ansel Adams, if only someone would look at their work. To that end, these dilettantes gladly part with their cash for the honor and privilege of having their work reviewed by a gallery. This is the job of the gallery, it is what they are in business for, and it shows a total lack of respect to the serious photographer to require him or her to pay for this dubious honor.
