The freeloader portfolio-building-opportunity epidemic
Apr 29, 2013

I don't know about the areas outside of the big metropolises, but in Chicago area a freeloader fest is underway. Everyone and their mother want photography for free. And it's not confined to craigslist any longer. Maybe the virus has spread in the drinking water. The offer has become almost a word-by-word cliche. Even businesses want you to work for "the opportunity to build your portfolio" (while at the same time they want an experienced photographer with good resume and a...yes... portfolio), and they also promise to let you use the images you took for free (LOL!).

Another quickly spreading affliction is an offer to become an intern.. Outfits that have nothing to do with photography offer internships....

Anything like this going in your neighborhood?
