This is a shame. Big shame. I hope the journalist works for free for having the nerve to do this. Why should she be paid if not the photographer?

I just receive a request from a journalist today to use several of my images for a web article she was writing. When I said ok based on a licensing fee, she replied that they would not be purchasing any images.

The journal? Scientific America!!!

Thus what hope is there for a professional career in photography these days when well known journals do not wish to pay for images...

Sad.
