Beware if National Geographic comes calling
1

Just caught this on PetaPixel the other day. A guy was approached by Nat Geo to use one of his photographs. He was expecting a decent commission rate. Instead, what he was offered was a paltry sum. He was waffling with himself over his decision (I guess because of NG's reputation) but I think he made the right decision.

This type of thing is kind of on par with what I've seen with Nat Geo in the past few years. I remember that one photographer didn't get paid for a cover for one of its international editions. Your Best Shot is another shady deal; it's basically another version of Flickr.

What do you think?
