Overheard: The pot calling the kettle black.

In catching up on some overdue forum reading, I came across a photographer who sells microstock, lamenting about his micro-agency making a business deal to give away photos to some major company. In his post he says:

…. the (DEAL) clearly tells me three things:

1. They don’t value their contributers enough to ask them first

2. They don’t value our work, as they are giving it away

3. They are stepping down the ladder….

So if I have right, he’s chosen to sell the full unlimited commercial use rights to his images for a few dollars, on which he makes a single dollar or less from his meager 20% agency commission that he willingly agreed to, and now he’s complaining that his agency doesn’t value his work because they are giving it away. Umm… Ok.

    Maybe he’s from Mexico? Where a dollar is highly sought after.
