p.1 #1 · At NY Daily News, photographers' trade looks dark

New contract for freelancers reduces the ability of freelance photographers to resell their work, something that has long been considered a staple of their compensation because the base pay is relatively low.

This has been happening throughout the newspaper biz for a while now with new contracts. If freelancers don't sign the dotted line there's a bevy of newcomers ready to work for less, behind them even more. Just remember when you were looking for a foot in the door...sad.

Call it the Grapes of Wrath syndrome-- always someone willing to work for less, which drives down wages for everyone.

Sadly, so many newspapers happily run submitted photos that cost them nothing. In many cases the hapless iPhone snapper doesn't even get credit.

$175 to $250 per day.

Who are these people? That is the real question, who can afford to work for this sum?
