The following video is not about photography, gear or a new technique. Still I think it is super relevant to anyone who picks up a camera and shoot.
All American Blogger Duane Lester has one of his posts reprinted by a local paper. (And when I say reprinted, I mean copy-pasted, including typos and everything).
The short video after the jump shows Duane’s discussion with the editor of that particular newspaper.
I think that Duane handled this situation way better than how I would have :)
Here is what I’ve learned:
- Come prepared
- Be respectful
- Don’t forgo
- Don’t let a mention of a lawyer set you back
- Demand reasonable compensation
- speak with the one who has authority to pay
- Be ready to show proof
- Have a printed invoice
