This is a classic interview with long-time television writer Harlan Ellison. It's a great rant on the importance of being paid. He's referring to writers getting paid, but if you just exchange the word "writer" for "photographer," it still makes perfect sense. If you're ever wondering if you should be charging for a job or if you're thinking about providing photos in exchange for credit, watch this video first!
