This was a great story I saw pop up in my feed today and wanted to share it with PAC. A photojournalist was paid $10,000 for misuse and stolen images and “pays it forward” to other photographers in her industry!
She is amazingly creating ten $1000 photography grants for other photojournalists to help them along. In a business that is usually very narcissistic and ego driven, this was a breath of fresh air for me.
I wish more photographers would give back to the photography community. That being said I wanted to give thanks to all the volunteers that give back to PAC every day – without them there would be no PAC!
