Come on guys, what are you getting all frazzled about? These guys are on the cutting edge... We're all heading to the barter system as far as the economy goes... Hell, I'll do it for a sack of red beans and rice (25 pounds min.)

In all honesty, I can understand photographers getting offended by being asked to provide their equipment and skill just for the pleasure of having a photo published in UNVOGUE (?!?). It's a real problem that people put "no pay" in a place where people are looking to find paying work, especially in such an expensive enterprise as photography. It shouldn't even be an option, frankly.
To the UNVOGUE people: You get what you pay for. If you are willing to pay nothing, you probably should understand that you're not going to get a level of quality that you want representing your magazine. I am pretty sure folks would agree that if a magazine had a poor quality photograph on its cover, they're not as likely to take it seriously, and even less likely to purchase the magazine. Good luck, as you say.

Hey hey, now guys, c'mon. There is no need to whine about non paying mag gigs. Us pro photographers all know that magazines think we all become superstars after getting published for credit only...when in fact I don't even know half the people who shot for the REAL Vogue 10 years ago.
Don't shoot for mags who don't pay at all. It's bad enough that some only pay $150/shoot. I've never shot for a mag and nevertheless make decent living. With patience and hard work you can do the same.
