I had to post this info so people like this can't hide behind the anonymity of craigslist while taking advantage of others.

Best selling author Anna Lappe can't afford a modest fee for photography that she will use for further commercial gain? What the hell is wrong with people. I find it especially discouraging that said author is in ways a social change advocate - someone who researches the root causes of hunger and poverty. I have a big tip for you: look at how you devalue others hard work for your own gain. Photo credit is great - I take it to the bank all the time and use it to pay rent and buy groceries. Oh wait, no I don't. Shame on you.

>>Are you a photography student looking to practice your skills, or a photographer who wouldn't mind an uncompensated gig? We're looking for someone to do a photo shoot, mainly for headshots, of a best selling author who has a book coming out this spring. You could get photo credit in a national magazine.
