We ran across this great letter to a producer from a songwriter, NJ White in the UK, as to why he is not willing to give away his work to the producer for free.  The link is on Paul Resnikoff’s Digital Music News website. It’s a great read.

We especially like the part that reads: “…even the cleaner who mopped your set and scrubbed the toilets after the shoot will get paid. The musician. Give him nothing.”

But the best is the line in response to the request for free, which reads; “The answer is a resounding, and permanent NO.”

For those few of you that might ask “What does this have to do with photographers?”, well,  all we can say is “Everything.” Bravo Mr. White.
