->> What strikes me as I looked over this list, if it is truly indicative of the market today is how in the world does anyone make a living as a photojournalist these days? Even if you work every day, how do you make enough to cover your business expenses, much less eat? Those rates look a lot like what I remember from 30 years ago.

->> Dan, I thought the same thing. Pretty stunning. I understand doing something that you love but how can that kind of work pay the bills, much less acquire new gear? I have a newfound respect for those out there trying their utmost to make it.
