When a Pulitzer Prize-Winning Photographer is Asked for Free Photos…
Want to see how a Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer responds to a request for free images in exchange for “credit” from a major news corporation? You can, because that exchange happened a few days ago.
David Carson is photojournalist with the St. Louis Post-Dispatch who won the Pulitzer Prize with his paper this year for his coverage of protests in Ferguson, Missouri. Last Friday, Carson was contacted by what appears to be a CBS account on Twitter that regularly Tweets requests for image usage.
Carson’s question was never answered.
