I'm beginning to wonder if writing is becoming a second citizen. Most articles I write are on topics where I can also supply photos and many magazines simply pay a single package for that - so much per page for example. (I've certainly found there has been a greater acceptance rate where I can supply both words and pictures.) However, two recent payments have separated out the payments for words and pictures and in one case the total payment for the pictures is almost double that for the words. The words have taken me time to research, write, edit, redraft and so on and take x hours, the photos have often taken little more than a considered point and shoot as I tend to use my camera in auto mode. Is this the experience of others?
