Professional journalism and the lure of the free

I’d like to open Wednesday’s class with a discussion about Gage Skidmore, a 19-year-old community-college student who’s made a name for himself by taking professional-quality photos of Republican politicians and making them available for free.

I interviewed Skidmore for the Nieman Journalism Lab. Please be sure to read the comments at the end of the story — it reveals an interesting clash of mindsets.
