Hi Samuel, I found this really interesting and I’m not even a photographer. Still, I feel I learned a lot about a different world and I think a lot of the points you covered apply to other areas, too (like the Insta-bubble etc.).
Also, I’ve been using Unsplash to find pictures (like probably everyone in Medium) and I was wondering how offering their work for free works for the artists. Your article is the answer and I’m glad that there are so many benefits to the great work people do on Unsplash.
