This is great reading, Thanks Simon and all who are contributing. Simon is 100% right that the climbing photo industry in Australia is in a sad state of affairs. The money you get for a published slide will be lucky to cover expenses, film, processing, travel costs, administration.

It is a shame because Australia has some of the best climbing photographers in the world. Most of the photos in Rock are comparable to any overseas mag and the quality seems to be getting better from year to year. Obviously there's still some bum shots or uninteresting (IMO) photos in there but it is really starting to come together. Tassie seems to have some great climbing photographers, and Cam's closeup/action style photography really complements some of Simon's more atmospheric work.

Unfortunately the situation won't improve whilst all the major climbing photographers accept small pay for their work. Simon, do you have any knowledge of how things are overseas, are they facing the same issue as us? I can't see an easy solution to this.
