Free music downloads aren't putting much bread on the table either but nobody cares about that....and it costs a lot more to make a music track than it does to take a photo. Everyone thinks it's their right to steal music. As technology becomes more sophisticated we see the devaluation of the commercial arts. Some argue that it's the way it should be because art should not be commercialised. A photo costs as much as someone is willing to pay for it or what the seller is willing to sell it for. I bet there are people who would give their photos away. There's not much you can do to stop it. If you're already earning good money from taking photos then you wouldn't need to sell for a low price but there's not much you can do to stop others from getting into the industry by selling at lower rates.....just like any other market.
