Episode summary: Is there ever a time when it is ok to work for free as a photographer, and if so, when would you make that exception?

And with all of the new fancy full-frame cameras on the market, when would you consider a full-frame camera over a smaller APS-C or m4/3 camera?

Here are the questions that Marco answers in this episode:


  1. Hi Marco, You have mentioned in the past that photographers should not work for free because images have value and there is quite a high direct cost involved with photography (like camera, lens, training, storage, software, computer, etc.). But would you consider to work for free for a charitable non-profit organization? I have been approached by a local organization and would like to hear your opinion if I should make an exception here? Love the shows! Regards, Soeren

Question from: Soeren, Stockholm, Sweden

  1. Hi Marco, I enjoy your Podcast very much. I am considering the Fuji XT3, but you mentioned on your recent podcast that you would consider a full frame camera for large prints. So just how big can you print with the Fuji APS-C ( XT-2 or XT-3) cameras that you would consider museum quality? Especially, with the new algorithm in Photoshop to up-Res your pictures or even using On1 Software "Resize".
