Make Money as a Freelance Photographer For Newspapers:
Did you know? From local papers to national dailies, newspapers regularly pay freelance photographers for those special shots that their staff photographers were unable or too busy to take.
The fees paid by newspapers to freelance photographers vary considerably. There are many newspapers that pay around $150 to $200 per shoot. In addition to this they often pay a mileage rate to compensate you for driving to the location for the shoot.
