Why should people bother paying event photographers then? After all, it's just simple shots of an event.
Next time I am going to walk to Breadtalk and ask for free bread just because it's so cheap and simple to make bread.
It may be a simple request for pictures but it is also a sign of the person's lack of knowledge to come to a forum and ask for free pictures, when pictures ARE worth money and by giving them away to a stranger you are undermining the value of photos on the market in general.
At least have the decency to offer something as a barter or a payment if you want something.
