but for me, its something i wanted to do bah. remember. i'm a student. i cant just say "lets go and work for YOG to take photos" i guess probably my only way around this.
for me if i were to volunteer, i'll just do it. unless welfare sucks like nuts and they have totally no regard for my safety etc, then i might complain. other than that pretty much we shldnt be complaining.
its kinda like those who spent time doing reviews/writes guides here. they arent paid, they are volunteering. by the same argument, i can say if everyone was to write guides for free, who would write/buy photography books?
if u get the idea...
its different bah... different groups of people doing different stuff.
i think i need to draw a line between doing for free/volunteering.
the idea of volunteering
i think this is the key difference. for free seems to be doing for a certain purpose/goal, while volunteering is more of a give back to society thing.In general terms, volunteering is the practice of people working on behalf of others or a particular cause without payment for their time and services. Volunteering is generally considered an altruistic activity, intended to promote good or improve human quality of life, but people also volunteer for their own skill development, to meet others, to make contacts for possible employment, to have fun, and a variety of other reasons that could be considered self-serving.
