The way to improve and protect the photography market is to educate both clients and importantly photographers themselves, even the amateurs doing the occasional paid job. That is why there are far sighted and generous photographers sharing their business knowledge here for the bigger good:
WTB Manfrotto RC4 L Bracket
But I can understand that a freelancer, someone who does not depend on the service for his livelihood, does not usually have the resources or time to draft up a contract or other tools of trade that a professional photographer possessed. I don't think you are spoiling the market. The market is big enough to absorb freelancers. It's just that different people has different ways of looking at the market as a whole.
Cheers, keep shooting
