Freelancer vs. Stringer ?
What is the difference between a stringer and a freelancer? If you have a commission as a contract photographer for an assignment are you a stringer, whereas a freelancer is covering the event as an independent with no agency backing them, then selling the images independently? Where do they sell the images? How much does an "independent" get for images? Can independents get access as press?
Any PJ stringers or freelancers care into chime in?
