Local print media varies, depends mostly on the size of the publication ,the size of thier budget, and the demand for the picture.

Here in our smaller city (Waseca) the local newspaper is pretty small time and they don't pay for pictures. I recently provided them with a picture in exchange for photo credit which was nice free advertising and led to more work right away.

In general for print media, regardless of size.

They only pay for pictures that the want exclusive use of, if they dont want exclusive use then they wont pay in most cases.

So, always offer pics to any outlet you can lay hands on, but only after the usuals dont want exclusivity, if they dont (be sure and ask them), hand them the pic for nothing and then offer it to the rest of the print media right away.
No point in wasting a shot on one paper that cant pay for that pic, when the shot can be used to make other outlets aware of your pics.

The rule that applies as Im instructed is, sell a pic to one paper and you cant offer it to the rest.
While you legally can, you'd be burning your bridges and they likely wont use you again.
For smaller papers, as daggit points out, you can barter with them for good shots for other things, but again if you do, dont go offer the pic to other outlets. It's real bad form.

This is the ver of events as Im told by a faily long serving news paper journo Ive known for a few years who works in editoral dept.

Ive had a few pics published (taken on foot), none paid for to date but then I didnt get any major event or didnt get in places others didnt to get an exclusive shot.
Last one was a car fire, got the whole thing, exploding tank, bits shooting off it, fireman hosing it, and police inspecting it.
But only a local event so the papers cant pay.

In general terms for the RCcam rigs, forget about print media, but then if your in the right place at the right time and get an action shot you think might be one papers want, dont hestate to offer it, just dont go out planning to shoot news expecting youll always get paid, or expecting youll get paid some of the time.
You may not get paid anytime for quite some time.

Matt
Thanks for the feedback on the website. I use to do some website design work on the side.
Sorry, are you saying you designed that site ?

Its a very nice site for sure,professional looking, but from the look of it, (maybe I got it wrong) isnt it a package site, sorta fill in the template job.
If not mistaken, with a "QuickSiteMaker Business Opportunity Seminar"

Cheers

simple page in the works...

I am working on a site aswell.

Its going to be very simple site, very easy to navigate.


A co-worker showed me a template he uses for his sites. He modified the original template just a little and alternated a few colors, inserted a logo and it its looks almost done!

Cheers,
Dean
