Guardian photo fee row spreads overseas

The dispute over fees paid to national newspaper photographers for the re-use of their images has spread overseas, Amateur Photographer reports today.
The magazine says it "understands that photographers in Paris are now refusing to work for the Guardian News & Media (GNM) group under new terms that mean freelancers no longer receive income from commissioned images which are subsequently re-used."
Earlier this month press photographers staged a protest outside the Guardian's London offices over the dispute.
Amateur Photographer reports that more than 1,000 photographers have so far signed a petition against the move. Supporters include high-profile photographers Eamonn McCabe, Chris Steele-Perkins and Don McCullin.
