Twitter Account Shares Real Quotes From Clients Who Want You To Work “For Exposure” (30 Pics)

The “For Exposure” Twitter account curates the craziest proposals people have gotten from potential clients. They discover and retweet the most extreme cases of choosy beggars trying to take advantage of artists and freelancers.

Working in a creative field is a grind. Building up a client base that understands and respects your work is tough, especially when there are so many people who seem to think it’s appropriate to hire someone just “for exposure.”

I’ve done stand-up comedy for over a decade and I still get people asking me to perform “for exposure” which is ridiculous because you’ll maybe get 20 people to come to the show. If they’re not willing to pay you, it’s usually not worth your time. That goes for any industry.
