This seems to make that point quite well.

I am sure other people besides photogs would be interested in reading this, why don’t you have this feature in newspapers and magazines so that the people can see what it takes to get the images to thier doorstep..maybe photographers will get a bit more respect when the people understand how we do our business.

It blows my mind as to how many cameras are placed on the race track.

Is there a dedicated Reuters photo-blog?
