Pay for Photo Tourist

A common sight that makes me cringe: Tourists paying to photograph a local with something, or in a pose by themselves.

There is nothing wrong with helping the impoverished, but paying to photograph someone is the wrong way to go about doing it. Not only does it encourage beggars (begging), solicitation, and aggression when a photographer doesn't cough up coins, but it facilitates an environment where children are often exploited as a way to make money.
