Upload Image Binary File for Image Share Returns “Invalid Access Token”

According to the LinkedIn docs, in order to create an Image Share with the API, you have to first register the Image by using /assets?action=registerUpload. You then use the uploadUrl returned to upload the image as a binary file like this (from the LinkedIn docs):

curl -i --upload-file /Users/peter/Desktop/superneatimage.png --header "Authorization: Bearer redacted" 'https://api.linkedin.com/mediaUpload/C5522AQGTYER3k3ByHQ/feedshare-uploadedImage/0?ca=vector_feedshare&cn=uploads&m=AQJbrN86Zm265gAAAWemyz2pxPSgONtBiZdchrgG872QltnfYjnMdb2j3A&app=1953784&sync=0&v=beta&ut=2H-IhpbfXrRow1'

When I try this with my image and the url that the register upload returned I got "Invalid Access Token." What's going on here? I'm not providing an access token in the second step, and the first step runs fine with the access token I provided it.
