Does This Make Me A Professional?
I'm now a published photographerin Motoring & Leisure Magazine
. No, not the cover image you see here, but a small stock photo of a road sign. Someone on the staff found the image
in my flickr
photostream and asked if they could use it for their letters-to-the-editor pagesomething about bicyclists and drivers sharing the road. I didn't get any money, but I got a photo credit in an honest to goodness magazine
(and a free copy of the magazine). In related news, I recently discovered that you can quickly find websites that use your images by searching technoratiand in fact, I found several that have used my images. All without explicit permission, but all gave credit and that's all that's required under the Creative Commons
