This is not his first acceptance,he has 70 photo's here.I believe he means he sold his first photo to a publication for print.Congrats Joseph,and I remember how I felt when I sold my first photo to a magazine. bigthumbsup

Hi Flyfisher.

Many congratulations on that. I have never had that happen to me yet - maybe one day. I always find that the mere mention of any money tends to cause emailers to disappear into the ether.

What is the publication?

Cheers.

Paul

Me neither, but, I have had my first in an Austalian Airsafety Magazine not that long ago. I never charged as I wanted the publicity not cash. So if I can do it, Paul, you've got nothing to worry about!

Well done to you Joseph! Hope you have much more success.

Thanks for all the positive feedback!

Some sort of advertising campaign in the UK. It was a short run and small size, but it paid for my new Sekonic light meter!

I've been pretty lucky(?). I got my first SLR camera a little over a year ago. In that time I've been contacted three times for paid usage of my photos (on ANET). I've been able to close one out of those three contacts.

I think it's all in the approach. I wish everyone would stand up and ask for payment for their work. I know someone who gave away a cover shot for a magazine. While still a great accomplishment, he should have asked for money. I have a strong background in sales. The difference between getting paid for your work and not is mostly in how you handle the situation. Unfortunately, there are some who make the process of getting paid every more difficult for the rest of us by giving their work away for free.
