I was close to sell a photo a couple of months ago. Well I don't know about close.. Anyways, I received an e-mail from a journalist at the biggest financial newspaper in Sweden. He asked me if I had information about the aircraft (bizjet) as he was thinking of writing an article about the company that owned it. (He had seen my photo on A.net).
I replied and said that I did not know anything about the company or the aircraft mentioned. So me being 'close' was when he asked me if he could use my photo in the article.
I guess the article never got published - he did not get back to me.
This was purely luck and had nothing to do with me being a great photographer. Because I am not. Nonetheless, it was still fun to have the chance of maybe selling a photo.
BTW, the photo was my 3rd here on A.net.
