From my experience, this is how the whole photo licensing thing seems to work:
- For better ranking in search engines, make sure every post on your blog has its own page and the post-title is part of the URL.
- Now and then post a photo of something that you think could work for advertisement or as a book cover.
- Give it a descriptive title so it shows up as a relevant result in image searches.
- Soon you will receive emails with requests for those other pictures you never thought someone would want.
It's the most unpredictable thing, but that's OK.
The photo blog you are currently visiting has its 7th birthday today. On each anniversary I try to come up with a post that's a little different from those regular posts that some of you find interesting, some of you inspiring and some of you just plain weird.
Well, since it's Mother's Day today, how about a photo of my mother and me? In my whole wide family (we are 5 generations of a wide spectrum of individuals) nobody is as driven to travel as she is. In fact, there has been so little interest that it was always very difficult for her to get going. However, she still did. She took all her courage, put me and my brother in her car, and started driving as far as all the way down to the south of France. Watching wild horses, bullfights, and eating hot dogs by the beach…it pretty much opened up whole worlds of new impressions to me. If you ever wonder where my appreciation for traveling comes from, it's this person.
Thank you mom!
Full moon photography in the neighborhood I used to live in.
Long time before moving there I used to read THRASHER Skateboard Magazine.
Taken in a somewhat abandoned city in the desert of Southern California. Since I don’t have a good idea for a title, I name it after my subject – who seemed positively surprised about the attention.
