    An Unexpected publication??

    Through flickr, America's Popular Photography magazine found one of my pictures and paid me for use of the following picture in their April magazine as part of a travel special. That was all fine but then, my friend in Iceland has recently let me know that a local newspaper has since used that picture as well?

    My first reaction was "Cool, I got published in Iceland!" but then , on reflection, why wasn't I notified? I'm not upset, just curious to know what people think about the legalities of photographing a magazine picture for their own publication.
    <Edit> Actually, after figuring out the page, the link was to pop photography's website with the appropriate credit and all so I guess it's all good!

    This is the link and the picture

    Wow, congratulations, that's excellent, but I'd have to save I'm not surprised with the quality of your work.

    Well done

    I guess some Icelander was excited to see a 'local' pic in an American magazine and so they publicised the link. At least it links back to your photo credited shot, and a very nice one BTW.

    Thanks John and Odille I kind of wondered why my friend's reaction was negative to begin with though lol - especially since he can read Icelandic! ( I think he had some of his flickr images of the volcano stolen by foxtel)

    Its great news and congratulations. . It is rewarding and satisfying to be acknowledged and published anywhere - Iceland included.

    BTW - when you say "unexpected" - Mongo hates to tell you but you're the only one who didn't expect it !!

    I'm not suprised Dylan. It's a wonder that a lot more of your images are not published.

    Hmmm, firstly I am not surprised your photos were selected, I have been a long term fan of your fantastic photography. Congradulations on both accounts - well deserved I think. Hmm, I see this one was with the 7D so not hire royalties for the wifes camera on this one :-) LOL.

    One thing I do find interesting is the shot was found on flickr - I assume agencies must trawl flickr much like stock sites.

    Well done again.
    Please be honest with your Critique of my images. I may not always agree, but I will not be offended - CC assists my learning and is always appreciate

    No, Flickr has an option where you can allow it to be picked up (by Getty, I think).

    But, I suppose, someone still has to trawl through and notice your photo from the thousands that get loaded up per minute.

    thanks mike ! Scotty, I think they really did just trawl flickr looking for images of the Geysir area because this photo wasn't submitted to Getty ( I don't allow them) - we literally got an email out of the blue and wondered how the heck they picked this one at random !

    Congrats Dylan, well deserved.
    I know of a few people who have received payment for images "found" on flickr. I guess its a reminder that titles and tags can be useful and may prove lucrative!!

    If you tagged it with the location detail they probably found it that way. Always a good idea to tag with the old who, what, where and when (as each is appropriate) when you can.
