Flickr and Getty Images

Goldfish #1
Well, well, well...a "customer" is interested in licencing my photograph of Jar Jar the goldfish which they spotted on Flickr (apparently), so Getty Images have emailed me an invitation to join their books and submit my image for final review (which I have done), wonder if my little photography hobby will turn into an unexpected money spinner?

Watch this space...! ;)

Tread wary mate, I had one of these and I bought the book but my pic wasn't in it.

It's okay, I checked it out with the guys in the office and Getty are totally legit... ;)

So was mine, it was the Tate Modern but they still didn't publish it, swines lol

I think the difference here is, they aren't asking me to buy anything, it's just someone wanting to use my picture on a website or a print ad or something, Getty take a percentage of any revenue (and in return handle all the legal side of things, managing payment and looking after my copyright), it may well come to nothing, but I can't loose anything either... ;)

Tom Hopwood said...

Definitely nothing to lose. Although I didn't have to buy the book I was prat enough to do it anyway lol. I'll show you sometime and point to the place where my pic should have been rofl.
