Finally a Lonely Planet photographer … of sorts.
First it was the BBC, then it was the Telegraph, now it seems I’ve reached some kind of milestone on the way to travel photography greatness by stumbling across another of my photos, hidden away in the dusty archives of the China section of the Lonely Planet website. Giddy heights indeed!
I’m not sure where they acquired said photo from, but given it’s one of my microstock uploads, it’s almost certain I’ve not been rewarded anywhere near handsomely enough for its use. Still, maybe the “wait a minute. That’s my photo!” moment that I was rewarded with this morning was payment enough. Onward!
To start selling your own photos online, I recommend signing up at Shutterstock, Dreamstime and Depositphotos for starters. You can upload the same images to each site, and once they’re accepted, your first sales should not be long in coming.
