Got the front cover on a print mag!

I mentioned a while ago that one of my images was being used by a local publication...

Front Cover!

I was a bit hesitant at first as no fee was involved, but the fact it was a print magazine and the extra local exposure I'd gain, made it worth some consideration. The space given to the cover credit I was promised on the inside tipped the balance, so I went ahead with it.

So here's the magazine - and there's a link to my website from this electronic version in the credit (page 3, bottom left):

The original image is a landscape orientation and they chose a great crop for the mag. Here's the original:

Click the image to see a gallery-style poster print in my Zazzle store - and from there you can see lots more gifts, posters and greetings cards of my Plymouth Series.

I know some of my fellow photographer-blogger friends also occasionally let their local publications use their work. Its got me wondering just how prevalent this is.

If you're a bit of a photog and have been approached for use of your work without a fee, share your experience with us in the comments. Who knows, we might learn something interesting!
