    I received this message today. The photo was "mined" from photos at Flickr.com and I got a message saying it was short-listed and asking if I would agree to have it submitted if selected.

    I took the photo on November 17, 2007 while waiting for a train enroute to a family Thanksgiving gathering.

    Here is the link: Schmap for the iPhone

    I'm getting thousands worth of free exposure.

    Thank you CoRNDog!

    Well, it is in a guide seen by thousands?

    No. They're using his photo for free.

    Not only that,

    They also automatically assume he'll be just thrilled to let them use his picture, for free.

    Congrats. I guess.

    Sounds great but.... Is there a link so a person can buy a print or view your portfolio? If not, then all you have is bragging rights. There is no "exposure" because the public has no idea how to contact you. ;)

    Actually, when you click on my photo at Schmap.com, you are taken to my Flickr.com account, where you may contact me.

    On the other hand,who cares? :violin:

    I don't need to sell prints.
    And, I'd like to go down in history as that
    famous photographer that never sold anything.

    Nothing wrong with having a hobby, not selling your work and having your picture on that Guide. Great congratulations....really!

    But I was just curious how he was getting this "free exposure" if there is no link/watermark on the photo? :confused:

    Yeah, congrat's from me too. I once won a hundred bucks in the late 70's at a photo store contest in Denver, well actually Aurora CO. Didn't think I had a prayer. Didn't get famous, never will be, but it was a pretty cool feeling at the time. So, I can understand your elation...I doubt that the majority of people on this site get paid, except for the professionals, so my take on it is WTF? Who cares...bragging rights are o.k. too, sometimes.
