    A couple weeks ago, I was asked by a writer from B&H Photo about a firework photo I took in a small town a few years ago and they wanted to feature it on their Explora blog. It was really great working with them and kind of cool having a photo of mine featured in one of their articles. Though only us photographers typically know who B&H photo is hahaha.

    28 Photogenic Options for July 4th Fireworks Nationwide, Part 2: MI to WY

    I'm toward the bottom of the list, so you gotta scroll down to find me. It's not my favorite photo but they really liked it because they wanted to show a small town firework display in the article. I guess mine fit the bill.

    The writer found my photo on Flickr and asked if she could feature it in her article. I'll be getting a set of reflectors too because of it :D

    I'm glad you got recognition as well as compensation. They are a business and using photos helps promote their business and helps enable them to profit/make money.

    It would be a good idea to learn about contracting/licensing usage if someone wants to use your photos, so even if the compensation is merchandise the type of use and the time frame would be specified.
