Professional Photographer

I'm now a professional photographer!

Technically speaking, that is. I just received a check from Langenscheidt Publishing, who is using my photo on the cover of their latest Syracuse street map! I've had lots of people use my photos on their blogs, I've had one used in a small magazine, but this is the first photo I've ever gotten money for. And I like it. (Langenscheidt is much nicer than other companies I know.)

Now if I could find someone to pay me for every photo I take, I could retire comfortably. Any takers?

That's why I love Flickr. I've never been paid for a photo, but I've had several bloggers use mine, and I managed to sell (completely without trying) a watercolor that I based on someone else's creative-commons licensed photo!

Yeah, nobody is ever going to pay us for a LiveJournal post or a Facebook status update!

Paid blogging usually consists of surreptitious advertising... and I don't even want to think about the day when one of my dearest childhood friends will start taking $2/post to tell me their transcendental experience with ACME Corp. toothpaste...
