A few months ago, following a forum discussion, I have searched to find any of my photos in use on the WWW. Slightly disappointed at first, as I could only find two sites using my photos, in the time passed since then I found more, and now my list has 7 entries, with some sites using more than one photo. I am confident now that in the future, this list will grow bigger. I decided to present my current list here and try to convince the designer that use my photos to drop a line and I promise include their work in the next episodes of this kind of blogs.
The first find was this. I offered this image for the free section a few weeks before I have found it in use, so I do not know if the image was paid for or got for free, but this relatively easy find motivated me to spend a few more hours searching for others, with less results... Seems like I cannot provide the image's thumbnail if belongs to the free section... Anyhow, here is the link...
The second one I have found it on some discussion forum
... and it is my most downloaded image on dreamstime (left image).
On the right, is a night shot of the new part of Imperial Palace in Vienna
which I found to be featured in several websites created and maintained by w247
webdesign company like travaul.com
. There are several other photos of mine featured on their articles, and most of the pictures I think I have seen in Dreamstime's database, so it might be interesting for you (as a photographer) to check it out...
From my travels in Budapest, I have also found one image of the famous Chain-Bridge
(left) featured in an article about the city on Budapest Hotel Hungary
. Here the credit line clearly features Dreamstime agency and my name.
I have also found an image of my hometown, Timisoara (well, actually not my hometown, but my university city and where I have spent more than 7 years of my life up to now). My picture of Unirii Square
is featured on the Romania Tourism
web-page for US (the third photo as you scroll down).
Well, this is it for now... I hope I will be able to find more in the near future and make another post about the subject. If you are a designer and used one of my images for a webpage, please drop me a comment and I will include your site on the next blog-post about my photos in use...
