Photo Published in Book!

posted on 26th of december, 2011

I am excited to announce that I have discovered that one of my photos was used in a book, Frommer's Far & Wide: A Weekly Guide to Canada's Best Travel Experiences! I found out about it in the photo credits through a Google search.

The annoying thing is that I don't even know which photo they used! However, based on an analysis of my sales, this photo seems to be the most likely one. I sold a P-EL license of this image, but what confuses me is that the sale was around the time they published the book. And the book probably had been in the design process months prior. Maybe they purchased the photo under a RF license for the design process then repurchased the photo when it was published.

I just sent an email to the publisher requesting the page with my photo, but I don't know if they'll send it to me.

Thank you everyone! What surprised me is that I found my first picture in use in a book, not on a website or in a magazine. It was definitely a pleasant surprise! Still haven't heard back from the publisher....

In order to use an image to illustrate and visually enhance the pages/cover of a book, one needs to download it under the standard Royalty free license. No P-EL is required unless the image is the main content and focus of the book, which I doubt is the case here. So it could actually be any of your images :). Maybe they'll send you a copy of the book.

Congratulation. How nice it should be to be published like that.

I also hope you will have a feed back from the publisher!

About me

Whether the subject is a soaring eagle, snowy Mount McKinley or a blooming Dahlia, ever since I began photography a few years ago I have discovered details through the viewfinder that I would not have seen otherwise.
