We caved… for a reason

A few days ago I was driving home from work, and I heard this story come across the wire on NPR:

If you are a photographer with high-quality images posted on Yahoo’s Flickr service, you may soon get an e-mail message inviting you to become a paid contributor to Getty Images, the world’s largest distributor of pictures and video.

Yahoo and Getty Images said Tuesday that they had entered into a partnership under which Getty editors would comb Flickr in search of interesting images. They will then invite photographers to participate in the program and ensure that their images have the proper releases to be licensed legally. Those who are included in the program will get paid at the same rates that Getty pays photographers who are under contract with the company.

This is really exciting to me for two reasons: 1 is that Stephanie is an awesome photographer, and I think that there’s a real possibility that she could get published. And 2 is that I think ‘professional photographer’ is like #5 on my list of best jobs in the world.

So I started a flickr photostream, and we’ve slowly been adding some of our most ‘artistic’ photos.

Check it out!

What do you think is the best photo you’ve ever taken?
