I'm very happy to announce that I've been recently invited to be contributing photographer for Getty Images. Getty Images is an online database collecting media (Stock Photographs, Graphic Designs, Video Clips, and Music) to sell to advertising companies and a like. Stock Photography are commonly used in Web-based advertisements, billboards, magazines, prints, products, announcements, Posters, etc.etc.
Like any other contributing photographer, the process of submitting photos for approval in Getty Images is a grueling task, there are important legal forms you have to submit along with your photos. :( The reality of working for something and getting something in return)
I noticed that most of my travel photos have recognizable faces of strangers I didn't even get to meet, this is a problem because in order to sell a photograph for advertising, a photographer will need to secure a "model's release form" which in my earlier photography days I did not bother paying attention to. This upsets me because Getty Images chose a lot from my previous work where I don't have access in securing a "model's release form". Anyway, it is a Lesson learned and from now on I will try to secure this model's release form as often as I can.
I've been contacting my friends and family to sign models' release form and so far its been going well for my submissions. Thank you very much guys!
THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR MAKING MY PHOTOGRAPHS LOOK AWESOME!
This is a great honor to be invited in a prestigious and biggest Stock Photography Source on the Internet today. I AM VERY HAPPY!
