The sad state of stock photography.
I remember when I saw this image on the advertisement for flights to Newquay, quite excited to see a picture in use. I emailed the model a copy, and he’s already seen it at Newquay airport.
So then the next question is, how much did I earn from my image in a national ad campaign? drum roll . . . . .
$0.78, so about 50 pence.
Stock Photography, get rich quick : )
