For the second time in as many weeks I’ve received an email request for permission to use photographs I’ve posted to the web in other media.
First it was a request to use some of my photos of the 2004 U.S. election in the film Who Kidnapped My Vote.
Today came a request to use some of my photos of the Grand Canyon in the next edition of Landscape Architecture: A Manual of Site Planning and Design.
I’m fairly confident that I’m not a good photographer. And I’m certainly not religious about taking and posting photographs. In both cases I’ve given the okay to use the photos. Makes me wonder what would happen if independent pro photographers started exposing their entire stock library to Google.
