About a month ago a friend pointed me to an article which used a photograph of mine. The trouble was, this was a commercial use of my photo and while they did attribute the photo to me, my CC-BY-NC license didn’t allow for commercial use without asking me first. So, I took a chance and sent the author of the article my a $50 invoice for reprinting my photo. I didn’t ask them to take it down, I just asked that they pay me for the use.

I didn’t hear back for a week so I sent a follow-up invoice requesting that at a minimum I receive a response form them with how they planned on addressing the issue. Their response: the check is in the mail.

Lo an behold a few days later I received payment in the amount of $50. No apology, but here’s hoping that they learned their lesson.

(Thanks to Kathy D. for the heads up and I think my standard licensing fee just increased.)

Here’s my photo set from today’s celestial event. Partly cloudy leading up to totality then complete cloud cover for the totality hence the dramatic change in photo quality at that time. The clouds completely cleared out toward the end so that’s where the best photos are.

The one and only wedding photography gig I’ve ever done. Everyone was happy with the results but man was it a lot of work. 22 September 2012.

To the asshat who felt the need to flip me off for driving 65 in the right lane, when there were two other completely open lanes, I give you this photo…
