Getting Published

Church of San Carlo Al Corso near Duomo, Milan Italy
I am not a professional photographer by any stretch of imagination, so I was doubly thrilled to get one my pictures published in Schmap!! Milan tourist guide. More than, getting published for which there was no monetary benefit, I enjoyed the process Schmap followed.

When they first spotted my photo in flickr, they wrote to me asking if I want my photos to be included. Once I gave them my green signal, they ensured that they have permission for the specific photo they wanted to publish. In this era of cut and paste, they could easily taken my photo without my permission. But they went through the extra steps to get permission and that's what I liked.

More of my Milan pictures here

    I feel you are being humble in terms of your photography skills. I feel you do take good pictures and I am positive the outcomes are due to your passion you had/have in this field.
