Nice work if you can get it ?

Recommended Posts

It's the emperor's new clothes all over again... Good luck to anyone who has the brass neck to put that kind of number on their work and gets it!


I agree but he was selling it on the back of an existing major reputation as I understood it. However good our picture, of pretty much anything, will never be worth 10% as much. :(


The one exception might be if you got a unique news picture of a momentous moment. I think it was said here or another forum that Sebastian Salgado made enough from his pictures of the assassination attempt on Ronald Reagan to buy a Paris apartment and a big car... Such rare opportunities are not simply the preserve of the famous phoptographer, it is down to being in the right place at the right time and a lot of luck, and the skill and nerve  to take advantage of the moment.
