If you are a photographer who publishes photographs and if you have NOT yet registered with Access Copyright, you may be missing out on some additional income. Each year, I fill out my Claim Form before May 31 and receive a payment in late fall for the photographs and writing that have been previously published. You may claim for publications going back 20 years.
Refer to my previous blog post for additional info on Access Copyright.
The attached photograph is from an article I wrote and illustrated for Outdoor Photography Canada Magazine back in 2014. It features a morning sunrise made at my parent's cottage on Tilton Lake in Subbury, Ontario. Whenever I see this image, I can see in my mind's eye, my dad sitting on the bench sipping his morning coffee watching me work! Photographs can be bring forth very strong emotional feelings of people you love or that have passed on, as well as bring back wonderful memories of times gone by.
