When I got my royalty statement from Getty Images last week, I was pretty excited. Not only was it my highest-grossing month to date with 10 sales, but it had some pretty interesting-sounding buyers: a couple of European ad agencies, Microsoft (!), and Macleans magazine. I was particularly curious about the Macleans one, not only because it paid a pretty penny. Not in my wildest dreams could I picture a more awesome use than this!
See that bottom-centre photograph of the skaters? I took that one on my lunch break on a freezing but brilliant day back in January!
Talk about proud Canadian moments!
And I found this one, too, which isn’t nearly as awesome but interesting nonetheless:
I tell you, between having a picture of Lucas and Willie used to support the concept of “cutest kid/pet picture ever” and Macleans using this one to define the ultimate Canadian moment, Getty has been doing as much to boost my ego as line my pocketbook!
So you think this qualifies to enter as a “Proudest Canadian” moment?
