I don't know if this person is a member of BE but he has some amazing photos.

He even got a mention in the Daily Mail (not sure if that is a good thing or not, lol)

Love this one.

Thanks so much for sharing, Siouxie! I'm a very quiet member on here but I received a huge amount of help from this forum when deciding to move out to Canada, completing the forms, and getting my PR card.

I've also just discovered that my photos are being published in tomorrow's Times, Guardian and Telegraph (with what I believe is a full-page spread in the Guardian). So I do have a question for the forum as well, which is, does anyone know where I can find UK newspapers for sale in downtown Vancouver, or nearby?

You are very welcome and I am so pleased to hear you are a member of BE!

Your photos are absolutely amazing.

I wonder if you contacted the newspapers concerned whether they would send you a free copy or 2?

It's 'picture of the day' in The Telegraph - http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/pict...&frame=2719384

Did you give Barcroft Media consent to use and sell your photo?

The Guardian 'rights' email.


Congratulations!

Thanks again! My parents still live in the UK, so I'll be making sure they pick up a copy or two, but it would be awesome to be able to find a copy in Vancouver somewhere, especially of the Guardian:



Everything is above-board and legit with Barcroft's involvement -- they are authorised to license these photos for use in the media, and I will receive a cut of the income.

These are incredible. Can people buy your photos individually?

Where is the hill that just appears in the centre of the bottom photo? Is that on Vancouver Island?

Yes could be, looks close for something so distant. The telephoto effect I suppose. Direction is SW?
