Got licensed

I have a good news; one of my images was recently licensed (RM) by Deborah for use on her blog at; below is a screen shot of the blog featuring my image. The original image can be viewed here (or here). This was shot on a moving train on my trip to Gokarna with my BWS gang. The model featured here is Shreelesh; he is one of my good photographer friend and partner in crime in most of the photography trips we go.


This image was sold in par with market rates and has been licensed for online use for 2 years for the blog under RM license. I would like to request the same to everyone don’t under sell your work and make it difficult for other pro photographers out there and never give images for free or for credit or for publicity unless they are a non-for-profit entity like a NGO.
