TIME magazine’s Best of Asia, 2008

A few days ago I wrote about a magazine client calling up and asking if I had any stock images of the Reunification Palace in Ho Chi Minh City (formerly Saigon). I did, and quickly supplied them with an online lightbox to select from on my Digital Railroad archive. Incredibly easy and efficient. That client was TIME magazine, and the image was used in the this week’s issue, The Best of Asia, 2008.

I’m quite happy that an image originally shot with no real commercial intent was used, and that I’ve got an online system that makes it easy for clients to find images they need. Lesson: it’s much easier to sell images if clients can find them easily online.

  1. Congrats in getting published in Time. I’m considering joining Digital Railroad and was curious as to whether drr actually brings in new customers for you, or is it more of a distribution tool. As an example did Time find you initially through Digital Railroad or through some other means like your portfolio site, or did they already know of your work through previous sales to them? Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks…Kourosh
