Join The PLUS Registry

Posted on 8/17/2011 by Jim Pickerell | Printable Version | Comments (0)

Every professional photographer in the world should add his or her name to the PLUS Registry. It’s FREE. It will take a couple minutes at most. And it may help someone who wants to pay you money to find you.

In the first three months, more than 5,200 businesses from sixty countries have created PLUS Registry listings. The idea is that if someone sees your credit line and wants to license rights to use your image they can go to the PLUS Registry and quickly discover how to contact you.

Will it work? No one knows. We do know that picture researchers regularly ask for help in locating the authors of particular images. Often they can’t find the author and are unable to use the image. Will everyone who registers eventually see some benefit? Unlikely, but what have you got to lose???
