The good thing about sites like 500px is the ability to tag you images. Keep in mind, this was back in 2011 so tagging wasn't the big thing it is today where a simple Instagram showing a bucket of sand on a lawn has atleast 37 tags ... because we all know that's needed! :)
Anyways ... I decided to tag this one with the following:
And thank God (no pun intended) I did.
Finally I (maybe) get to the point!?!
Because the they did ... Warner Music ... called. Or ... at first the emailed me. I remember getting the email, reading it and thinking "this is spam".
Basically they wanted (so they wrote) to buy one of my images to use on an upcoming CD release of Händel's Messiah.
But as I said I didn't think much of it and more or less put it aside (within an already messed up brain).
But they mailed me again – this time stating that this was not spam but a legit offer to buy my Saviour image.
So Warner Music actually did call. It turned out their art-director had crawled the internet for images of the Messiah, and had come across my image – hence the tagging, remember?
So we worked out the "formalities" I ended up sending them a highres version of my image ... and the sent some "higres" money the other way :)
