My wife was contacted by an ad agency asking to use a photo she took and hosts on flickr on their client's website. They offered to credit her with the photo on the site. I've read previously on mefi about photos used for print and posters but not for feature on a website for a corporate client of the agency. Is this standard practice? Should she worry about her rights to the photo? More inside... [more inside]

I think I am ready to begin the transition into trying to put my photography in galleries. My main question is what are the steps that artists go through to gain exposure for their work?

Photofilter: in a college history of photography class I remember seeing some slides from a color photographer who took pictures of lonely-looking people in hotel rooms. One in particular was a man, fully clothed, sitting on the edge of a bed in what was obviously a mid-price motel room. There was a sort of pale green cast to the shot. Anybody know who the photographer is?
