352 of Ryan Somma‘s Creative Commons Science and Nature Images appear in Wikipedia articles. (228 credited as Ryan Somma, 124 as ideonexus). One could argue by sharing his photos, Ryan is helping to educate and inspire.

Well, *I*, Vicky Sawyer, now have a claim in the realm of education and knowledge as well! I have zero pictures in Wikipedia… but I *do* have a photo in the Winter 2010 Issue of American Forests magazine! My photo appears in an article on the “Continuing Saga of the American Chestnut”:

Vicky’s Picture in American Forests!!!

It’s a wonderful and informative article that definitely does not need my picture to be interesting. Be sure to check out the full version online!

    Very cool! Must be a great feeling to be published.

    Thanks Robin! “Published” is indeed a nice word, but right now I’m more enamored with the phrase, “contributing to the world of forestry”. At least that’s what I’ve been using when I tell relatives the news. 🙂

    So, uh, now that you’re a published photographer, are we all gonna have to start paying to access your website? 😉

    Hahah, nah. I don’t want to lose one of the perks I have now. I think it is easier to get permission to use photos because I get to say, “My blog is a personal one– I do not make money off of it.”

    Of course, I’ve never scientifically tested to see if people are more likely to say No if it were a commercial blog…. 🙂
