Flashback to that time Urban Outfitters sold my Seattle picture on canvas

Flashback to that time Urban Outfitters sold my Seattle picture on canvas

Back in late 2008, in the heart of the Great Recession, I got a message from Urban Outfitters asking to sell my photograph “Public Market, Seattle.” It was my first experience with image licensing, and ushered in a whole new aspect to my fine art photography career. I have since made many licensing deals but UO will always be the first.
