Ive had one of my railpics images published in the Online article of the February 2011 issue of trains(photo below). Then ive had a few published in NRHS newsletters. Nothing really to fancy. More proud of the my publishings that are none train related. Ill just post one of those seems how this is strictly a railroad related publishing post.




A Hooters(the resteraunt) online article about the young guns of the hooters modeling world.

I had this shot on the cover of some lame magazine in early 2010. Can't even remember the name of it.

No, this is much simpler. Here's a clue...a light went off in my head when I finally thought of what to use as a hood.

I don't submit images to publications, but the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority used this one on their Web Site and K Line in Singapore used one of my port shots on their site.

I've had a few more requested, but not used by the magazines.

Many thanks for all the help and advice from this forum.

Photoshopped version of this one was in Lionel's 2009 Signature Catalogue:

Interestingly, they used it without my permission. They did pay up after I called them on it, though.

I think this is my most well-known image, published in the 2011 calendar of the International Railway Mission as the Photo of July and sold all around Europe:


In this year's calendar there are striking rail+landscape shots, great photos from the Alps in Switzerland, medieval cityscapes with trains, so they asked for my photo because it had a nice, small and subtle building in it.

Nice shot. It is keeping good company, there are some nice shots in that calendar, I especially like February and December.

I don't have anything published in magazines, but I do have one non-RP photo that is used for a banner for a radio show website (show isn't live yet, so I can't disclose the website).

I took this photo and it was chosen for the cover of the 2011 Union Pacific calendar. That calendar apparently already sold out, so the cover must have really sold 'em. (My wife thinks they just didn't print as many).

This thread does give me some ideas as to what else is out there, though. It would be nice to branch out a little.

How'd UP find it? And for the benefit of others - do they have a set rate or was it something debated. If you care to share?

Great shot, BTW! I can see why it made the cover.


Bombardier contacted me via RP asking for this image:



No price was offered so I started the offer at $300 and they came back with $150.00 which I accepted - in cash, no less.

Mitch, thanks for the complement. I saw an ad in the back of Trains magazine requesting submissions to be considered for the calendar. I had a few UP shots so I sent them in. Simple as that, and they had a preset figure of $250 for an accepted shot. It wasn't the money that fired me up though, the honor will be tough to match. They are still taking submissions until the end of February for next years calendar. I'm trying to get a few more copies of the 2011 calendar because my grandmother is rather excited about the accomplishment and she lives just outside of Mojave where that shot was taken, so friends of hers are enthused to see that their area was featured and they wanted copies.

Your question is similar to the question that came to me as a result of this thread, and that is how to submit to these various publications. Do you just send in a bunch of stuff and if they use it they pay you or do you find out what stories they are doing and send in relevant photos? A lot of published stuff has different requirements than what RP wants, so some shots that would not get on here could still be valued by other publishers and such. Maybe Chase could shed some light on the process?

I waited and contacted the Amtrak guy to see if it had been used actually yet, but the briefing hadn't been published yet.
