I joined flattr
about a month ago as an experiment; Other photographers have joined the service
as a way of generating small revenue from fans. Now, the good folks at Luceo Images have chosen my work
, China's Crowded Railways
, for their first monthly flattr bar tab giveaway. My admiration goes out to Luceo for their efforts to support other photographers, and I'm honored to have been a recipient of some of that support. In that month, I've received about 40 other flattr clicks, ranging from a few cents to a few dollars apiece. The viability of micropayments as a funding source for photography remains to be seen, but everything's got to start small.
