Rated 5 out of 5 by from Going Pro! I found the information very helpful on how to get started in selling images to go pro. They gave examples of forms, contact information for the internet, web sites, addresses and phone numbers. How to fill out the forms and what should and should not be included when obtaining copywrite and licensing your images.
