Reader’s Photos Published in New York Times

Fellow reader Elizabeth Chute started the Turn Your Pictures into Cash Program about two years ago. Since then, she has sold her photos to some pretty impressive publications.  Here’s the note she sent us…


Dear Lori,

I haven't written in quite a while, but thought I should bring you up to date on what has been happening in my life.

I signed up for the Turn Your Pictures into Cash program approximately two years ago, and within the first couple of weeks had already had a photo on the front page of my regional newspaper.

Since then I have gone on to have photos published in the New York Times, National Wildlife Federation Field Guide to Trees, and National Geographic Kids with reprints in Africa, Germany and the Balkans… and just lately Pearson Education has used a photo in two of their texts, and another image of mine has been chosen for a book cover in the Netherlands.

Thank you for getting me started and especially for helping me to know what to look for in a good camera.
