Everywhere I go, I see the same

…model. As a web developer, I’ve noticed that, although many web sites appear to have happy customers brilliantly displayed on their sites using their products, most of those “customers” are actually stock photo images from sites that sell such photos.

Most of these photos are attractive, happy women holding laptops or other electronic devices. I only wonder, when a web developer may only pay $5 for a hires photo of a model to use as part an advertisement for a site that could make thousands or even hundreds of thousands of dollars, how much did the model make?

In the case of the cover on my book, the woman selling the photo was the woman in the photo. Perhaps that is the wisest course of action.
