My pictures travel around the web

Every now and then, I like to Google search my name. I used to just look for rank placement of my website. I am proud to say that if you Google search “Max Gersh,” my website is the first to appear.

Recently, I have followed the pages a bit deeper to see where my name and pictures are showing up. I have found my pictures being displayed on sites all over the web.

I first noticed this after I took a snow feature that has nearly become viral in the sporting world.

By no means do I consider this a “great” photo but it sure has stirred up Cardinals/Cubs rivalry. Both published versions of my shot made it on Urban Prankster. I appreciate the second commenter, Melissa. “There could not be better photography in this world.” I might disagree but thank you.

Again, both versions of my photo appeared on a baseball site called Home Run Derby. Another baseball site called Ball Hype ran one as well. And Yard Barker. And Sportsnipe. And MLB USA. And PopFi. And The Large Morning Show in the Afternoon. And so on.

Let’s not forget that it was first published on the St. Louis Post-Dispatch’s Website.

The most supprising link for the Cubs Suck photo was the Chicago Sun-Times. Their blogger, Kevin Allen (a Mizzou grad), thought the message in the snow was a bit harsh. I find it funny because I don’t even like baseball.

Another photo of mine I found on the web was one I shot in Rolla, MO of the Discovery Channel filiming a new show called The Detonators.

The story and photo were picked up and ran in the Springfield News-Leader and the Kansas City Star.

I also found a portrait I shot of an environmental economist on the McClatchy-Tribune wire.

As I dug deeper, I found a photo I shot of the Delmar Loop on a blog called Bad Black Girls.

On top of that, I found endless links to my work at the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, the Alton Telegraph, my personal website and my blog.

My web presence is constantly changing. It is interesting to see who picks up your work and who reads what you write.
