Five years ago, no one really knew EricLafforgue in the world of photography.He started taking photographs in 2006 as atraveler and published his pictures on theinternet. But his success has been startlinglyrapid. Soon after ﬁrst posting his pictureson the website Flickr he began to getprofessional commissions, and within just afew years he has come to be regarded as oneof the world’s best travel photographers.

Even the advent of today’s fast moving,ever-changing digital world of quick Webaccess, smart phones and tablet devices,is not quite well enough to explain theachievements of Eric in the world of photography. He published the pictures hetook as a traveler of places and faces on awebsite that has tens of millions of imagesand tens of thousands of photographers.But why was he to become one of the mostprominent members of Flickr attractingthousands of users in such a short time.That itself amazed the website staff andthey started looking for answers too. Theypublished the interview they made with Ericon the same website,. Yet, it didn’t provideany real answers to what was behind thisstunning success. Later on, Yahoo madeanother interview with Eric but questionsseemed to be concentrated on getting Eric’srecognition and appreciation of Yahoo’sand Flickr’s role in his spectacular success.Those questions lead to obtaining hisassurance to continue publishing and postinghis photographs on Flickr.http://www.ﬂickr.com/photosmytripsmypics/ That only demonstrated how signiﬁcantwere Eric’s photographs to one of the topthree sites on the planet, but still nothingmuch to explain what was behind Eric’samazingly rapid success.So I decided to contact Eric in search for thevaluable answer I was eager to get.
