There is a common misconception of the actual definition of photo cred. One does not simply receive photo cred for pressing a button to snap a cute pic. Photo cred is given when the photographer (whether they are professional or not) sets up a picture - in other words, when the photographer SEES the picture before it is taken. When photo cred is given, the photographer has done someone a service - a service the picture subject didn't ask for, but instead one that was given to them simply because they have a great friend who wants to take cool, "Facebook prof pic"-worthy picture of them. So don't expect to get photo cred when someone asks you to take a picture or when they set it up themselves - you as a photographer must see the picture yourself.
"Hey Susie! Stop in your tracks RIGHT THERE! The way that light is placed right behind you looks awesome. Let me take a sweet pic."



"Woah, that's a really cool pic of me!"

"Thanks Susie! Just make sure you give me photo cred when you make it your profile picture."
