Did you take a photograph of a famous person in a budget store? Or perhaps they were out for a jog? Or were they somewhere else unusual? Well, you can sell your photos and videos or celebs right here.
A woman was shopping in Costco in Mountain View, California when she spotted Facebook mogul Mark Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan. Amazingly, the billionaires were bargain hunting alongside her in the TV aisle.
How to sell a photograph of a famous person
The shopper snapped a photo of the tech billionaire. Realising she had captured a photograph of a famous person, which could be worth money, she sent it to Talk to the Press.
Talk to the Press sold the photo as an exclusive to TMZ. We later placed it into The Daily Mail Online, The Sun and many other media outlets around the world. Here are just a few versions of the story:
