But to really quantify a photographer and his/her images would be regardless of where they were captured would be from like minded photographers. Or to put it another way, critiques from your peers.
Being published does say something about ones work I suppose, but does it say that you had a product at the right price for what a buyer was willing to pay. I suppose that it might depend on the media your work was published in. Local newspaper or world wide magazine.
