    Re: Photo Credit

    So, "photo credit goes to...." could be correct in some other contexts?

    Re: Photo Credit

    I've never seen "goes to" in any news article. Take a look at your local newspaper and see how they do it.

    I've seen "Photo by:" or simply "Photo:"

    There is no need for the wordy sentence.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
