This Photograph is not free !!!

I really do like this photographers thinking. Wonder if I can use what he says as a watermark

Quote So if you’re a magazine, website, corporation, sports team, or advertiser who wishes to use this photo, please don’t come and ask to use it for free, or in exchange for credit or “exposure”. You found my photo so obviously I have “exposure”. You have an advertising budget, and this is what it’s for. You obviously don’t expect your writers to work for free, or your secretary, or your boss. No one is going to publish it for free. Just because the picture is digital doesn’t mean it was free to make.

I agree, people should appreciate what gets them quality.

I am just astounded that some folk are ready to give more money to someone who has no idea what he is doing just because he promises all sorts of wonders in his images, yet you can clearly see by their portfolio that it ain't happening.

I like Mr Ellison he says it as it is and with an obvious passion that comes through very clearly

Good links Tony and mshi. Got to agree with the sentiments expressed; it's a shame that people will value something enough to take it but not enough to respect the author's right to payment. Ho hum.
