Everyone is entitled to their own view. I am just voicing mine.
|Pictou County mill, 2013|
Recently, there was an article in the newspaper about a group asking for images showing the impact of the mill. An exhibition is planned for the end of September.
I sent in this photo which I took in July 2013 when we were visiting the North Shore, and it was accepted into the exhibition. The photo would be printed in a large format (3 feet by 2 feet) with a 100 word statement that was submitted by me.
The photographers had to agree that their photos "may be used for publicity purposes".
Okay. No problem...I agreed....as long as photo credit is given when the photo is used. Right?
Photo credit would be given at the exhibition but not when used for publicity purposes, and I had to agree to give up "all rights" to my photograph.
Huh? I don't think so. I withdrew my submission yesterday.
I'm not sure why everyone thinks it's okay to use someone's photo without photo credit. That is not cool. (see my previous post about this issue here: Yellow Chairs on the LaHave) Not only is it not cool, it's extremely frustrating. And that's why you see ©Sara Harley on my blog photos now.
