All images used in any publications, such as newspapers, and yearbooks, must have a release due to contiuned abuse and failure to give proper credit. Come on people! It's free ! What more can you ask for? Don't take my work and try to pass it off as your's. Doing so, shows huge character flaws! I work really hard trying to get images into your hands, don't make me regret it. If you want a picture in your paper or yearbook, contact me so that I can give permission. I am not giving away copyrights. Perhaps, I would like a copy of the article or yearbook, or digital work that the image will be displayed in. If used on your school website, perhaps I would like to go see it. It's nice to know that people enjoy the image enough to want to reprint it. Give me the oppurtunity to see my work in your 'spot light' . But I can't do that if I am not informed, or if—(SHAME ON THOSE THAT ARE) —individauls are submitting work without giving me credit, which often implies that it is was taken by someone other than me. A photographer knows their work. Remember, I have the original image.
For the most part, I have not had a problem in this area. School websites are wonderful about giving credit! THANKS! But recently, I have been finding my trademark images "popping up." Zombies do that ya know...just when ya think its dead...and no one cares....it pops back up !!
<Frowns> Don't make me turn the zombies loose people!!! They byte, and because you have been warned, their teeth are weapons of war !
