Commercial Usage of Photography


There is a problem out an about in the world today when it comes to using Photographers and images for potential commercial usage. I think most people are happy claiming stupidity and or ignorance when it comes to such things.

The advent of digital cameras has created a plethora of uneducated and self-proclaimed professional photographers who don’t understand the business of photography.

Some chose to shoot and hand over their images for free and think that they do so in trade.

Lots of start up companies want to use images to create wealth at the cost of a photographers personal copyright and many are ill-informed about the choices being made with respect ,or lack there of, when it comes to image development and protections.

here is a link and story that may open a few eyes and it will help to get this conversation going. Please Do not underestimate the value of usage and the art of photography.
