Signed Pictures

Some people just don’t get it. This week, someone contacted me and wanted to use my pictures without my permission. They wanted me to remove my name on my pictures. They said it made it very difficult for them. I was astounded but calmly explained things. There are many reasons why I put identifying information on my pictures. It helps people contact me when they want permission. The number helps find the picture among the thousands I take every year. It helps give credit where credit is due. Artists sign their work. News organizations usually put their logos and a byline on their work. Organizations hosting press events usually have a speaker with their logos visible on a screen in the background. Reasonable people understand this.
