- Your photos are fabulous! I am so sorry that people are stealing your images. That makes me so angry!!! I only reblog and upload photos with proper sourcing to the original artist and I never alter the image in any way. Unfortunately, I see photography theft so often. I wish there was something more that we all could do. Thanks so much for sharing your artwork and I look forward to reblogging in the future :)
Thank you and appreciate your support!
New to tumblr, I have shared my images in good faith with Tumblr community. I appreciate the love received so far and I am glad some of my images have inspired you to travel and explore this world. With all the good that Tumblr community offers, there are few bad apples that ruin it for everyone. In only two months, several of my images have been stolen and presented as their own including their own watermarks (http://max.az/index.php?post_id=3993&rnd=1394395040). I am absolutely horrified to find my work on other blogs and website without proper attribution. I didn’t believe in watermarking my photos, but seeing the blatant abuse, I am now seriously considering them. I wish Tumblr would allow an easy way to imbed watermarking or hyperlinks that are not removable. What are you thoughts on this issue? As an original content provider, have you experienced this and what have you done about that?
Please read below for update on purchasing my images.
500px has selected several of my pictures for their Prime marketplace. The license fee per photo is set at $250 (non-exclusive use) . As part of the non-exclusive arrangement, multiple buyers can use an image as they please. Although I never started photography with an intent to make money, I have recently bought new cameras and lenses and I would like to cover cost for some very expensive gear.
Since I have received several inquiries from followers about purchasing, and recognizing that the pricing on 500px might be a little expensive for some, I am posting these images here at a significant discount. Instead of the normal price of $250, the price for each picture is $150. This will entitle you to receive the original file that can be enlarged for a modest price through many online printing services($50-60$) and all other rights under non-exclusive license use. I have several of these in my home in 30x40 size (with appropriate dpi for enlargement) and they look great. If you are interested in any of these images (or any other from my archive on Tumblr) you can send $150 to my Paypal account (firstname.lastname@example.org). When payment is received, I will send the full resolution digital image to your email. If you reblog this, please respect my post and keep all the pictures, tags and captions intact. Thank you for all the support! Peace and Love to all.
