Mount Rainier for Mountain Monday

    I made this photograph on my way up the Skyline Trail during 2013 in Mount Rainier National Park.  A lot of the Lupines along Edith Creek were in bloom, and this made a nice foreground for Mount Rainier.

A great post about ethics and photography.  A few weeks ago I pointed out to a photographer who was bragging about hopping fences to make photographs in closed areas that this was not simply a safety issue (which was the aspect he brought up). Such actions can also have environmental impacts, and that is also why some of these signs exist. The histrionic aftermath of my pointing this out is likely still ongoing, but I couldn't help but think of it when reading this great post about ethical behaviour and photography.

Mount Shuksan and Belt of Venus

Found this via +Alexander S. Kunz.  This is a good reminder that your work has value, even on the occasions that others won't want to pay for it.  My first free request years ago was turned into a $350 license.  You'll never get paid if you don't ask for it.  Even on the rare occasions I've given images to causes I believe in - I send them an invoice that shows what their license would have been, then discount it to zero.

As Pixsy pursues copyright infringements for you (though I use ImageRights for the majority of my cases) I also record free image requests.  Some of those wind up just taking the image and using it anyway.  I often ask those people for money too, and many wind up paying once they've been caught.   If you don't give your work any value, why should anyone else?

</rant>  :)

Received yet another free photo request?

Here’s how you handle it and get paid. Story from Pixsy founder >> #photographytips #photomarketing
