Oh, and asking permission, too.
We encountered this post via a social media “share” today. The image looked familiar.
It was. The original:
I’m getting tired of people appropriating my images without permission and attribution. You’re supposed to ask the photographer for permission and then accede to their wishes. They didn’t ask. They didn’t even bother to credit the image. Typical.
….Over the years in covering government and politics for this blog I’ve taken somewhere in the neighborhood of 100,000 images. Obviously most of those images don’t make it into a post, but a lot do. I tend to remember most, if not all, of the images I’ve taken (yes, even for that large a number) because, well, because. From time to time a newspaper, magazine or other news outlet will contact us and ask for permission to use my images for one of their stories. We’ve always granted such for legitimate news sources (Did you see what we did there?) provided that they credit the photographer and the blog….
