Getty Images just announced that blog sites now have access to post their images via an embed at no cost at all. Like free 99. I was shocked! Will this stop thieves? Will this help sales/promotion? How much will content creators rejoice? "For the past decade or so, the best d

I get requests often from agencies, individuals etc asking me for permission to use my photos for various projects. More often than not, the request come with the following line "I don't have a budget but will give you credit." When I read that bit, it's a wrap. I don't need cr

I met Damian Furtch last month in New York while I was at that Patricia Field party that I posted about recently. When he saw my camera, he asked if I could take a photo of him and his friends. Then next thing I know, he asking me to take all these other photos. Jokingly, I sai

Just last week, I was talking to a friend about posting images online and how there is no real way to protect your work from being stolen once you publish it to the world. As an artist, I mos def want my work to be seen by as many people as possible, but I want to be the one wh
