Personal Quote: My work is not stock. I have agreements with the models that allow me to distribute their images.
Interests
... and I don't necessarily support it in the various ways the entertainment industry abuses it. It is certainly more often used to protect conglomerates than creative artists.

But taking me to task because you either don't think it should be that way, or you just don't believe me, is kind of missing the point.

If you think I'm wrong about what the law says, go do your own research and satisfy yourself that you're right ... all I tried to do was make people aware of the issues. You can choose for yourself to what degree you're going to let the opinions of others affect what you create.

I don't give out my work as stock because I committed to each model that I would control how they were presented.

My work is mostly nudes; the models want to have confidence that their images won't show up on adult products, and that has actually happened several times.

There are a large number of rather brave nude stock models here that encourage others to use their images. They have given you permission. My models have not.

The models have found and shown me numerous examples of people unknown to me appropriating their likenesses in often crude and sometimes downright nasty ways. I am NEVER going to approve of someone trampling on THEIR rights and it has nothing to with my Copyright.

I like them better than I like you.

Absolutely beautiful, mesmerising work...I could have 'fav'd' the whole gallery.

Do you shoot in a tank/pool or are they all done in the sea?

I was hoping to find original and exciting photographers to work with when I joined DA...and all the ones like yourself that intrigue me seem to be in the US...damn!...I might need to book a trip one day!
