Folks: I just read a long long thread on this recent photography theft. Although it is up to the authorities to deal with this, we do want to say on NC Culture that we are so, so sorry this has happened..so very many of these photographers share with us, we feel like we know them personally, and they have always been very generous with their shares, and in allowing us to include in our weekly rou…ndup. so if you do see a photo that you think is someone else’s work, but has had a watermark, etc removed, please let the photographer know so she or he can deal with it..apparently the damage done by this person is pretty massive, and it is obvious there is going to be a lot of fallout over this one. And it may well affect the quality of shots we get to enjoy on Fb, as we already know some photographers have either taken down or are in the process of taking down their albums..it is a shame they are being forced to such measures, but this IS their livelihood, and they need to protect it. You can always easily report a suspicious photo being passed off as someone else’s by just sending an email to the photographer..most of the ones we enjoy here have email addresses listed on their “about” page, so folks can reach them for info about a desired print, okay?
