I must say that I totally admire this trio’s work. A very talented group of people who deserve total recognition for their hard work. I invite you to click on their names and visit their website to see more of their amazing work.
Why am I writing this post now?
I want to thank Annette Joseph
, the stylist, who brought my attention to my lack of professionalism, in not providing the proper credit for the photos. I am thankful that she spoke out. It made me realize how often it is taken for granted that the designer, stylist, photographer’s work is there for us to use, because it is readily available on Pinterest
. This is a fallacy with Pinterest
. It is not right and needs to be corrected. We are the only ones who can correct this. Although, it has been a while since I had something photographed, due to my sabbatical while grieving, I currently have projects in the pipeline that will be photograph in the near future for the website I am creating. I wouldn’t want someone to use those photographs and not credit me.
How good are you at giving credit where credit is due?
Do you always search for the source and properly credit?
I ask all bloggers to make sure you credit the designer,
the stylist and the photographer when using their work.
I myself will strive to have more original content due to this issue.
When we don’t give proper credit, it really is taking something that isn’t ours.
The money spent on this type of work is very expensive. We all love seeing beautiful work like this and that is why we want to share it on our own blogs, when we are talking about a topic, but we do need to give proper credit!
I will never post a photograph again without properly crediting the source.
If you are a blogger, I ask you to join me in efforts to
properly credit photographs used on your blog.
