Watermark Complaint, Celebrity Protocol and More Hot Topics on theLoop!
When was the last time you were on theLoop? If you are trying to remember, you should probably head over to see what everyone's buzzing about.
As an exclusive PPA member-only forum, theLoop is a great place for photographers to connect with each other, share information/advice, get image feedback, and overall - a place to go if you need help. This is one of the many great reasons to join PPA today!
Lots of great discussions have been happening, so here are a few of the top posts from the first half of October.
This Looper wants to know if there's anything wrong with putting your logo or watermark on a purchased image. Apparently, a customer expressed his displeasure with the photographer's logo being on the images he paid for. Even if you don't have an opinion on this, you have got to check out the interesting and insightful feedback from fellow photographers so far!
Who would you contact to find out if a company needs headshots of their staff? This Looper is asking if the Human Resources or PR departments are appropriate contacts for this cause. What do you think?
If you are thinking of travelling with your gear anytime soon, this Looper has some tips for you based on personal experience - and coming from someone who flew over 50 hours through 8 airports in 6 countries on 3 different continents, you may not want to ignore this one!
This Looper wants to change their website, but isn't sure what website company to go with. Do you know any? If not, you can certainly find some in the responses given so far.
Have you photographed a celebrity before? If so, this Looper is wondering if accepting a "trade" to use her images,with due credit, on their website and social media with thousands of followers, instead of payment is a great idea. Is it?
And there you have 'em, the top posts from theLoop! Check them out, provide some feedback, and perhaps even learn something new! Be sure to visit theLoop frequently as new discussions are posted daily.
