We’ve all heard it at some point, “it’s just a photograph”. Many of us in the business know what it takes (the time, effort, resources) in order to create “just a photograph”; releasing the shutter is just the first step in the creative and technical process. Delivering the final image via either print or web is usually the result of a lot of hard work. Please respect this by not infringing upon our copyright, or the copyrights of any photographer or artist for that matter.
