Credit where credit is due...

Mon Jul 21, 2014, 12:22 AM
I've wanted to share an issue that is near and very dear to my heart; crediting an artist or photographer when you share their work. I'm seeing more and more a casual disregard for the artist and her work.  As an artist and photographer my work is my life, it's who I am and how I make a living. Sharing my work to the world makes me so happy but if you share and don't link or credit you're stealing, plain and simple.

I think Christopher Burdett touches on this subject perfectly. Please take a moment to read and share.

Artist | Digital Art
Japan
I am a digital artist, graphic designer & photographer. Right now I am flexing my painting skills, hoping to further develop my own style of painting & illustrating.

Aside from my digital art I am primarily a travel photographer. I began developing my skill at about age 7, with a little blue plastic point-and-shoot film camera my parents gave me. About 10 years ago was when I began developing a real passion for photography with the influence of a close friend. I have since worked in the portrait and fashion industry but find the environments too constrictive. I like to work naturally and light on my feet. No big screens and extra flashes. Now I blog regularly about my world travel adventures.

I am blessed with a husband that provides for us and encourages my exploration in creativity. And so, here I am... exploring!
