MY NEWS AND ESCAPADES

Image Theft of my Koala Shot 2020

Written by 

This shot of mine taken back in the 2019 bush fire on Kangaroo Island which won the Big Picture Awards in 2019 has been stolen time and time again now and misused and used without my permission. Since these bush fires It has been used on go fund me pages and newsletters chasing money and facebook posts again chasing donations. My images are not to be used for monetry gain of any sort unless its being paid for and under a licence. I have been abused contacting people and pages in the past few weeks to take it down or cop a bill for usage. I doubt you would appreciate your possessions being taken without permission and misused so why is it expected that I should be happy about people using my images for what ever purpose they want without my permission or payment just because I won an award for it and its been strewn all over the internet and because its of a bushfire. I dont know about you but I expect to get paid for my work and its hard enough to make a living out of landscape photography as it is but this copyright theft and peoples attitude has got to stop. I now use a copyright company to help me chase down images that have been stolen which takes the pressure and stress from me. So if you have me shot I suggest you take it down because we are on the war path at the moment and if we can get Sky News to pay up we can get you too.

This image has been purchased for multiple uses by WWF Australia who understand that payment is necessary to photographers for their images to make money for their fund. Thank you WWF.
