was it used as an add for something?

Sure he can claim copyright for the collage... he just can't sell it as stock photography. But he can sell it as advertising, design, or art.

I don't want to be a doubter, but are you sure they're your jellyfish on there? I can't quite see at this resolution, but they do look a little bit different to me. How did you find the collage with your images on?

I don't think all of them are mine. Hard to tell. Some were turned or changed. Some look like mine, so don't.  Fotolia gives you info on who bought your shots. I assume he bought others as well.

Wasn't really asking anything, just thought it was odd.

Sorry to disappoint you dbvirage because you are a great person, but that photo doesn't use the your photos that you point to. I ran a comparative program that says that you're photos are only a 10% match to the photo. So, there is a 90% chance that you are not the father.

Wow! DNA paternity tests on photos   :)  That's a new one on me.

There was just a Supreme Court ruling about tranformational art that allowed the use of a photograph.  There was another one a few years ago that made an artist pay the photographer.

One of the key issues is whether the artist has made things available before, etc. etc.  Puttin an image out there for sale means you are giving up a lot of control. Since the stock license agreements are pretty loose, it's probably legal.

Sorry, YY, just now saw your reply. They don't look much like anybody's jellyfish, but that's cool. They paid for them, they can use them or not.

Got another one though. Haven't found the mag, but the graphics artist for the mag contacted me.

I wanted to shoot some houses as I had one that sells one. Found a nice neighborhood and shot 15 houses. Generic looking, slight variations from house to house. For some reason, one of them sells many more than all the rest combined.

Anyway, this mag wanted a picture of a generic looking house that looks like it might be in Atlanta, so they go to Istock - a Canadian site as you know. She finds my house - no reference to Atlanta or any indication it was shot here.

The distribtution of the magazine is to the part of the city that I live in and the house is located. Guess what? The owner gets a copy of the mag and calls the mag. She contacts me via email with the file ID to ask me if there was any chance the house was the one in question.

At any rate, it created a good contact and possible future work with the mag.

I lost my dog, Buddy, a few months ago to cancer.  He was such a good dog.  We got another puppy shortly after.  I was missing Buddy tremendously and wanted to get out of the house so I took the new puppy to Petco.  At the checkout counter, there Buddy was, smiling on the cover of a book.  It was awesome, I got over the loss that night.  Credits were given to me/Shutterstock and also two other people from Shutterstock for inside images.  (He wasn't even full Golden Retriever)

Sorry to hear of your loss, but it is good to see that his spirit carries on.

HEY TYLER/LEAF -  I can't figure out how to insert an image... I'll try to attach a pdf....  wish me luck.

The inside of this flyer isn't entirely original they wanted it styled off their old ones...  still a bit of fine tuning but almost ready to go.  Downloaded one of your images bottom right...   Sorry, old credits.  Won't even be enough to buy a real cappuccino - but thought you'd like to see!

I know, I know... if I was a "real" stock photographer I would have shot these images instead of purchasing them.  Sigh.

Today on Luckyoliver's blog I found a photo they used on coasters in their loot bags .  I've never had success inserting photos so here's a link to their blog in case it doesn't work again...   How fun to see one of my pix in use!

First time I see a usage. Actually it is in the IS designer spotlight.

Would you try to contact the agency/ customer for a sample/ reference? Not sure what the "industry standard" is here?

Here is a small portion of what I have come across in use over the past couple years. I have lots more print stuff that I need to scan and add to my IN USE GALLERY if I ever manage to find the time.

Bobby:

Congrats.  You have some fantastic shots.  Most of us are striving to join you in the limelight one day.

This hotel, shot in San Juan, Puerto Rico,



was used here for events in Zurich and Lugano

I wonder what the real accomodations looked like.

I hope this is only a test page because, quite frankly, booking a hotel and finding out it's not at all what you saw...

Regards,
Adelaide

Found a photo I took on Ocean Beach in San Francisco while looking for, of all things, information on Ocean Beach.
