Always glad to help…….

a Turkish fisheries biologist, Atilla Ertürk with his marketing efforts…should he ask. That Oregon trout looks darn good in a Turkish Fisheries ad! 👍

But then there is the Gauteng, South Africa trout/carp fishery (Trouthunters)…a private fishery I believe, that saw the merit of using our Oregon Trout in their ad campaign. 👍 One would think that Trouthunters had enough beautiful trout in their ponds to capture a stellar image of their own?

    You know dear Gary, I have met with you, with this amazing photograph 🙂 One of your best photographs and I love your fishes… But this is really not good how they used your photograph. I hate and get angry to hear this kind of things… They have to give credit of the photographers. You can ask them to do this or to remove your photographs. Thanks and Love, nia

      Thank you Nia…Although I don’t approve of the pirating of one’s photo’s, it really, for me, is simply asking for permission to use and I have always said yes to other people. I am, in one respect, honored they used it. Always thank you for your so very kind support. Big Hugs Nia. ❤️

    it is amazing how a person’s output can migrate.

    I do some subpar 3d work. I posted a few on a Japanese website, a year later my son showed me a website selling it as phone screen art.

    the thing is…sometimes a person’s ideas aren’t actually stolen. they just seem to experience a parallel development elsewhere.

    however I find it irksome when my output is lifted and represented as someone else’s. I don’t want the credit, I just don’t want that person to use it without asking.

    that would be my take.

    damn thievin’ pirates!

    they really have no shame’
    if you haven’t registered a copyright it seems there is no way you can stop them .

    though other photographers have used takedown notices to block search results.

    it has always been an excellent image and i’m sure the thieves think the exposure on a larger stage will be good for your career. (ALERT…minor level of facetiousness)

      Ha! I know! I was more tongue in cheek with a not so subtle goose. I always say use a photo. Like to here about it more out of respect and I like seeing the use of what I created. 🙂
