I share my photos under a ‘Creative Commons’ licence which you can access at the bottom of any page on this blog.
And I don’t watermark my images for a variety of reasons.
The main ones are:
- I hate looking at watermarked images myself so I imagine other people will feel the same.
- I want people to enjoy the art without distraction.
- Creative Commons and Watermark free images allow more people to use my images and hopefully in time give me more exposure.
- ‘Hob Goblins’ do steal images but decent people and bona-fide companies don’t. For now I am prepared to take the risk.
