Nutley Bagel Boy. Mike is the owner. But I think that depends on the last time you were in there. :)

Yeah. He calls me handsome every time I go in. So I know he's a liar.

Ok, just got off the phone with the show. Not really a big deal--i.e. not money in it. As it's gonna be on the screen for a few seconds showing this guy is a professional MMA fighter. I am asking for (at least) some credit. He mentioned they don't typically do that but I don't think I'm asking for much.

Usually, credit like this is worthless to me. But it wouldn't hurt for me to be able to say my photography has been featured (ok, a little exaggeration) on a national show like The Cake Boss. Probably wouldn't hurt my wedding business either. ;)

He's going to ask the powers that be but I can't imagine it's a big deal to throw a credit on screen.

I'll keep you posted.

I will. It wasn't at Master Po's studio on the north side of Frankilin Ave, was it?

I'm surprised by this. Maybe they can hook you up with some of their canolis?

No, Jerry Jones (was on Franklin Ave).

I'm not totally surprised but not terribly happy about it.

Personally, I don't like canolis but my wife does. :)

Seriously? If the image isn't worth anything why are they having it in the show?
Also are all the other people helping to make the show (producer, director, camera etc) working for free? If not why are you?

They are seriously suggesting you let them use the image for free and without credit? Not that credit is worth anything - if they are gracious enough to give you credit it will be buried in the end credits as they wizz up the screen faster than anyone can view them.

Yeah, I've thought more about it--talked to others about it--and told them they have to pay to use my photos. I'm waiting to hear back from them. I'll be a little surprised if they come back and say they'll pay me.

Just an update. I told them what I'd be willing to take in payment for the use of my photos...I have not heard anything back from them. This was almost a week ago.

I guess they--like so many others--figure they can get photography for FREE while they pay their producers, camera people, writers, etc.

:::sigh:::

Good job sticking to your guns. +1 good karma for you.

Thanks. It's just frustrating. I (sort of) can understand when an individual wants our work for free (not that I agree with it) but, when a major TV show doesn't want to pay a few bucks, that's really ridiculous.

Oh well, I wasn't surprised.

Sorry it didn't work out but glad you stood your ground. Days of doing it for credit are over for me as well. My time is just as valuable as anyone else's.

Yeah, definitely, way to stick to your guns. So what if they were to use your photo for an intro? Itd be on the screen for like half a second, you probably wouldn't have a big 'Credit - some cool guy that gave us this photo for free/super cheap' on the image itself, you'd get buried at the bottom of the credits (if even that), so it would probably be more frustrating than beneficial.

It's even worse than that. They wouldn't even give credit. LOL!
