I take photographs for myself.. and my wife and kids. I probably should come up with some sort of watermark but I doubt anyone would pawn off my work as their own. If they did, I think I'd take it as a compliment. I know, when I post a photo here and people think it's good enough to comment on it.. or hit the "like" button, it gives me that warm and fuzzy feeling...sort of the same thing I get when I post process an image and I really like it.

Of course, I'm not trying to make a living from my hobby. That would be a game changer for sure.

Our Audubon Society had a raptor day where you could get up close to many of the birds they are rehabilitating or have in permanent care. Was a pretty great day to learn about birds and see these wonderful creatures... Some portraits..

Your homepage look great and your photos too, but I´m not a fan of your watermark...! Have read the tread and I see your point..., but wouldn´t do it that way.
I have just got a new logo my self..., maybe a little to small here, but....! Here in DK it is difficult to make money out of wildlife photography..., it is pure hobby for a lot of people and so the competition is hard.

I take it that was for me? thank you for taking the time to view my website, I do take on board your comments, but what I will say and is made clear in my website - I keep the original kept a side without any watermarks or signitures and slightly larger file size, incase someone wants to buy one.

Thank you for looking and your comments though;-)a

P.:-)


Some stuff.

Swallow chick hiding in a corner of a bird hide, fairly dark so I had to use the 7DIIs on-board flash, don't think I have even tried it before.
