so a quick backstory. I've recently started pushing to do more professional photography. I have my first wedding booked, I'm doing community photography projects, etc... it's all very fun and exciting and I'm very humbled and excited to see myself grow as a photographer.
Question 1: what limitations do you impose on clients regarding the sharing of your work if it showcases that person? Say I took a picture of Bob, let Bob have the pictures, and Bob posted it on Instagram without credit or watermark. How would you handle this?
Now here's where things get a little weird...
A former friend of mine used to shoot with me all the time. She got a little crazy, did some pretty sketchy things, got a little stalker-like with my boyfriend, and I decided it was best to cut ties... and I honestly did so civilly. But before all that, when we first started shooting together, she would frequently share my photos alongside hers. She wouldn't directly say "I took this" but she wouldn't say "hey my friend did this" either. I politely asked her to be more aware of how that could impact me, and she happily obliged... she started crediting me and promoting me (she's a huge social media advocate and has some odd power in advertising that way, it's mildly impressive), and I thought that was sweet. Well, time went on, events unfolded, and I had to part ways. Now she's gone to sharing my photos again without credit. But it is a photo of her that I took and that she re-edited (albeit, cropped and with a lot of saturation, ew).
Question 2: Given the weird stalkery past, should I just walk away from this? She's not even in the same state as me, she poses no threat from a business standpoint other than blatant disregard for common decency and respect, and I think I'm letting my glass of wine fuel my anger more than is fair... so what would you do?
