Over the past 60 days, I have seen some of my photos edited by others. I share these photos with the car club communities to help get the word out about my photography, I don't share them so they can be edited. My watermark is on those photos and editing them is misrepresenting my brand that I have worked very hard to create and nurture over the years.
As an artist, it's very disrespectful to change my work and my vision in way shape or form. If you feel that the photo of your car would look better in black & white, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or send me a message on Facebook and ask, I would be more than willing to convert the photo of your car to black & white or show you what the color version looks like. Please, don't go out and do it on your own.
Here's an example below.
This is the original image that I posted from the Mustangs & Mustangs show .
This is the "edited" version by someone else.
This is what it would have looked like if I had converted it myself.
Thank you for your understanding, I hope that this doesn't continue to happen, I enjoy attending the car shows that I go to and the friendships that I have made over the years. The last thing I want to do is to stop attending the shows or stop photographing cars from one club or another.
Thank you all for your support, I appreciate the likes and shares on Facebook a great deal, I also appreciate your business :)
