Photos needed for education project and publication...

Discussion in 'Darkroom Developing and Printing' started by Pol Guerin Ph.D, Oct 13, 2004.

  1. Metroscope research group is inviting photographers to submit any
    image about the metros around the world.

    This is a great opportunity to get published since thousands of
    images are required for the final publication.

    For info
    or to submit images

    __________________________
    oct1404 from Lloyd Erlick,

    Hello Mr. Guerin,

    I've reproduced, below, your posting yesterday (Oct.
    13, 2004) to rec.photo.darkroom, a Usenet newsgroup I
    follow. Your subject line reads, "Photos needed for
    education project and publication...".

    I'd like further clarification. Since you do not offer
    payment for the images you are soliciting, I'm assuming
    there is no money involved. Could you be explicit about
    this point?

    You also do not state that any use of any given image
    will entail proper crediting to the author. Will your
    publication contain a photographer by-line or copyright
    line for each image?

    Do you plan to publish on paper (a "book")? Is your
    publication Internet-based?

    I've tried to be brief, and I apologize if I seem
    inquisitorial. If I do, the reason is the occasional
    posting like yours, from consumers/users of
    photographs/images who wish to obtain free material at
    no gain to the creator(s) of the material. Usually, the
    gain offered is the chance to be published. You can
    understand how jaded photographers have become in this
    regard.

    The most common form lately has been from organizations
    wishing to sell stock photography through an online
    interface. Photographers are 'invited' to place their
    work for sale within a gigantic online database of
    submitted images. Some people find this alienating,
    others work with it. I find it uninteresting; I'd like
    enough information from you to know what you are doing.

    For future reference, if you intend to take advantage
    of the resources of Usenet, the sort of information I
    am seeking here should be included in your initial
    posting to rec.photo.darkroom. The underlying problem
    is that Usenet, being public, is attended by honest and
    dishonest people alike. Your posting does not contain
    enough information to enable the reader to
    differentiate. This will tend to limit the response to
    your request. Cynical observers might suggest you do
    this deliberately, because the limited response comes
    from the small percentage of suckers.

    I hope I have delineated the quandary in which you have
    placed yourself.

    regards,
    --le

    This potential spammer has not answered my email.

    I will treat them as spam.
