UPDATE: SUN APRIL 14, 2013
What I place in my gallery is just that, MY gallery! At times photos may not be to everyone's liking. I only ask that you be respectful and shy away from any personal attacks and follow the Etiquette Policy.
See link: [link]
As much as I appreciate those who enjoy my work, and I enjoy sharing, I don't believe or like the fact that people like to add ALL my photos to their pages. This is NOT necessary to do so and also adds to the likelihood that I WILL DELETE, without hesitation, any given one photo OR entire folder. I find this behavior also EXTREMELY suspicious! SO I KINDLY REQUEST, PLEASE CEASE adding every single/and or all image/s I have in my gallery
I continue to appreciate your support and cooperation in this matter.
ALL IMAGES; in my portfolio are protected by copyright. They are NOT public domain. They may not be posted to blogs (Tumblr, etc.), websites, reproduced in printed materials or otherwise used without my written permission. NO PHOTOS; are to be used without the express consent of this photographer IN WRITING. If found without consent, such violation will be prosecuted. Any photo manipulation of any sort is also prohibited. I retain ALL legal copyrights, originals and documentation.
En lieu of recent events, I'm forced, in order to protect photos, place a more prominent watermark on all photos and images will be smaller. Thanks to those who ruin the joy of Deviant Art for all.
Thanks to all my supporters, followers and friends.
PHOTOGRAPHERS FOREWARNING: (Just heard from a good friend on DA)
This DA Member: Opeliz- [link] is photo manipulator AND MALE PHOTOS THIEF!
He REMOVES logos and copyrights from other photographers, web and websites, that he STOLE FROM and claims to be his own work after altering them and/or renaming the model in the photo to make it represent he knows them and he took the photo! I've reported to DA and also to two sources of the sources he stole from. One a great photographer and also from a well known gay website who have copyrights in place and an attorney on board for THEFT and COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT!
