Hello, Lovely Annenberg Friends!
My heartfelt thanks to you all for attending Sunday’s lecture at the Annenberg Space for Photography. Gorgeous digs there, eh? I hope you are fully recovered, and enjoying your 400-page, connect the dots tome that accompanied you home.
I also thank those who sent me super lovely emails. They are so appreciated. Truly. Your kindness warms me. I do what I do for you.
As promised, here’s a link to my resource list.
Lots of helpful goodies here – myriad artist services/service providers, support and granting agencies, helpful software for artists, books on the Business of Art, organizations that are there to lend you assistance and on and on. If you know of someone or something that should be added, please let me know.
After the talk, I chatted up a photo editor friend about the copyright/protecting your photos online issue brought up by one of our Annenberg friends. As to not leave the stone unturned, I did some Googling on the Internet machine and found a few articles on image protection and copyrighting your work with the US Patent office. Here they be.
Shopify seems to be a handy resource for marketing tips, especially for ecommerce. Here’s “A Legal Primer For Photographers”/selling your photos online article.
And an article from The Guardian that discusses different ways to watermark, fingerprint and elsewise protect your images.
Hoping these are helpful for our photographer friends. If there is anything else you feel I should/could share bear, send me a link or post here. I can also post stuff on my McLean Art Projects Facebook page. I am here to serve.
Look forward to seeing you out and about. Please stay in touch!
