In the last 3 months I received many emails talking about someone (some sort of famous photographer) who used to copy and paste the idea of the picture I’m showing you today.
Seriously I don’t care, unless this guy is making money using my own picture, I don’t really care how many copy and paste he’s gonna make with me or any other photographer.
To take pictures we must have a huge source of inspiration and you get inspired by the world around you.
In some cases, when you shoot fashion or celebrities you are inspired by the great names because you’ve seen an exhibition or you simply bought a book. So, nothing is wrong and that’s why I don’t care.
And to be honest, I shot this one and more with this stunning model in 2008 when I was in Sofia, Bulgaria.
It was for a feature in a magazine.
If I don’t remember wrong we were supposed to do something different but because of the weather and the raining all day, we ended up to shoot inside the suite at the hotel playing in some of the pictures with the drops of the rain falling on the window.
So, not because someone showed up with a very similar image in 2017, 9 years later, it means that he made a copy and paste.
This is just the way it is and this is happening every day if you are a photographer.
It’s part of the game and as I said it’s not that big deal, or maybe better, I don’t really care.
So, thanks for letting me know but it’s ok.
