Unless otherwise noted all content on this site is copyrighted by me. I’ve spent countless hours and huge sums of money over many years acquiring the equipment and skills to create the photos and survive the events that allow me to present this stuff. I have devoted this great labor with the intent to help and educate, please don’t defeat that by stealing. I am very sensitive to the works created by artists and acknowledge creative effort. I have taken to using Digimarc digital watermarking of my images. I don’t like diminishing an image by plastering my name and copyright across it. Now an encrypted watermark is embedded to all images. In addition the service scans the web and alerts me to unauthorized use. Please show a moral high ground and don’t copy or steal images or text from this site. If you use anything under the fair use doctrine please show the courtesy and credit my efforts. If you have a need for something I have or created contact me and we can work something out. I will protect my works and thefts will not be tolerated.
