UPDATE: A correction can be found here.
Back in early November I was contacted by the artistic editor for the Charleston Magazine about using the above photograph in their January issue. I agreed, provided that they gave me credit as the photography, and sent specific instructions on what I wanted on the credit line.
On Christmas Eve I received a copy of the magazine. The photograph was there, as part of an article on a “Bucket List” of things to do around Charleston. It was number 39 on their list – a full page photo that spread across the gutter.
While I’m flattered that they would use the photo as a full-page, there was one problem. I wasn’t credited ANYWHERE – not on the photo, not in the article, not even on some obscure back page. Same goes for the online version.
Right now I’m thinking of sending them a hefty invoice for violation of our terms.
