Why Do My Pictures Have To Carry Your Watermark When I Post Them On Facebook?

Ah, this is a question that gets posed to professional photographers a lot, and something that they explain to their clients over and over again. So, I have decided to explain the importance of photographer's watermarks, when displaying professional photographs online.

While it may just be a snap of the shutter to you, when a photographer takes your photograph they consider it their ART! They take time to contemplate and work the lighting, the posing, the mood and feel of a photograph before even snapping that shutter. While it may not seem like it during a photo shoot, there is a lot going on behind the scenes, even if only in the photographer's mind, for creating that perfect picture for their client. Nobody would consider erasing the signature from a painting or drawing, however people think nothing of cropping a photograph to exclude the watermark the photographer has put on it, to brand the artwork as their creation.

About Me

My photo

I am a portrait and fine art photographer, servicing the Central Florida area. I have had a love of photography for as long as I can remember. Having spent 15+ years of my adult life as a graphic designer, I knew I had a creative mind and a visual eye for things. While design was my forte, I always carried a camera everywhere, and somehow was the "designated photographer" at just about every event I attended. But, it wasn't until I picked up my first "real camera," a Nikon DSLR, in 2008, that I really knew photography was what I was meant to do with my life! I photographed everything in sight, after getting that camera. But, I knew early on that I was meant to photograph people. I just genuinely love faces! All faces. I could look at faces all day long. Faces are just beautiful to me. Doesn't matter the age, the color, the shape or the size. I find nothing more fascinating then faces.
