Giving credit to the photographer

Jason and Quintus are both photographers for the High School they attend.  They, along with one other schoolboy, take all the photos on sport days.

I’m proud to say that the photos are pretty awesome.

I can say that, since Jason’s photos ended up in the local newspaper.  On the front page, the back page (sport page) and a whole page inside the newspaper.

That is pretty exceptional for a Grade 8 kid.

Did he get recognition?  No.  Our newspaper did not ONCE mention that he took the photos.  Photographers get recognition for their photos.  That’s just the way it is.

His photos were pretty much the selling point of the newspaper last week and no mention of the photographer.

Well Jason,  Congratulations.  We are so extremely proud of you.

  2. Mel, unless he signed a release stating that his photographs may be used, the newspaper don’t even have the right to publish them. I would write a strongly worded letter to the editor! At the very least they should offer recognition, but in this day and age, compensation! (Every little help towards funding university!)

    • I totally agree. I am very upset with them not giving him any recognition.
