Need Help Regarding Possible Photo Theft

Fri Apr 28, 2006 4:59 pm

This is mostly heresay, but here's the story...per se...

My mom and dad went to visit one of my uncles a few weeks ago, and this guy travels alot as part of his job. He told my mom that he'd been on a flight where he happened to be sitting next to an aircraft photographer...who'd seen my WN night shot over Vegas...being used by WN.

If you are that photographer who spoke with my uncle please oh please tell me where you saw it, and if anybody else has seen it, same goes.

Right now I'm a little irritated, if it comes to pass that they did hock the shot, I'll be pissed off as all hell  Wink

Are you sure that is your shot? I have seen the same shot from different photographers over the past several years. I'm sure a majority of the photos people take of the strip departing at night with a wing view are not posted on the web.

Just like the Frontier tails shot everybody does from the bridge the connects the terminal with Concourse A at Denver. They all look the same...

In my experience WN pays for their images, I have gotten three green passes from them in the last 12 months, two on for the same picture.

A number of photographers on here have the same experience.

Hey, I remember that guy! We talked to him in the terminal! And if it's not him, then fuckem

Eric, do you still have the card from the WN PR lady from their 1st arrival? We told her that we'd send her our best shots of the water cannon. I have her contact info if you want to look into that shot. But first, you need to find out more about the photo in question.
