Free Photo Request Of 777

Sat May 05, 2012 4:37 pm

Hi everyone!

I got a request from recently:

Dear Axel,

Is it possible to have this digital photo of JAL Boeing 777 ID=2100176 and if possible with 2.MB+

Your picture will be ONLY use for my private photos collection on B777

Thanks again


And I have noticed that it wasn't his first time with that question:
Free Photo Request- Again? (by ThomasWarloe Dec 8 2010 in Aviation Photography)
Photo Harassment (by LGW340 Feb 4 2010 in Aviation Photography)

So my question is now to the more experienced guys (since the two topics above are locked)
Should I give him a copy of my photo? I don't know this Dann and I don't want to be cruel since he claims that he only will use it privately. It's about this photo:

Thanks for answering

As this gentleman says:
"He asked me for 777 shots all the time last year. I sent him maybe 3-4 and then I kind of started ignoring him however he also stopped asking so I guess it was "mutual". I think if he had any intent of misusing them it would've been found out by now as it seems like he asks a large number of uploaders for high-res photos. Therefore if these photos were published anywhere it would've probably been found by now. I think the guy just has a great liking for the 777, much like how I love Tu-134s and use several hundred Tu-134 shots in a random wallpaper generator "

What does annoy me however is the fact that when you email a photographer with the question to get the pic in full HD resolution just so I can use it as my desktop, they answer you I will send it to you soon and you never hear again from them.. So that bothers me, but on the other hand I understand why they aren't sending it as well  .

Quoting axelesgg (Thread starter):
Should I give him a copy of my photo?

That's enirely your decision. Personally, I sent a polite reply a while ago when asked the same question that he's more than welcome to have a copy of the photo from the site for his collection, but I don't give out high resolution photos.

I've had quite a few requests from him. Have sent 3 pictures, but he does tend to be a little impatient. Follow up requests etc.

I don't see what he needs all these hi res images for. They won't fit on his walls.

Also, he didn't ask nicely enough. So he doesn't get mine.

I have sent a couple of photos but I've asked something back. Then he stopped sending me e-mails.

He's asking for 2MB so that he can print the photos, which, to be rather honest he should be buying off of you rather than doing himself.

Personally I said no to him each time.

Dannis Bord I think?  

I remember him - he does have a huge collection of B777 images which he collects and prints for his own purposes. I haven't been contacted by him since I left the site. I think the fact I have a "buy" function deters that.
