Why Would You Do That?

Just because I post a photo on the Internet, it does not give anyone the right to grab a copy and use it on their own site.  It certainly does not give anyone the right to edit that image and remove it's watermark! Why do I say this?  Well, a Music, Art, Film and Food print/online magazine here in Ireland did just that with one of my images. Was I annoyed when I saw the image on their site?  Yes!  Was I even more annoyed when I realised just what they had done?  Oh hell yes!! I contacted the editor of the magazine and got the 'oh it was the intern' excuse.  That's not a valid excuse.  If they are an intern, they are there to learn under your guidance, you should have noticed the issue.  The buck stops with you, the editor. Back in 2018, the European Court of Justice ruled that you the consent of the photographer if you wish to use their work online.

2019 MJs

Normally, at the end of the year, I put together a few collages from the gigs I've been to throughout the year. This year I thought I'd try something different, so ladies and gentlemen, I give you the first ever MJs! I think they are rather self explanatory, so I'll not even try to explain them!

2019-12-22 Christmas Concert - Main Street Food Bank

I nearly forgot about this... It was a last minute decision to go, mainly because I only found out about it at the last minute, but it was in aid of a local food bank in my home town, so...
