SOMEBODY JUST STOLE MY PHOTO
What can I do?
Well, the below link isn’t specifically Australian related, and some of the advice may be off-base, but it is worth a read.
It is probably worth two reads. Most photographers let image theft slip.
They are dismissing image theft as not worth the effort to attempt to recover compensation for blatant commercial exploitation of their hard work. I know, as I have been guilty of this on many occasions.
There are a few images I have that I would definitely follow up. And, have, with varying success.

WE’RE PLANNING TO START NEW WORKSHOPS IN 2021
Roughly once a month, I try and give an update on where we are on workshopping. Which means I get to read the previous months post. I want to think I’m a relatively positive, the glass is half full kind of bloke. But, now I’m starting to become a little less optimistic.
The road out of Corona Virus for us is not looking all that great. For those of you who don’t know. We live and work at the top end of the disaster state, Victoria. Our last recorded active case was back in March. The closest active case at the moment is over 500 kilometres away. But, people living and working less than 400metres from our office and studio can mostly go about their daily lives normally, while we are still of course, wearing a mask at all times.
We are still hoping and working towards some in-person events starting during March 2021. However, we are looking at ways to take some of our adventures online. The problem is I don’t want anything we do to be similar to content already available. Much hard work ahead I think:)
