View Full Version : Aviation website photo request

23rd November 2013, 08:22 AM
I was contacted by David Harrigan from "Aviation Heritage Lincolnshire" website. The website promotes the museums and other aviation sites around Lincolnshire.
He had seen a photo of mine taken of the Lancaster at East Kirkby at night.
I was asked if they could use on the home page of the website for a couple of months.
So it is now on the website for I think a couple of months.

Three things spring to mind - easy to see why they thought it worth putting up = great photo. Nice to be asked rather than ripped off and, finally, you got your well deserved 15' of fame.

Pleased for you on all three counts.

I agree with Wally on the first two and congratulations, not sure about the second though as I could not see anywhere where you were credited with the image.

I agree with Paul - get them to credit the photo to you and acknowledge your copyright...

:o Sorry took it for granted that as it was requested to be displayed, the credit would have been applied automatically... apparently, this was not the case.

They'll be paying a higher rate for not including a credit.

It was a good picture. Congtaulations on having it recognised as such.

Always nice to see your work in print but they should at least credit you!

Thanks for the comments.
Regarding the credit it has been sorted, they have recognised that a credit hasn't been put on the website so it should be done soon.

Still there, 10 months and counting!

Thanks I was suprised they used the image for so long. I asked my contact and he said they didn't change the image as they were using it to promote the visit of the Canadian Lancaster.
By the way those who questioned the credit by leaving the mouse pointer over the image the credit is displayed.
