Lol I love the hostility of this website! So many defensive people.
In this day and age, marketing and using popular online platforms will give you an edge as a photographer. Instagram is used by many professional photographers and agencies. But I take it too many people here are perpetually frightened at the thought of showing off their photos. I sense a little bit of insecurity but sure lol.
and if you want me to match your hostility, I’ll just say this.
If you are a professional then you don’t care about that one photo or having rights to that one small photo. If you are successful then you couldn’t care less that one company would have some rights to a low res photo.
and if you are honest with yourself, noone actually cares about your photos enough for them to make a fuss about it.
