Once again, my friends, I ask your advice. You may remember that I was contacted a while back by someone wanting to stick my photo in a book they were compiling of images found on the internet. It seemed shady, as the authors were getting their content for free, and if the photographers wanted a hard-copy, they’d have to buy it themselves.
At first, I didn’t respond because I got busy. So I received a last call email that included a link to a FAQ sheet. The additional info that provided was that only the cover photographer gets paid (100 Euros) and gets a copy. I was still wary about it all, so I replied with, “No, thank you. Please do not use my photo.”
Fast forward to today. I got another email from the publisher. He appears to be making a genuine effort to gain my interest.
:: “urban dolls” project
We have been in contact for the PINK ATTITUDE book – as
someone at Liz had selected one of your photo – and
understand you are not interested to participate.
I am not asking again : the book is at the printing
process right now.
If you want we can send a free e-book copy of PINK ATTITUDE
so you can have an idea of the editorial and graphic work
that has been made by LIZ team.
Besides, we are working on a new title called URBAN DOOLS
and I wanted to ask how we can collaborate on this other
Please feel free to contact me.
Have a good day

I don’t fancy myself anywhere near the best photographer out there. I have so much to learn. Why so interested in me? I do know that many people wrote in that they found my post when researching Liz Editions. Did the company do a Google search and find what I wrote, or is this genuine interest? I often hate how the internet so easily masks one’s true intentions. Face-to-face I can tell where I stand with someone.
Opinions? And, what might an Urban Doll be? Hmmmm…
