Kiel mal anders / Conceptual:

Kiel mal anders is a conceptual photo-series.

We aim to capture typical, well known sights/views of the city KIEL/Schleswig-Holstein/Germany combined with the pink (or else) gumm-boots and beautiful legs.

The :devart:-member :iconpeter-zjw: is a great example for someone who misunderstands the function of DA-galleries. His gallery is filled with hundreds of photos taken from the web or even from DA-artists. And he doesn´t care...
Neither does DA, if you report these copyright infringements, they tell you that only the original artist can make a complaint...
I wrote the following text on his site and parked it here to have a copy, because he will hide it instantly. But copy-and-paste will re-post it on his site every day...

You Sir, are an

I will try to explain why I follow your "DA career" so closely:
Some of the photos you put in your gallery are beautiful, I have to admit that.
But I have seen some of them elsewhere on the internet before you posted them. That "rings a bell" and makes me look closer and use recursive photo search tools.
I do this, because I consider photography most of the time as ARTWORK. And this work of the artist (photographer) and his model has to respected, just as I expect my art work to be respected. There are laws in many countries around the world protecting the work of photographers as artists! Only the artist (and/or the model) has the right to decide, what should happen with the photos or where they should be published.
Usually I try to contact DA-members, who publish material they don´t own the rights to. Sometimes they react, sometimes they don´t. Sometimes I report the matter to DA, like in your case.
When you joined DA, you agreed to their rules for submission. Thereby you agreed not to publish material you don´t own the copyrights to.
I reminded you about that. and you didn´t care and continued to submit photos you probably didn´t shoot yourself (and you are obviously not the model...).
Why can I tell, these photos are not yours?
It is an educated guess. Most of the images in your gallery are found all over the internet. There are tools to find them. And you are not the first (or second) to publish them...
Also usually real photographs contain their exif-data or information about model/date of shooting/location or else. Most of your photos don´t have any exif-data, and the ones with data all come from very differing cameras. That is highly unlikely with one photographer...

All this doesn´t make me proud of myself nor happy. I rather find it poor and disappointing that so many people don´t care about the work of photographers (and models).

Please stop stealing the work of other people. Put them in your :+fav:s if they come from :devart: and give them the credit they deserve.

Looking for Shootings! Blut geleckt! Modelle gesucht!

Auch zu finden bei:

Kieler Ansichten mit Gummistiefeln oder Makros von Birnen-Hinterteilen genügen mir nicht!

Forbidden Fruit - Four + Final by 51ststate Kiel mal anders - Eins by 51ststate

Ich suche Modelle / Menschen, die Lust haben, meine Erfahrungen und / oder ihr Portfolio zu erweitern.

Ich fotografiere mittlerweile seit zwanzig Jahren analog und digital. Aktuellere Bilder könnt Ihr Euch hier anschauen.
Bislang sind wenig Arbeiten mit Menschen dabei, das soll sich ändern!

Daher freue ich mich über Modelle (m/w), 18-88+, von rundlich bis super-dünn, die Lust haben, fotografiert zu werden.

Ich habe viele kreative Ideen, die man wohl im Bereich Conceptual ansiedeln kann. Wen Details interessieren, der kann mir ´ne Note oder Mail schreiben. Für Anregungen bin ich natürlich offen.

Von meiner Seite würden Shootings als TfP, TfCD also ohne Bares und mit Release-Vertrag laufen. Seriösitat, Dankbarkeit, Anerkennung des Modells, Verlässlichkeit, etc. könnt Ihr voraussetzen. Gut miteinander umzugehen, ist Grundvoraussetzung für gelingende Fotos...

Kontakt über DA oder MK.

I am always looking for models (m/f 18-88+)! If you happen to hang around in the northern german area, looking for an amateur photographer shooting you... Contact me via DA note.
