The Britain at War magazine that wanted to use my pictures arrived in the post today. They’ve printed my pictures, but haven’t put any kind of acknowledgement on there that 3 of the photos are mine. Bastards!
They have used two other peoples photos on the other page and both have acknowledgements made to them. In fact, because they have acknowledged people for the other photos on the other page it looks like my photos belong to them. Grrrrrr.
It’s a bit of a novelty for me getting pictures printed in a magazine, so I’m proper annoyed now. The only person who knows that them pictures are mine is the guy who contacted me about using them….and me. My 5 minutes of photography fame has now been shattered.
I think I’ll contact them and ask them why they haven’t identified me as the photographer – as I requested and as they agreed to. But it’s too late now anyway, it’s not like they will reproduce the article next month with my name on there. If anything they’ll write up a little apology box next month (in size 4 font) which no one reads anyway. *shakes an angry fist*
Am I wrong to be pissed off, or am I being a bit pedantic?
