I would have thought that kicking Boom/Corus around in 2016 was fair warning.
Surely, National headlines and a 25K Lawsuit was enough to make the media pay attention…but no.
Here we go again with local station Chez running one of my images of an Ottawa couple and mocking them by using an altered image. I wonder if a “bacon” clothing joke is really appropriate in these times of religious and cultural sensitivity.
Perhaps unkindness is now the norm as we see it all around from the highest political office to the trolls on Facebook…
Not on my watch and not with my clients.
I imagine some people thought I was a bit overboard going after Boom but perhaps now you realize that this is just the tip of the iceberg. You are either part of the problem…or part of the solution. All this would end…if photographers stood up for their rights and defended their clients trust in them. We control our images and guard our clients privacy…it`s a responsibility few take seriously these days.
How would you feel if this was your family?
How about if it was your loved one…and yourself.
Those nice people who own Chez have offered to settle…as long as I don`t talk about this.
This is my response…
