Thanks for the look end your creativity
Hi. I just had some group pictures taken at awa. I had forgotten what I'm supposed to do to get them. Thanks!
To the Messenger,
I think we have come a long way with this however it would have been nice if you could have contacted me directly so that I could answer your questions.
The Dragon Con logo was used with permission.
My private shoots were sold out long before the logo ever appeared.
However, I do agree with you about the confusion and have removed all photos with the logo from the web.
It is not about money. It is about you selling yourself to unsuspecting clients that "think" they are purchasing the services of the "official" DC photograher. You sell your self as this, you use the DC logo on your pics. You are like a used car sellsman that puts saw dust in the transmission to hide a bad ride.
You are talented but you soil that talent by selling your self as something as you are not.
It is wrong and if you were any type of professional (or even a man) you would not lower yourself to such a level.
Enjoy the Con.
The Messenger: Doubly invalid.
DragonCon has *never* required photographers to pay for the "privilege" of shooting at the con. Those that are paying aren't paying to take pictures, they're paying for space just like any other dealer there. Others, like Froggy, do not purchase space from the Con. Rather they strike separate deals with the guests and set up in space they rent from the hotel, like in a suite. The con does not make any money off these people beyond their memberships.
Let me say that again; DragonCon does not make any money off these people beyond their memberships. Any deals with the Guests are the same as selling their autographs and pictures in the Walk of Fame. It is an entirely separate business transaction. As long as Bryan doesn't charge to shoot in DragonCon rented space, he is doing nothing wrong. If he contracts with the hotel for space, that is separate and DragonCon doesn't have anything to do with it.
As far as professionalism, just because you paid for space to take and sell pictures, it does not make you a professional. I know of hundreds of professional photographers that come to DragonCon to simply to enjoy it and take pictures. Some even rent special equipment just for the show, not to make money, but just to have fun.
The DragonCon Photostaff falls into that category; professionals that are donating their time and having fun. I know it because I used to do it. I was the founding Director of Photography and held that position for 10 years until the birth of my son.
