[resolved] How To Contact A Photographer (11 posts)

    About three years ago in a search of the internet I found a photo by someone here listed under a group of photos on a page entitled "Camp Naturalist." Is there some way to contact the photographer who took it for permission to use it on a forum that I belong to?

    Thank you for your considerations.

    Kind regards,

    Jonathan

    Not sure what this has to do with WordPress but if you want help with finding this photographer, we could probably use a bit more info, say, at least a link to the photo.

    I found it on the WebPress.org site as a Camp Naturalist photo - couldn't find a direct link.

    If the images was a straight copy from the original, you should be able to retrieve this data. EXIF Data as it's refererred to is stored in the top section of the image, much like the header info in html.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Exchangeable_image_file_format

    getting down to it, Save the image to your desktop, right click, and view properties.

    The author should be filled out if the photographer did it correctly. If not you'll see a create by, or something along those lines.

    got a link for us, by any chance?

  5. Quick aside to jonathan68:

    As a photographer, I appreciate you going through the trouble to contact the photographer and get permission.

    Alright, now where's that link? (A link to the page displaying the photo would suffice.)

    I finally located the best reference that I could find in this link:

    http://gocb.wordpress.com/2007/05/06/raccoon-skull-with-some-skin-may-6-2007/

    Would like to contact the photographer if he can be tracked down through that link.

  7. The post in question links to this Flickr profile:

    http://www.flickr.com/people/campnaturalist/

    which in turn links to this site:

    http://www.friedenswald.org/

    which lists a mailing address and phone number.

    @jonathan68, you were given a link to that site 3 hours after you first posted a request for help, 2 days ago on the WordPress.COM Forum.

    Checking back might have saved you some effort and time.
