Thumbnail-size Samples


General Photography

It happens quite often that I got to somebody’s website, and I see a bunch of thumbnails, and I think “Oh, those must be nice when viewed larger”, and it turns out they’re not thumbnails, they’re the actual samples of the photographer’s work. If you have one of those websites let me ask you this following question: Why do you even bother with a website if you don’t want people to see your stuff? Assuming, of course, that you don’t happen to be a stamp collector who thinks that all good things must be small. But seriously, the internet poses quite serious limitations for photographers already, and offering people, who might be interested in your work, thumbnail-size samples does not further your cause all that much. Oh, and here is my response to potential emails where people warn me about other people “stealing” their photos: Puh-leeeeze!
