I have taken particular care to produce a site where the photographic content is the result of my own endeavours. By this I don't mean that I have taken each and every photograph, but that I have personally scanned and prepared each photograph from material in my own collection of magazines, record sleeves, books, memorabilia etc. I have taken care to credit the original author of photographs used wherever possible. In some cases I have taken the photographs, such as the Tal Farlow and Martin Taylor portraits and hold the negatives.
I have no objection to their being downloaded and I can do little to stop it BUT if the purpose of the download is to use the photograph at another web-site I would appreciate a credit and/or a link to my site as a gesture of good will. Please send me an e-mail and I will be only too pleased to help out wherever possible.
Some of my original work i.e. the Martin Taylor portrait, a Hank Garland photo and a Wes Montgomery photo are being used at other sites without credit being given and I am taking steps to stop the practice.
