MY TRAVEL PHOTOS FEATURED ON INSTAGRAM

I’m extremely thankful and thrilled each time my travel photo is featured on massively followed Instagram accounts, along with other breathtaking images created by professional photographers and fellow travel enthusiasts. It’s utterly flattering, inspiring, motivating and challenges my creativity more. Being featured never fails to brighten up my day and admittedly, it’s one of the best things to wake up to!

As I have already shared my photos featured by Dubai and UAE-based IG accounts on an earlier blog post (http://wp.me/p72lLq-9Hr), here are some of my travel photographs taken beyond UAE that were originally posted on my own Instagram, @iamdocgelo, then were featured on some of the most famous travel galleries on IG with proper tag and credits.

Enjoy!

  • What’s your opinion on sharing and reposting photos by others on Instagram and on the world wide web in general?

While it is always pleasing to see my travel photos being shared by Instagram travel accounts with proper credits, I feel exactly opposite when someone steals or reposts my images without credits.

Although my travel photos are publicly shared on the web, it’s basic understanding that it does not warrant anyone to discredit me as the author or photographer. Photos and images available online are free to be searched however, they’re not free for use. If Intellectual Property Rights have not been adapted yet to internet photography and articles, then at least paying respect to the content creators by tagging and providing credits would be the most considerate act, and will be highly appreciated. It’s easy to request for permission to repost or share a particular photo, just as easy as searching it on the web.

Any comments or additional inputs to enlighten me and our readers about photography and its use online, including updated facts regarding Plagiarism and Intellectual Property Rights are most welcomed on the comment section below. Thanks!
