I have taken many watch photos over the years and many of them have been shared on the Internet. I welcome people to share my pictures on watch forums, social media sites and other sites of non-sales nature. You don’t have to ask me for permission as long as you use them for the purpose of sharing information/picture and promoting the watch collecting hobby. Anything that is considered “fair use” is fine with me and I appreciate if you give credit when you use the pictures.
There are some commercial watch sellers who use my photos to sell their watches without asking me. This is infringement of intellectual property rights. I spend great effort to take pictures and Why should they use my work to make money? Here, I will show you some examples.
