My mate Ramon Remenyi sent over this story about some scumbag non-entity band that didn't seem to give two shits about ripping off a photographer's work.

Most of us are happy to shoot pictures, we love doing it but it's hard work, it costs money to do it and it's not unreasonable to expect financial returns when it's possible to do so. Some people think art is still some sort of a joke, photography is simply point'n'snap, out pops a picture and it costs nothing, well it doesn't! It takes hours of planning, hours of hard work to execute, and time to produce and push out to people, let alone the initial outlay for kit that's used.

I used to give my images away, I don't anymore. I charge for them, I charge a lot of money as they take a lot of time and effort to produce.

Over-saturated images are a crutch for poor photography!

In marketing bollocks-speak, a bit of rebranding! I'm a 42 year old bloke trying to take photography a bit more seriously, while the name "fuzzypiggy" might be unique it just doesn't sound like I take it seriously! Ha ha!

There is a lot of power in a name and it always should be very carefully considered.

Many people do not seen to realize that if you have a non serious name no one will take you seriously, it is the same with avatars and if that is stupid and silly then that's what people will think of and expect from you.

I did not mind the name fussypiggy at all but then when you think of it, it was really just a chat name .
