My PSA for the day… To all the music lovers and fans out there… I understand the world we live in.  I love the passion everyone has for their favorite artist, musician and band, but I need everyone to take a moment and understand… all artists, photographers & musicians work hard on their art and give their best.  We all know we can NOT stop everyone from using our art illegally on merchandise and most of all social media.  What I’ve said before and I will say it again and again… show respect by asking to use the photos for social media!  Having manners goes a long way.  Giving credit helps and is also a nice way to show appreciation.  It’s about respect for everyone who creates.  I know you wouldn’t like it if someone came to your work and took your hard work for free.  OR took your ideas and did not give you credit.

In the end… All I’m asking for is that everyone should be nice, show respect, use their manners, understand that the artist works hard and be grateful to the artist for sharing their hard work.  I don’t think I’m asking too much.  THANK YOU for letting me speak my peace.


PS.  I know I’m not gonna change the world or internet anytime soon, but I have to say what I have to say.  #manners #grateful
