And That's Mine
Walmart wouldn't give me the photos I had them print. They said I needed to show them a release from the photographer - because they were 'professional photos'. I guess I should take that as a complement. If only it wasn't so annoying.
Me: I'd like my photos.
Her: I can't give them to you until I see a release form.
Me: I took the photo.
Her: Well, someone did the graphics.
Me: I did that too.
Her: I need proof.
Her: Well what company do you work for?
Me: I just took the photo. For me.
This went on for a while. Finally I filled out a form as the photographer giving permission to the person with the form - that would be me - to make prints. Best part. I had to fill out when the permission ends. Seems I can get prints of the images until January 1st 2006.
She said I should make up a letter - to avoid all this the next time. So I'll write me and say I can make as many copies of my work that I want.
