Dr.Nikon Loc: Honolulu Hawaii
 
I will soon have the most surf shots in Hawaii aired on local tv in history and it will continue now for the unforeseeable future .. it took years to get to this point .

This is today’s local shot aired today on the local channel, the different shots are aired everyday in the mornings and with the already submitted and those to be taken .., It can Go on for years ..

I had to sign an agreement with the tv station .. and it was a blessing to do it ..

I included some others as well .. all my shots are always posted to The Hogg first .., and have been over the years …

How much do you get paid per image? What kind of contract? Or are you saying you are a voluntary slave to a profit making telecommunications company and you work for them for free? Do they pay money to a charity of your choice? If you work for free, would you come over here and shoot sports for free for me? I have a contract all ready to go, it is only a few years LOL. I am not sure if I am supposed to congratulate someone who volunteers as a slave. It does sound like you are happy, who am I to question someone's happiness being a slave?

What’s your problem? Jealous that no TV station is showing your images?

I just checked your profile and not an image posted. It’s a shame those without images to show get jealous because of others successes.

I have no problem. I was just asking if he was selling his pics or giving them away. He said he has been doing this for years. His pictures are good, I am not jealous if he is working for nothing, if that is what he is doing. I just joined this site less that a week ago and yes. I have posted pictures. What is your problem?

You spoke very negatively and called him a slave twice. You didn’t sound very congratulatory to me.

So I should be happy someone has spent many years of time and effort working for free so someone else can make money off his time and effort? Should I be happy for someone who is a slave to drugs or alcohol and that person is happy about it? If he was doing it for a non profit or to help others that is a noble achievement but for a big money making company like a tv station? I can see a person wanting to see if a person could post their images to see if they could win a contest if they were unsure of their ability and needed a little ego stroking by winning or making good images, but after they won a few times they continue of years then sign a contract to continue to do so for more years and is happy to do so. Fine he is free to do what he wants but I had to ask the question. You guys seem to be for sure that he is doing it for free. Ok, question answered, I will drop it.

I was asking a question if he was actually giving his images away. I would congratulate him for excellent pictures, there is no question there, but to work for free.. No you are right, I am not congratulation him on that, perhaps a little chastisement mixed with joking around.

The irony of someone making such a comment with the username r1ch.

Since a stock photo subscription would cost them about $.50 an image, I seriously doubt any damage has been done to either party financially, but on the other hand, The Doc might well have improved his brand by magnitudes with this kind of great exposure for his amazing work which he displays here on UHH for free and has done for some time now, but since you just joined a couple of days ago, you wouldn't know that. That's all the troll food I have available for now. TTFN
