I'm sure this is a delicate subject for some, and an area of courtesy and etiquette where there is no real rule book, but I thought it worth my while to post my thoughts and maybe stir up some debate.
As someone who predominately uses original content, I feel quite proud of the development in my photography and content. As someone who works in the clothing industry, the images I present, and what I try to convey online is an extension of my professional persona. To have that usurped without credit can be incredibly frustrating, especially when there are people out there seeing my images and wanting to know more.
I like the wave of reblog rolls out there, particularly on tumblr. Speaking to my good friend mostexerent, he said something pertinent - it is amazing how refined an eye some of these bloggers have. They are sorting through everything the web has to offer, eschewing the dross and presenting the gems, beautifully curated. But as someone working at getting original content up - please show some respect and offer credits.
