It is often difficult to know where your stock images have been used due to the restrictions on contacting buyers by some stock agencies. Thanks to GIS (Google Image Search) and Tineye not only has this been made easier, it also throws up some image infringements (generally where people or companies believe that “anything on the internet is free” and have a rude awakening to the realities of life in the 21st Century courtesy of intellectual property (IP) lawyers specialising in photographic infringements).

It was great to see that some of my stock images had been used for these two Arizona Frommer’s guides (in addition to a number of others elsewhere). I have always loved the American West and Southwest and the opportunity to visit is rarely turned down. Thanks must go to Lisa and the Salvatore clan for their hospitality without whom these pictures might never have been made…
