As of today I am a social media ambassador for Swiss quality watch makers Christian Lawson. More about this in a coming post, but please feel free to visit their website and look around. I’m giving you a 30% discount on any watch in their webstore using the coupon code TOBBEHVORNUM at checkout.
For me online earnings is so much more than just crypto investments, it’s actually all about my brand merchandise. This takes a lot of time and effort getting done with images that not only have to be chosen but also adapted and edited for all the various items they’ll be going on.
With the way things have been going this year there haven’t been many high value photos shot, it’s after all the editorial shots from concerts that gives the most revenue, it would really help if you wouldd please consider at least to do some of your gift shopping, Christmas is around the corner, from the outlets carrying my merchandise. Every little bit helps, you know.
You can also help me improve the assortment by commenting if there is some motif you would like to be able to purchase items with. I will be adding a lot of new motives in the near future and would like to be able to give you what you want when doing so.
20% of the revenue on this promotion will be donated to a deserving charity, the one chosen is By Your Side (Vid Din Sida) that work to aid homeless elderly in Stockholm, Sweden. Be sure to take part and help people in need.
How would you like to be the owner of a real collectors item? A one of a kind 30×40 cm print, signed and with a certificate of autenthicity, never to be available as a large scale print ever again and never to be sold as a digital image either. This will be your only chance ever to obtain this unique print, I won’t even make one for myself to make sure it’s the only large print around.
Coming soon might be an online auction for a print that is not supposed to exist, a print called “Drought” with The Pink Panther. It was originally made for a gallery exhibition that due to the restrictions caused by the pandemic never was. The image itself is part of the ongoing series Childhood’s End, but the copyright owners Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (MGM) will not grant me a property release.
My intention all along have been to make Childhood’s End images available as prints, apparel and other novelty items. Images with that pink kitten we all love should have been included, but to do so I need licensing or at the very least a property release from the copyright owners. Since the beginning of November 2019 I have been trying to obtain this from Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (MGM) without even getting a response. I even looked up their chief legal officer at LinkedIn and contacted her regarding this matter just to be totally ignored and blocked.
How much would it be worth to you, how much would you pay for this truly unique collectors item? I need to get at least a hunch on what the starting bid should be.
Please feel free to comment with how much you would want to pay. To be personally invited send an e-mail with the subject “Pinkie” to firstname.lastname@example.org and you will recieve a message when the auction is about to go live. This is the only message you will recieve from submitting your e-mail to this promotion and your address will not be sold to any third party.
Also, please feel free to share this blog post with your own networks to give as many as possible the chance to get in.
Right now and until November 1st you can get 25% off of the retail price on MetalPhoto prints at Printler using the campaign code HALLOWEEN7433, just copy and paste into the checkout page. Time to go shopping for Christmas gifts!
Sometimes the Childhood’s End characters are depicting human life, like when your bottle is empty but you’re still thirsty. There have been quite a few shots taken with Pinkie, unfortunately you won’t be able to get any merchandise with those.

Returning to my models, yep, I do have a couple of those, for a moment to present to you an angry young man screaming his lungs out at the devil. This image actually is available both as prints and novelty items, it can also be found with some stock photo agencies. Although this may not be your cup of tea Christmas is coming up and without a doubt you have a metalhead or two on your gift list that would love to get something metal related. And there are other nice items that may be more to your own liking.
If you’re looking for something different please let me know in a comment and I will do my very best to accomodate, I have an extensive archive of images and may very well be able to get what you want up in the shops.
On Instagram many profiles do this thing where you can get featured if you tag them when posting yourself. It’s a nice and easy way to get visibility, if they feature your image as is that is. Yesterday one such feature occured, but when doing like this profile did is actually copyright infringement. Although he/she tagged me the image had been cropped in such a way that my logo was removed and also the image went from sharp to fuzzy.
When done like this it reflects poorly on me as photographer, when my image is reposted it should be unaltered and not made a lesser image that won’t show the quality of my work. Below both versions have been included so you can see the difference. and, it is copyright infringement which makes it illegal when reposting!
Needless to say this particular Instagrammer won’t be getting any more support from me and I am actually considering filing charges. It’s sad really that people are so clueless when it comes to copyright.
This is not the first time I have been going down this road on the blogs, at the backup mirror there are a couple of posts to read. Infringement and Credits are two of them, one with what not to do and one on how to do it.
