Social media is something that many photographers rely on regardless if its to showcase their work or to bring in clients or subjects to work with. For many, there are some downsides on how social media is changing how photos are respected, so what is the proper etiquette for Instagram?
With regards to Facebook and Twitter, there are easy methods for others to share your work with a simple click of a button for shares or retweets. With Instagram, there isn't an option to share someone's work to show up on your feed. What ends up happening is other accounts save your work and then post on their wall usually without asking or even crediting the photographer. Some may be ok with this but many are not and it's no proper etiquette for artists. In this video, Chelsea Northrup from Tony & Chelsea Northrup shares her pet peeves which touches on these issues while discussing what she believes is the proper way to go about sharing others works.
I tend to agree with Chelsea on many of these issues but understand many might not. Do you happen to agree with Chelsea? What are some other pet peeves you have with social media regarding your work?
