In pictures: Creative Commons photographers discuss their work (Wired UK) | Kol Tregaskes Photography Blog | Scoop.it

"Whether its close-ups of insects you're after, stunning landscapes or even Nasa Shuttle launches, the body of photography shared on Flickr with the Creative Commons licence is a bountiful resource of images. Needless to say, with both amateur and professional photographers uploading their work, style and technique -- as well as quality -- vary hugely. But among the pets and holiday snaps are images from skilled professional shooters and talented hobbyists.

 

Wired took a browse of the Creative Commons to bring you a gallery of some of our favourites -- and spoke to the photographers who shot them to discuss why they choose to publish under a CC licence, and what it means for their hobby or career."...

What does Creative Commons mean for photography?

"As of October 2011, 200 million images bore the CC-licensed photo mark.

 

Flickr keeps tabs of which of the six CC licences its photographers are opting for and, at last glance, it was one demanding attribution for the photographer, non-commercial use and the passing on of this licence for any further use that was proving most popular.

 

For photographers, the choices are fairly simple: Do they want their images only used non-commercially to preclude their usage by organisations that could profit from them; do they want to stop any derivatives being made; and do they want to pass on their level of licensing onto any further usage of the image. All six licences ensure that the photographer gets attributed for their work."...
