>> I have to thank Eliza of Style Salvage for being the diligent web digger that she is and spotting some unpleasantly watermarked images on Getty. The one on the right just below was me horsing around with Tommy Ton and Phil Oh in front of me. I had no idea that a photographer named Ben Hilder was snapping away and subsequently sending them to Getty (same goes for the rest of the watermarked images here…). I frankly find it odd that even searching the name Susie Bubble on Getty yields a single thing, considering it's one of those sites I used to stalk to check out images of Adrien Brody (it's his crooked nose that does it for me…) and other random man/boy crushes. Even funnier that someone potentially has to pay upwards of $300 to buy one of these pics for editorial purposes as verified by a very friendly Getty customer service person I chatted to online. RIP-OFF ALERT! Don't do it!
I posed a dumb blonde question on Twitter asking "Surely the subject of the photo has some rights to the photo itself?" knowing full well how the pap game works. Photographer rules all. End of. There ends hope of using my goof-off pic below as my new profile picture to send to magazines, eschewing prim n' proper poses in favour of a WACK-ATTACK stance.
Anyhow, this sounds like a terribly silly and shallow plight to even be devoting paragraphs to. It's basically a round about way of saying "Hey, here are some outfit pics from fashion week…"
