Yes, if you are a model and did sign a contract that say’s the photographer could have your picture for sale on “Stock Webs” this could happen to you.
It happened to me, myself and is so funny that I’ve been laughing for over a year. Thing is I took some pictures of my self and put on a Stock web where they are for sale and company’s can buy them to use online or for printing. In this case the Tv show John Oliver was making fun of former Icelandic prime minister and talked about other ministers like the minister of liquor and showed a fake picture of me with a “Icelandic brennivin” in my hand which I did not have on the original picture.
This is how I looked like in that TV show.
And here is a link to the whole video. Me on John Oliver show
Finally I want to show you few of the pictures of me in that photography project I did 3 years ago. The project was women over xx age without makeup and with many expression in her face. I know I’m a photographer but not a model but I think I did OK, didn’t I?
Unfortunately I didn’t get rich or famous but this was a fame in Iceland for a day or two, LOL.
Untill next time,
Yours Kristin @Mirra
