A few weeks ago, an actor did something pretty amazing and was very kind to me. I received an email from an actor I did not know. He saw an image in an online ad showing two hands holding a residual check. When he enlarged the image, he saw that my name and home address was on the check. This Was So Nice The actor did not know if this was an ad I agreed to do, or if someone was using one of my images without permission. He was a little concerned since my name and home address could be seen. This kind person began contacting some agents within a 3 - state area of where I live. The actor was hoping one of them knew me, and could get my email address to verify that I knew about the ad. Here is a good example of a hand modeling job. We spent hours getting my hands and the money to look perfect in the shot Shocked I was really shocked when the actor sent me a screen shot of the ad. This national company did not have my permission to use my image. Immediately, I went to the company's website, got an email address and began preparing an email. I also consulted an attorney. She suggested I tell them to stop using the image immediately and delete all current ads running online. This Really Upset Me I felt very angry during this commercial modeling shoot I decided that along with them not using the add, I wanted to be paid. Since I did not know how much I should get, I told them that I wanted to be compensated for the usage. They came back with an offer that felt right to me. I signed a contract saying that the legal stuff was over and they promised not to use my photo anymore. What a Nice Person All of this happened because one incredibly nice person wanted to make sure that a fellow actor was not being ripped off. Not long after this happened, an actor contacted me to ask me to help with an issue she was having. We spent a good amount of time with me offering advice on how to proceed. The acting and modeling industry can be a competitive and cutthroat business, but it doesn't have to be. That is why I love surrounding myself with people who truly like helping others. To me, that is a great way to run my business and life. So, if you are ever in a position to help someone out, I hope you take advantage of this great opportunity and help make this sometimes very crazy world, a little less crazy, and help put it back together, one small piece at a time.
