Hey folks! So I haven't posted in a while, still in a bit of a slump and working so much and also dealing with... yet again, stolen work. It puts a damper on things. Luckily I have friends here and in some other places that alert me when something doesn't look right and in this case there is a guy on Ebay selling my work for 200 a pop and all he is doing is adding cheesy filters and hes even got the balls to watermark it. I have my lawyer working on this but so far they are still up there. Here are the images I speak of, the top one being found in a store in New York and the bottom on Ebay.Received 554630144724323 1470618630109 by DR0ckS-l500 by DR0ck

Be ever diligent and watch out for people who cant make their own art and thank you to those that blow the whistle on them.
I love fan art and people who ask permission to use or reproduce my work but I worked too hard to make these and I feel like watermarks are both ineffective and take away from the image so the thing to do it seems is just not post or make them so small that its almost pointless. These ripoffs aren't even high quality as some have even mentioned on his site but people are buying them.
I just wanted to say I'm still out here and want to do more, and I will but there is business to handle first! 
Submitted by Brian taman88.deviantart.com/ this is a really cool take on a shot I did of Emily. I like how it is recognizable but it took a creative and artistic spin.. thanks Brian!

On a side note, I get asked often if people can do drawings or edits and I almost always say yes if you show me the work, link it back to the original and its not for commercial purposes!
Sadly, 95% of people who I grant permission to I never hear from again which worries me almost to the point of not allowing it anymore but its things like this which make me glad I havent done that yet.

  • Playing: with my mind
  • Eating: I wish!
  • Drinking: definitely need to!

All images on this site are Copyrighted by DRockPhotography and may not be used in any manner or medium, commercial or non-commercial, without express written permission. This is out of respect for the copyright laws, me and the models appearing in these images.

I do not wish to seem irrational but it is unnerving to find your work edited and then posted somewhere else! I like to post my images at a nice resolution for all to enjoy and I do not want to be forced to re-think because of copyright violations.
On the other hand, if you are interested in owning a print just make a request and I will be happy to do what I can depending on the particular image. Thank you!

Having some issues with some stolen work again, was going to post something about it soon actually. Also, haven't had a lot of time to shoot lately but dealing with thieves kinda takes it out of me as well... but I will be back ;)
