I know it must disappoint you but Ilford will be making silver gel paper and black and white film years from now because there is solid if not steadily increasing demand for it, ask Simon about that.

As for posting photos on photo enthusiast forums, I have to take a pass for the most part, not the greatest idea if I want to continue to make a great living at it. I am currently in a court battle with a pop artist who somehow got ahold of an aerial image that is under a 3 year exclusive contract. He used it prominently in a 50" x 50" inch piece and sold it for 14K, client not happy and neither am I.

Sorry Ratty, I can't be your guy but I sure as heck promote film use by showing my little portfolios of hand made prints to people in person, that works too...

I'm in no position to dictate what a working pro does with his images. You and all the others are a special case. You might post some throw away shots. Or, partake in the thread as a commentator. My point was to make that thread THE most active thread in the alternative FM forum. Generate traffic, keep it visible, bring in new people.

It can work if done right.

Good luck with your case to claim your rights to your own work!
