By entering this site/blog, you agree to observe all US Federal and International Copyright Laws. IF YOU AGREE to the following, come on in and have fun!
I OWN all photos and text unless otherwise noted.
You do not use MY photos or MY stories to derive art, merchandise, articles, books, movies, documentaries or anything based upon MY intellectual property UNLESS you contact and credit me. You do not link to my photos by using my bandwidth (no hotlinking). You never embed my pages or posts or layouts into your site. You merely write your own text and/or link to my photos WITH live linked credit [details below].
I’ve licensed my photos for legitimate projects for decades. Just contact me and we can work it out.
NEVER copy/paste blocks of text or reproduce all or part of any web page or information. Google penalizes for “duplicate content.” DO NOT claim my text or photos as yours. It’s fine to write about my work in your own words. You can quote one line with credit. Just don’t lift whole parts and put on your site. That is called stealing.
People who steal from me, also steal from all the performers I shot, all the fans and people who want to see my pix and read my stories. All I wanna do is get my pix out there, and be compensated. As Iggy sang, “I gotta right!”
The ONLY reason I work on my archive 24/7 is to share a fascinating piece of history that I documented. I was aware I was part of a cultural revolution. I didn’t earn several art degrees and stay up many nights for many years reading art history and early movie history (my passion) for nothin’.
Refer to my Resume/Books/Docs page. My photos are the most published about the earliest LA punk scene.
I shot some of the MOST CLASSIC photos of PATTI SMITH, BLONDIE, RAMONES and other NY/Brit icons, as well as GERMS, X, SCREAMERS and so many more, 1976-1980. My photos are in MANY MAJOR books, magazines, documentaries, websites, merchandise, galleries, museums and major collectors. My photso have been in continuous international usages since 1976.
HOW TO LINK TO MY PHOTOS:
Here’s sample code for an image and live link back to me. Just insert proper info for where the images reside and their jpg name. Alt code is great for Google and other searches, and will bring peeps to your site, cos search engines can’t see images, only read alt tags. Alt code helps peeps find YOUR site! Alt code is limited to only text and commas, but no apostrophes or quote marks, cos they are used for the beginning and end of the alt tag info.
When you see [ use or upper case period, which is the close html tag: [img src=”http://flckr.com/123456789.jpg” alt=”So and so, Jenny Lens”] [a href=”http://punkpioneers.com”]So and so by Jenny Lens[/a]
Put this text on two lines — [img src] and [a href] lines — so the text is under, not next to pix. Now, this will not display correctly for some feed readers, but WTF, that’s a whole other lesson. Let’s tackle just those in front of their computers, for now.
Uncredited/unlinked photos violate my copyright and makes you a thief!
Thank you and write Jenny so we can reciprocate the link! 😆
