Earlier today, I saw a Rachel Maddow Show Facebook post about a photograph Jeb Bush is using in campaign materials in Iowa. There's a kerfluffle about his left hand, which [seems to] clearly shows the photo was a composite using a black man's body to substitute for Jeb's.
Photoshopped Jeb Bush Photo
The original photograph has now surfaced. I apologize for getting it wrong. But it is still poorly done.
The name says it all: I am a photographer and lawyer in the Los Angeles area. I am sometimes an adjunct instructor of photography at a community college. I occasionally write, and am often asked to speak, on the business of photography and legal rights of creators.
I am licensed to practice law in California and I am an active member of the California Bar. I am entitled to practice in all California state courts and I have been admitted to practice in the Federal District Courts for the Central District of California, the Southern District of California and the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.
This blog is not intended to solicit clients, set up an attorney-client relationship with anyone, or be interpreted as practicing law outside of the state of California. While I am willing to answer business and legal questions to help send you in the right direction, legal comments are for general information only and readers should consult attorneys in their own states for specific legal advice.
