Hi, My name is Caitlin Renee Shores.
Call me Caitie.
I'm a music photographer.

I just had a local band print a photo of mine in their album without permission and without payment. I know posting and complaining about this is less than professional, but the reasoning on the band’s side as to why they can use the photo is ridiculous.

I (and every other photographer) is also sick and tired of hearing "Its great exposure!". Thats great, too bad we can’t pay our bills with that. Would you walk into your mechanic and have him work on your car then turn around and tell them you’ll tell people about them and that Its great exposure? No. Its absurd and you would probably get hit with a wrench, so why is it ok to tell a photographer that? If I rattled off the cost of my equipment alone you’d be shocked, then theres the years of learning my craft, but overall Its just rude and unprofessional. 

Can’t credit any original photography or artwork on this site, but when it’s fucking porn, ya’ll have enough room for links up the wazoo.

Some photos I got from Synyster Gates Master Class

Officially disgusted with Tumblr. Bravo, to the “Feminists,” commenting on my previous post:

Absolutely disgusting. I Even had some fairly offensive anons that I will not post. I personally just think we are at a point in time where forward thinking is upon us, and if you have to find castration funny or make jokes of it in order to validate your views, you’re disgusting.
On the other hand though, I do see a lot of others giving Feminism a good name on here and for that I thank you. I hate to generalize, and I truly believe most Feminists aren’t like this, but please; if you see ignorance around you, stand up to it.

Why is it that a lot of you “feminists” on tumblr claim to fight rape culture and misogyny, yet find so much humor in castration?

I have never seen any feminist find humor in castration unless it is in reference to a rapist or abuser. So, if that’s who you are defending, well, says a lot about your character. 

That’s cute. No, don’t you dare try to say I’m some kind of rape sympathizer. That says a lot about YOU trying to make it sound that way. And to further explain myself, I meant shit like this:

Tumblr. The only place you can find the word “castration” being thrown around this easily. Took me about 5 minutes to find just a few photos. Now if you’ll excuse me I’m pretty done with this side of Tumblr, so I’m gonna just not make anymore posts like this due to the ignorance I have to look at in the process. Peace.
