Screwed Again...

...this time by baby bjorn

so, last winter i came up with this idea and shot this image for patagonia and they were very psyched (i was very pleased with the outcome as well). it was slated to run in their early fall catalog but it just got axed. patagonia, being the business they are, have to get permission from every company which has a logo present, hence baby bjorn. it never even crossed my mind and much to patagonia's surprised too, baby bjorn denied the permission to use the photo and threatened legal action if the photo and/or like (i.e. logo photochopped out) was used. LESSON LEARNED but not without some bad words mumbled under my breath and out load...
