I designed my watermark (left) in 2007 for a Christian Fellowship (CF) rally called the Meta Aftershock (organized by La Salle, Klang CF). Finding plain text as a watermark boring, I decided to use one of my favorite logos (that I designed) as the watermark for my amateur photographs.

Jon Chan is just a short form of my full name (Jonathan Chandrasakaran, if you haven't already know) given to me during La Salle, Klang CF's Camp Metamorphosis 2007 (more commonly known as Meta Camp). It was kinda weird the first time reading/hearing my name as Jon Chan but I grew comfortable with it. I added JonChan to my watermark because the length of the name fit properly with the logo, as opposed to my initials JC (it was just too big with only two characters on the drumsticks, making the watermark ugly).

I've absolutely no problem with people using my pictures for whatever reason. To be honest, I'd feel happy if anybody decides to use my pictures at all. It'll be nice if you could keep my watermark in the picture. But if you decide to crop the watermark out, just give me credit by linking back to my blog or something. If you don't... Well, I really hope you would reconsider giving me credit for my pictures.

If you would like to use some of my photographs for traditional or electronic publications, please inquire on this blog in the comment section below.

I use a Nikon D90 with a VR AF-S NIKKOR 18-55mm 1:3.5-5.6 G lens for landscape, a VR AF-S NIKKOR 55-200mm 1:4-5.6 ED lens for wildlife, and an AF NIKKOR 50mm 1:1.8 D lens for macro and videography. For underwater photos, I am using a GoPro HERO 4 Silver gifted to me by my girlfriend (see how you have been mentioned in this blog). Sometimes on this blog, I will feature "macro" photos of close to microscopic beings. Those pictures were taken using my workplace's Dino-Lite Digital Microscope AM4515 Series.

(I photograph landscapes and wildlife for fun. I am not a professional photographer. I am currently enjoying photographing butterflies.)
