As a photographer myself, your best bet is to get word out. Even if you have to pay for a bit of advertising. Believe me, it will go a long way and then word of mouth happens.
For the "Bob Langrish-style" watermarks, you will need photoshop.
2009 Wedding - North Carolina
If it's something that I want to make sure nobody steals due to what's in the image, I do it like this:
2009 Presidential Address - Camp Lejeune. I was part of the press pool for the newspaper.
You can also do them smaller:
2009 Boudoir Style Photo Shoot
Or smaller in the corner - straight across:
2009 - Children's Photo Shoot
For landscape photography I try to make it large, but not distract from anything else:
2009 - Atlantic Ocean - North Carolina Coast
That won't ensure that your photos aren't stolen, as I can Photoshop any of the texts out of an image. But it dose help deter people.
Are you trying to sell your prints only or are you doing portrait as well?
Also, don't use the term "pre-took" photography. Instead say "prints" and "previously drawn art".
You may also want to look into custom copyright. Creative Commons
has terms pre-written for you. Most of my photography and art is done under these rules:
Under the following conditions:
- to Share — to copy, distribute and transmit the work
- Attribution — You must attribute the work in the manner specified by the author or licensor (but not in any way that suggests that they endorse you or your use of the work).
Attribute this work:
What does "Attribute this work" mean?
The page you came from contained embedded licensing metadata, including how the creator wishes to be attributed for re-use. You can use the HTML here to cite the work. Doing so will also include metadata on your page so that others can find the original work as well.
- Noncommercial — You may not use this work for commercial purposes.
- No Derivative Works — You may not alter, transform, or build upon this work.
Also, I think that the pages need to sound a bit more professional. Such as "If you request one, I will think it over and we can go from there"
What would sound a bit better is: "If you request a photo with the intent to sell, terms will be discussed, a sum will be decided and if certain limits are met, the photo will be yours to do with what you please."
