Are those pictures of his actual clients?? If not there could be copyright issues and it would definitely be too commercial. —PeteB

They look like it. Book 1 in thumbnail form is watermakered Stephen Kui who was the uploader

this user does run a professional photography studio, it's not a stretch to think they would have a massive portfolio of good photos ~SD

Under NO circumstances may any of the images on this page be used for any purpose without the explicit written permission of Stephen Kui, and these images are NOT released under Creative Commons,(meaning it's illegal to use these pictures anywhere)."

I guess my concerns are, one, whether the page just looks like one big glossy ad (it does to me), and two, whether its really good to have the wiki have pages with so many pictures on it that are not released under released under Creative Commons (seems less than ideal).

However, other photography pages may have similar issues, if I recall correctly. So that is something to consider as well.

I'd like to hear others' thoughts on this. —CovertProfessor

2013-02-27 14:32:24   I saw that notice but CP asked so I gave my opinion. Maybe an idea is to lay out the pictures on a subpage users can see and leave a few on this one—PeteB

2013-02-27 14:34:58   I think there should be a maximum number of photos that a business owner or employee can contribute. Such a number would be arbitrary, but it seems like a better alternative to letting business owners have free reign over an informational resource that is meant to be authored by the community. —ScottMeehleib

A lot of us try and put together beautiful pages about stuff we are passionate about, and I imagine this guy is probably just doing the same. We shouldn't punish him for trying to do a good job. He hasn't deleted any comments or defaced anyone elses page. Also, I have more photos on the random camera page than this page. —jefftolentino

2013-02-27 15:44:49   One issue here is whether the page is in violation of the wiki's For Profit Restrictions. (These restrictions are the main reason why it matters that this is a for-profit business).

The wiki community has not said that there should be a limit on the number of photos. However, the page created, together with the for-profit restrictions, raises the question of whether there ought to be one. Other pages might be affected by this decision as well. —CovertProfessor

2013-02-28 09:28:35   I personally like all the photography. There's some great work there. My only concern is whether it runs afoul of for-profit restrictions.

One possibility for making it a bit more informational or educational in tone might be to organize it by category, write a little bit about each category, and maybe describe some info about where, how, and with what the photos were taken - especially if there are connections to Davis. —TomGarberson
