In order for you to worry about someone stealing your images for their own commercial usage, you need to create a body of work that someone will want to steal for their own commercial usage. What does that mean? It means that the more photos that you shoot of your cat or your food, the less of a chance they have to be stolen. Why? Because there are loads and loads of cat and food photos out there. But if someone will want to steal yours for commercial usage, then the image has to have something very special about it.

Yes, that hurts. But it’s true.Chris Gampat
