Find, Evaluate and Act - by Kiffanie Stahle

3 simple steps to control where your images appear online.

First, tell us a bit about you.
Hello! I’m Kiffanie Stahle, the founder of Stahle Law, a law firm serving creative entrepreneurs. I’ve been taking photographs from the ripe old age of seven and this gives me the unique ability to merge art and legalese. I love that my job is to support creatives on their journey to becoming successful and thriving creative businesses. I help them grow, protect their creations, and eliminate the surprises that could cost them thousands of dollars. My goal is to allow you to focus on what you do best – creating!

Tell us about your new eBook and why you wrote it.
We live in a right-click society and your images are constantly being used without your permission. Sometimes this is just the bump you need to get your work in front of the right audience, but sometimes it’s not (and you should be getting paid a licensing fee).
My new eBook is designed to put the control back in your hands. So you control where your work is being used – not other people. The eBook will give you:
    •    The tools to find where your work is appearing online
    •    The knowledge to evaluate what you can, can’t, and maybe shouldn’t do about it
    •    An action plan for how to act, when you choose to do so.

A lot has been written about how to conduct a reverse image search and those tools are important to the process. But I really think that the core of this book is the method that I teach you to evaluate what to do about the things you find. And since I love to boil things down in a visual manner, this method is centered on a chart I created with a kraft pad and Sharpie markers.

How can people get it?
You can purchase it through my website for $39. However, as a special thank you to your readers, I’m offering them 20% off through the end of February with the code: DOODLEBUGZ.

Anything else you want to share?
Yes! My favorite event each month is my Office Hours, which I host via Google Hangouts the 4th Wednesday of each month at 11am Pacific. Since it’s limited to nine participants a month, it’s a great chance for you to ask me questions and to learn from the struggles and challenges that other creative businesses are facing. I’m always amazed by the ideas, suggestions, and knowledge shared each month by the participants. If you are interested in joining you can email me at: or check out my Google+ page where I post the invite each month.

Are you an early riser? or night owl?
Total night owl. I try not to schedule appointments before 10am. I need my morning infusion of coffee before talking to people.

What is your favorite food?
If I have to pick one, then pickled items of all kinds: pineapple, grapes, carrots, garlic, peppers, and of course the original pickled item, the cucumber. But dark chocolate is a close second.

Where can people find you?
I’m @kiffaniestahle pretty much everywhere, but as a visual person, Instagram is where I’m most. You can also reach me through my website at:
