          Hi D!



          My pictures were all taken with various phones. So the quality is not as good as a big-ass digital camera. Also, I'm far from a professional photographer. I just snap shots of things I like

            Wrong (in America at least). You are only on the wrong side of the law if you are violating the subjects' rights. For ordinary people, the biggest issue would be is if someone is violating your rights if you are expecting privacy.



            So, yes, if you are secretly filming someone boinking in their bedroom, you are violating the law. If you are secretly filming someone just walking down the street, you are *not* violating the law.



            Other issues that the person can sue over are things like defamation, where the photo was deliberately taken for malice purposes. They may not win. Most people are not defamed by simply walking down the street. The plaintiff has the burden of proof.



            Copyright is another issue, for people whose actual image makes them money, and/or when the photo is being used *to* make money (eg in an advertisement). Most people are not famous enough for this to apply. Ordinary published photos are different than advertisements.



            Photographer's rights






            I meant to sell as in commercial work. Sorry if that was not clear, hence my caveat it's just a rough guide. If your doing work for profit study study the law!



            The exception would be to sell to a news paper if the photo's were in the public interest. This is rare and in some cases you still could be done for exploiting your access if it was a friend etc that had become the target of press interest.



            Generally for commercial sales, and I really meant things like advertising, I am sure model release is pretty similar in the states as it is in the UK.



            Lets give you an example that is not so obvious to most:



            keybdwizrd uses a photo of a man in Russia on his record cover to enhance sales. He becomes an over night success and multi million pounds key playing star (I am sure this will happen one day )



            The chap from Russia gets tipped off. A law firm agree to pursue the case on a no win no fee arrange and then prosecute keybdwizrd for not getting a model release.



            BTW way a model release also requires some form of payment to the subject, don't think a signed piece of paper will always stand up in court. You can be accused of exploitation.

              And let's remember that here in America, at least, anybody can sue anybody anytime for anything, regardless of the actual law.

                Thank your lawyers for this. It's the only job that is legally monopolistic and self generating. There needs to be some laws against what lawyers are allowed to do... but oh wait! Guess WHO makes the laws? And profits from them? It's a crime

                  "Foreign lands" photos are better ... Technically speaking, not stunning, but at least there's some content ...

                      Ah, okay. You are correct there. In practice, the big distinction is commercial applications. You really don't need a model release form for photographic exhibits or even if you sell prints of a photograph ("art" applications).



                      You *do* need a model release form the instant you slap that photo on an advertisement, album cover, commercial web site, kiosk, or any "business" application -- at least, if you are making money. Elsewise, the person could sue for a piece of the profit that comes from using their likeness. (If you are not making money from said image, no one is going to sue, of course. )

                                The last photo in the group above was taken from up on a bluff overlooking Santa Monica Beach, near Los Angeles.



                                I have been fortunate to travel a fair amount - years of business travel in the US left me with lots of frequent flier miles to use for vacations. In September we will be in Istanbul!
