  1. Hello, Maybe this has been asked before but I'm researching now for hours and can't find an answer, so hopefully someone can point me to a good article or describe it with some rules to follow. The basics are clear but I still struggle for some pictures where it is not "exactly" clear if a property or model release is needed to sell it for commercial (maybe also for editorial). Here a few examples: a) Picture of a street, no person is really dominant in the picture but it is possible to identify the person (let's say you see more then 50% of the face) b) same situation as a) in the backround there is a car which could be identified as an BMW, Mercedes, etc. would I need a property release (I understand that property can also be a logo, brand/trademark, etc) c) Picture of a building (temple, church, tower, castle,...) from the streedt can be always used for editorial and for commercial if it is not protected by some other rules, correct? d) If I leave the street and enter a ground which is still open to the public (say there is no gate no entry fee, etc) can I still sell for editorial and commercial? e) If I enter a location where there is a gate/entry fee (park, castle, ...) can I sell for editorial without a propery release? f) Reading Alamy resources I got the following impression: I can offer a picture as editorial & commercial and if I state that I do NOT have a model/property release the customer can decide if he takes the picture or not (since there are different rules in different countries), so decision and risk are at the customer side, is this true? I hope someone can give some guidance with a few simple rules to follow. Thx, Andreas.
  2. I know that photos from sporting events sometimes have different requirements than other photos with people and/or property in them. Should my horse racing images (with jockeys) be RF/Editorial Only or Rights Managed? Any advice or info would be deeply appreciated.
  3. Hi, guys. I would like to ask RM or RF sells better your image. What kind of rights do you prefer to check your images on Alamy?
  4. I took down photos that I'd taken in Mexican museums. Most had people observing art work or being in juxtaposition with it (one contemporary Mexican had the same profile as the archaic paintings). I emailed for how permissions work and was quoted something like a $600 fee (if in Mexican pesos, that would be a little under $40 US, so do-able if that, not if in US dollars, but the reply was in Spanish). I may see if I can get retroactive permission for the photos, but think the better course might be to do it the right way from the beginning, and simply not take photos to offer on Alamy if the price is ridiculous. Am I being too scrupulous? One of my pictures was showing up on the first page in searches for the National Museum of Anthropology. Has anyone else gotten a permit to shoot there or at the other museums in Mexico City as a professional photographer?
  5. This may be a very silly question, but I'm new to stock photography and I just want to make sure I understand the legal boundaries of what happens once I make a sale. Am I still allowed to use that photo, since I am the original photographer (e.g. uploading to social media, personal blogs, etc)? Or do I lose all rights to access the photo once it's sold?
  6. This sale just popped in: Country: Worldwide Usage: Editorial Media: Editorial website Industry sector: Travel & tourism Image Size: Any size Start: 16 August 2016 End: 16 August 2021 India Rights What does that mean? Web/all rights in India are now restricted on that image? I wasn't asked about that, and the sale only netted me $3.51, so in principle I'd have refused if asked. In practice, I guess the chance of that particular file selling again in India is very remote, but who knows? But it brings up another, more general question. If someone has bought rights to an image for a particular country/area for web use, what does that actually mean, as any website can be viewed from almost every country.
  7. Hi! I just signed up and I have one question: if a buyer uses my image, will it have a watermark or will my name still be attached to this photo? I know that somewhere this question will have been answered. Just some info on my question would be very much appreciated!
  8. I thought I knew the answer to this question but I got confused today: If I sell my photo as Right Managed Exclusive do I have to delete that image for this period while license expires or not? Same question also for only Rights Managed. Please tell me where to look for this answer or tell me yoursef if you are familiar with this situation. Thanks in advance.
  9. Is anyone else familiar with this topic that can help explain it for me? Is this an inaccurate article that distorts the meaning of the law or are they serious and I need a $1500 permit to take stock photographs in U.S. National Parks? If so I sure won't be wasting any time or money visiting any of these parks. If true, it's quite sad. http://www.esquire.com/blogs/news/1000-dollar-fine-for-pictures-in-the-forest
  10. There was much debate in the other place about the legal position on photographing in public in France This article from the New York Times provides some very useful and timely observations http://lens.blogs.nytimes.com/2013/04/23/paris-city-of-rights/ km
  11. The China Daily newspaper wants to buy rights for an archive (30 years) picture of mine of some schol chlildren in a boat on a canal. They are saying normal rate is RMB 200. I think should be more. Experience anyone?
