I was wondering if its ok to upload objects/ exhibits I've photographed in museums and galleries ?


Recently taken photos of marble busts of famous people, terracotta army(in Liverpool), paintings, clocks, etc.

You need to check with the museum/gallery.


Many have policies which restrict photography for anything apart from personal non-commercial use. But  others aren't bothered and welcome any free publicity.


I took some recently in a small museum and afterwards found out that it was against their rules. In the end though they allowed me to use them for stock and I allowed them t use them for their own purposes. 


Generally smaller museums are going to be more interested and bigger ones more corporate and official. 

Thank you. Guess I''ll have to email the museums/galleries first then.
