Well after a busy week I finally have a chance to do an update.  This was last night in Newport Beach, California.

Our travels to Arizona went well.  The next day we drove to Anza-Borrego where we encountered a pretty good rain storm – the area really needed it!  We have now moved on to Newport Beach and I’ll be here for the next week and a half or so.  Unfortunately, this isn’t my new boat, although I would be thrilled with the little skiff at the stern!

It feels good to be done with the processing, captioning and key-wording our photos from last winter’s travels.  Now we can send them off to agencies and update our website – finished just in time for summer, so we can make room for a new batch of photos!

Let me start by saying, you shouldn’t get your legal advice from friends and fellow photographers.  Having said that, let me offer some advice.  🙂

The place I turn to when I have questions is the Photographer’s Legal Guide by Carolyn Wright.  The book covers most of the legal issues one might encounter when dealing with photo business and photography issues such as copyrights, model releases, insurance and paperwork.  I think most photographers will find it very valuable. 

I have known Carolyn for a number of years now and consider her a friend – she is a wonderful person, and as a fellow photographer, she understands the industry and issues photographers face.  We have hired her on occasions when we needed large contracts reviewed, and also successfully used her for a copyright infringement suit – who better to hire then the person who wrote the book!  Read More
