Re: Photograph Thievery - What would you do?

From the document; This isn't to say that someone could claim they were being harassed just because they were being photographed when they didn't want to be. Harassment is essentially behaviour that causes another person alarm or distress and it refers to a course of conduct, not a single incident....

Re: Photograph Thievery - What would you do?

They would need to specify you not to take photos. On the contrary, the whole point of a "reasonable expectation of privacy" (as mentioned in the document you linked to) is that you don't have to make any statement that you object to being photographed - a reasonable expectation is one which is alr...

Re: Photograph Thievery - What would you do?

so you *do* need to tell them what you want to use the shot for and obtain their agreement to use it. Now, we could debate the value of a casual, half-remembered conversation on a river bank versus a signed contract, but both could be described as a "model release". The only difference is that one ...

Going back to the what originally drew me into this discussion - the guy in the open boat who didn't give his permission for the shot to be used in a brochure. Are you saying (in contradiction to several things above) that his permission wasn't needed? I thought the original question was from the p...

Re: Photograph Thievery - What would you do?

Hmmm quite a lot of contradiction and vagueness there. Here is your grilling... It depends on the use. Just because it is commercial it makes no odds. In the UK if someone willingly appears on camera for the purposes you specified to them then a release is not needed as far as UK law goes because th...

Re: Photograph Thievery - What would you do?

it's commercial use of the image which requires a model release. I'm afraid I can't quote chapter and verse of the law on this, but the image libraries insist on a model release for any image which features a person or people In the UK you do not legally need a release for people in photos or video...

Re: Photograph Thievery - What would you do?

The best advice you've had is to send them an invoice. Photo agencies have their images stolen every day - and they employ people to find them and send out invoices. Keep the amount realistic as you want to be paid, not forced to justify the amount to a court. Here is evidence that £100 is very reas...

Re: Ever wondered if there was water in Papa New Guinea??

I was once signed up for an expedition to PNG to take advantage of the geology for a different reason - caving. It was unexplored at the time but aerial surveys suggested it had huge potential. In the end we couldn't go due to political problems so we went to Norway instead. At the time - 1973 - lar...

Re: Over 20 surfing the same wave at once

Absolutely brilliant. So were they "playing" for pleasure? I think they were, even if Chris Packham doesn't think non-humans do that.

I once watched a couple of ducks ferry gliding back and forth between two eddies, apparently for no purpose other than because they could.

Re: coccyx injuries?

I swam on the Lower Guisane a few years ago - lying on my back, arms out, legs apart defensive swimming just like the books teach you. Then I hit a submerged boulder at full speed with my coccyx. As far as I know I didn't break anything, but it was a full year before I was finally free of discomfort.

Can't help you directly, but I would suggest that you also post your question about equipment hire etc on the Sea and Surf forum. You'll get more relevant readership there - and while I would never encourage you to post anything off-topic, it won't hurt to mention that you've also posted here.
