Photographers: the rights and wrongs of photographing people in public

Date: Tuesday 19 April 2005
Time: 5pm - 7pm

Association of Photographers
81 Leonard Street

Fully booked

Photographing the public, in public places, on beaches and in bus queues is a very common creative activity - but do you actually have the right to do it? And what are the rights of those being photographed? This Own It event will concentrate on what you can and cannot photograph outside the confines of the studio, the ins and outs of model and property releases and how you manage these contracts.
