    I'm mostly just curious, but you're apparently from Korea, yet your work is primarily in English. Is that common?

    As for your work, I like it. The warm, dark reds, browns and amber hues have...

    Your website will always reflect the kind of business you offer so it is just in time that you update your client's website. I like the large header, but the text on the upper portion of it looks dated....

    Looks like a bull right but it needs a little bit of polishing and enhancements. Bulls have basically long, curved very pointed horns so you can work on that. And maybe fiercer eyes....

  • Model Release....

    Question... (trying not to sound too much like Dwight Shrute):

    I am putting together a softball publication. I have a lot of photographs that I took around the parks with other people in the shot. Some are of crowds and stands intentionally to add to the publication.

    My question is do I need to get a model release for everyone in the image or what? I know there are some experts out there that can help...thanks in advance...and I know, no one here is an attorney and cannot offer legal advice....

        I believe you need one for anyone who is recognisible in the photo, but I may be wrong.

          We do sports catalogues but as I said we use models.
          I wouldnt mind knowing for sure either. For a publication, I don't think you need permission (if you do I broke alot of laws in the past). But I don't know for sure.
          For a catalogue I think you do regardless of wether their face is in it or not. I think it has something to do on wether you are selling a product or its a photo for a story. I have no basis for that except pulling from my own experience, so I could be totally off base.

          Again...I am no help.

                  Great article...
                  So, by reading that as long as it is a PUBLIC EVENT which all of the tournaments are...and all of the shots are of a public nature, (people in a crowd) and will only be used as editorial means not not commercial resale, then I am able to use the photo's without a release.

                  Thanks for the information and link...very handy.
