#594 Photography and Copyright

Whether you have hired us for a photography assignment or you are taking one of our photo workshops or safaris around Ottawa, copyright is a big deal.

Why?

Copyright represents who owns a photo and this affects you if you have hired someone to photograph you or you are posting your own photos on the web, Facebook or in an email.

Kevin F, graduate of many of our photo workshops forwarded me an article on “Photography, Copyright, and the Law” by Carolyn E Wright, a US lawyer.

In Canada there are some important differences – legislation is undergoing some changes that will bring Canadian copyright legislation in line with much of the rest of the world.
