Ok then. Leaving for Dragon Con Wednesday,  and there will be no activity on this account until at least the Tuesday following. I will try to check messages Tuesday before I shut down the systems and bring everything here at home and the studio to a standby condition.

There will be lots of photos of the con, cosplayers, and other nifty stuff on my art account once I get back. A few will possibly find their way here, but none that have any of the con goers in them. Possibly some park and city shots, interesting angles and stairs and such for the backgrounds, things like that might get posted here.

"Why no con photos here?" The simple answer is that you cannot legally place as stock, photos taken of people at events, unless you have specific permission as in a model release, from those people including anyone in the image. You MAY use those photos in an editorial sense, but you do not have the right to put them up as stock. I have quite a few images of models and folk from dragon con because we specifically shot for the purpose of stock and I have full commercial releases from each of them. General crowd, no. I do know quite a few people do put event photos of cosplayers, costumed folk, and performances on as stock, but the truth is, that is no legal stock unless they can produce releases, not only from the individuals, and or groups and managers, but often from the venue also. There is such a thing as a location, or property release.

We do have plans to shoot stock at the con, since that is one of the few times some of us can actually meet face to face, due to financial and travel issues.

Have a very delightful Holiday if you are in the US, and find the time to enjoy the heck out of the coming weekend anyway, even if you are not in the US doing the Labor Day end of summer madness.
