I had an interesting experience at a local “Wally World”. I took the digital versions of my daughters senior photos, which I took, to be done in 1 hour because she has to turn them in on Tuesday. When I went to pick them up I wasn’t allowed to because I didn’t have a singed notice from the copyright owner. When I explained that I had taken the photographs, I was informed the photos were taken in a professional studio and again informed that those photos where the property of that studio and unless I had a release form from the studio, they couldn’t give me the photos.
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>After a 20 minute argument I had to fill out a form saying I was a photographer and the copyright owner of the photos. “In the future”, I’m supposed to inform them that I’m the copyright owner and I have a copyright form on file. Being the owner of my studio and the fact I am the one who took the photos. I guess I’ll apply my right and post them here tomorrow.
