Dear Appy: Including Wall Art in Photos

Marty C. asks: “If I am photographing a building or a house with artwork on the walls and a magazine wants to publish the images, are there copyright concerns regarding the artwork on the walls?”

Excellent question, Marty. In short, there are certain considerations you should take into account when incorporating other creative works into your photographs.

Can a Photographer’s Image be Re-Posted on Social Media?

One of the most common forms of Copyright Infringement we come across as photographers is our images being on certain social media accounts or pages without our permission.

Just Let The Photographer Do Their Job

When I was a baby architecture writer, a thousand years ago, I remember spending what felt like the majority of my work time asking my editors who’d commissioned stories, or publicists who were pitching me projects, or architects who’d decided to see if I might want to write about something, to send me pictures.
