    This review is from: Legal Handbook for Photographers: The Rights and Liabilities of Making Images (Legal Handbook for Photographers: The Rights & Liabilities of) (Paperback)

    In today’s world photographers are often questioned or confronted with what they are doing. More overzealous people exist today, including a few law enforcement or security officers trying to protect perceived rights or restrictions. The overzealous protectors, coupled with many photographers who do not understand when it is appropriate to tactfully address the situation or simply move on, could effectively reduce our ability to photograph what is currently within our rights, morals, and ethics.

    Bert P. Krages lays out what is clear, not so clear and pure myths. He provides guidance on how to deal with certain circumstances and the reasoning for doing so.

    Photographers also need to be concerned with protecting the rights to their photographs and knowledgeable enough not to practically give away their rights. Along with being concerned for the content and privacy of others when appropriate.

    The book covers almost every situation a photographer needs to be concerned with and provides specific examples.

    I didn’t read the other editions of this book but just got my hands on a copy. Seriously, this should be required reading for anyone serious about photography. What I like is that it talks about certain scenarios you may find yourself in and what and how to avoid issues. It mostly speaks to cases that have already occurred, but it’s SO HELPFUL!!! I am half way through it now but have already recommended it to all my colleagues!

    This is a must buy!
