    Red face photographs please!

    at the moment i have just started an oil painting unit in college we have to pick a theme and i would like to do caithness, however i wont be back in caithness till about a week and may need more photos when i cant get back up the road , so if anyone has photos they dont mind being used in paintings then could u post them here, i've been looking around and there are some brilliant photos on here! things with dramatic skys or seas are what i was looking at but any landscape photo would be much appreciated. but they have to be in caithness

    thanks in advance
    I'm here for a good time, not a long time!

    Hi peedie

    I have no wish to offend you, but please bear in mind that all photographs published here are the copyright of the photographer / owner unless expressly stated otherwise. Written permission may be required before they can be used for anything other than displaying on the web with a credit to the photographer. Use for commercial purposes or gain is usually forbidden without full agreement of the photographer or their agent, this may include the copying of an original photograph onto a painting.

    While I don't doubt your keenness and sincerity in what you are doing, I must point out that many good photographs have been copied by artists onto paintings and sold for high profits without the consent or agreement of the original photographer who receives nothing, many other photo's are taken from the web and used in advertising without the owner being aware. Might I suggest you draw up a release form so that any willing participants can offer their photo's either freely or for a small agreed fee.

    Having said that, I'm sure that there are many fine photographs of Caithness and Sutherland on this forum and others just waitng for the chance to be copied in oils.

    It would just be a lot less hassle all round if anyone who didn't want their photos copied in oils for peedie's college course were to post that fact in this thread.

    After all......would anyone have known if he had copied one of the photos from here if he hadn't had the decency to ask for permission?

    Good one Oddquine, Peedie, if you see a photo you like, pm the subscriber for permission, simple

    That's the whole point, there are many instances of photograph's being used for all sorts of commercial purposes without the photographer being made aware of it. It's only when they happen to see their photo in print, or someone tells them they've seen a painting just like their photograph hanging in a gallery that they realise. A well known painting of a group of horses in full gallop on the Camargue is a good example, this was originaly a photograph which was copied without the photographers knowledge, he never even received a credit for it until he went to court over copright. If someone want's to use a photograph that has been posted on a web site then it's only common decency to ask if it's ok, in most cases I'm sure it will be. If peedie cares to ask I have no objection, providing the use of the photo is credited.

    I can see your point if anyone was making money out of it...........but in this case it is to be a subject for a college art course, and it is more than highly unlikely that anyone on here would ever have known if it hadn't been mentioned.

    Anyway, how would anyone ever be able to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that a) the person who did a painting hadn't seen the scene with their own eyes, particularly if it was of their home area.......or b) that their photo was the only one ever taken of the subject?

    Red face oops!

    eek didnt mean to rattle any cages!!

    nirofo the whole point of this thread was so people could let me know if they had any photos they were willing to let me use for my art course, anyone concerned about copyrights clearly would not add photos, and i intend on giving full credit to the owner of the photo, since the painting is only half the developement.
    i think i will in future use golachs suggestion of PMing the owner of a photo i like and ask them if it is ok to use it.
    oddquine....i'm a she
    I'm here for a good time, not a long time!
