Another wedding photographer question - who owns the photos?

Posted by Mike Voss on Friday, October 21, 2011, In : wedding photography 
Who owns the photographs taken at our wedding? 

Photographs are copyrighted as soon as they are created.
The photographer owns the photos and reproducing them without permission
is a crime at worst, and bad karma at best. It's stealing. It's also a copyright violation for
your local drug store to print them for you so if you want to reproduce them legally
ask your photographer to provide digital images on a disc and a ''reproduction rights letter''.
This is the right way to go about getting ...

You can search the internet, or the yellow pages. Attend bridal fairs

family and friends, especially anyone yo...

To make better photos carry a camera

Posted by Mike voss on Saturday, October 8, 2011, In : improving your photography 
 

This photo was made along the lakefront in Chicago during
a winter family outing. I was driving on Lakeshore Drive
in Chicago when this caught my eye. My wife saw it at the
same time and knew we would be stopping to photograph it.
She knows we will always be stopping.

We pulled into a parking lot and I got as close as I
could before getting out of the car. It was brutally cold with a
stiff wind, and the ground was covered with a thick coating
of Lake Michigan ice which made walking diffic...
