Publishing Photos of Dive Boats
Posted 08 July 2006 - 06:11 AM
I have been approached by a magazine that wants to buy the over / under shot to use in an article in the magazine.
I'm obviously flattered and eager to accept the offer. The photo does show the the name of the liveaboard.
Are there any modeling rights or permission issues I need to be concerned about?
Do I need to get a release from the liveaboard to sell this photo?
The text accompanying the article is not derogatory in any way. The fact that the name of the boat is visible is probably beneficial to the liveaboard.
Thanks for your input!

As I take pictures through the world and habitually have them published, I suggest you do not worry. Remember, the human face is not a work of art and a boat has no legal rights!
NB. I am not a Queen's Council so please disregard all of the above advice!
I buy my own photographic kit. Diving equipment manufacturers and diving services suppliers get even-handed treatment from me whether they choose to advertise in the publications I write for or not. All the equipment I get on loan is returned as soon as it is finished with. Did you know you can now get Diver Mag as an iPad/Android app?
