Model Releases and High Profile Politicians
Aug 19, 2009

Hi All,

Has anyone met legal troubles when reselling your images (on web or in print) of high profile politicians (Like the President of The USA), with multiple people as his backdrop?

I have 8 key images of the President and various people appear in them. These photos were derived from a tour stop in Montana, USA, of which I had the opportunity to be credential as part of the White House Press Pool. I want to sell the historic images as singles and in various sets to whom ever, but this concern is now upon my mind.

Any help with US law would be great on this concern, based on your professional experience. I think the images turned out excellent and are worth selling as a historic political event taking place in Montana history.
