Re: Using Photos of Strangers?


Folks out in public have no "expectation of privacy," and can be photographed. An image taken like that can be used without their permission for news, art and such things but It could not be used for "commercial" purposes like an advertizement. You can legally sell an image like this for non-commercial purposes without the consent of the people in the photo. I am not a lawyer and I am sure there are nuances so if you plan on making money you should consult one...

Good luck and snap away with impunity

I am not a photographer, I am just a guy that takes pictures.
