About this Workshop

You can’t afford to ignore the legal issues in photography!

This workshop will provide an overview of the types of legal issues encountered by photographers including contracts, copyright protection and enforcement, the right of privacy, and the use of social media platforms. We will also discuss major considerations that photographers face when hired for a project, and provide helpful tips on preemptive steps photographers can take in protecting their works and enforcing their rights.
