Legal Issues in Photography

February 5, 2020 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

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

This course will provide an overview of the types of legal issues encountered by photographers including contracts, copyright and fair use, the right of publicity, and corporate entity formation. We will also discuss major considerations that photographers face when hired for a project.

In addition to photographers – visual artists, artistic directors, photo editors, photo agencies, and photo studios could also benefit from attending this course.

This class will be taught by Tatsuya Adachi, Esq., VLA Associate Board Member.
