i have been organising shoots lately.
and i very honest to say that i have received a lot of photographers' pm telling me that i am not suppose to use the photos that i have posted up.
i have 100% asked the models can i take any photos from your multiply/friendster/portfilio.
and they said "can" happily. and i trusted them
and then the trouble comes.
i have been following my gf for some group shoots b4, and the organisers also just ask the models premission on behalf of the photographers in those group shoots. and the models never gave false info.(like photos can't be used, but she just tell e organiser to post up)
i dunno why models now become like this(is it bcos i am using models that are very new to CS? as i dun see any other new organiser having this problem), sometimes they dun even know that that particular photographers dun feel comfortable to let organiser to post his photos, until i tell them. and they even tell photographers i didn seek their permission to use the photos?(as i receved pm asking me did i get approved by the models to use the photos)
i dunno in what ways that we can stop this from happening(i have met one case that the photographer told me that he have told that model e photos can be only used by herself, yet e model told me i can use any photos from her portfilio). it was bad for both photographers n organisers. as photographers will get unhappy of seeing their photos being posted up as they dun feel comfortable, and reputation of organiser (ok mainly me) will drop.
