Hi all, I'm new to the forums, please be nice This is the story... I am teaching myself website design and I've started putting together a website for a local beauty salon. I am no professional photographer but have a decent camera and decent knowledge of picture retouching (lightroom and photoshop, I shoot RAW). I offered to take some pictures of the staff and the premises for the website. I got them to sign both model and property releases. My query relates to pictures I took of branded products (beauty products they use in the salon). These pictures are meant to be put into a slideshow, showing both pictures of the premises and the products they use. They are not going to be used in a way that may suggest these companies endorse my client's services in any way. So my query is this - do I need permission from these companies to use these pictures commercially?? Just to be on the safe side, I emailed the companies as there was only 3 of them, but only 2 have replied (both saying it's ok to use the pictures, one asking to link back to them if possible). But I was wondering, what if I were to do the same job for, say, a pub, and I took of picture of a shelf full of bottles? It'd be a pain to have to contact each beverage company separately!! But I'm very nervous about the possibility of committing copyright infringement. Any advice would be very much appreciated!! Thanks in advance!
