Hello everyone. I'm totally new here so I'm sure I will probably get razzed a little for being a newb. Anyway, here is my question. Does anyone know what kind of legalities there are about photographing commercial property and selling the prints? A photo brainstorming session with my boyfriend tonight brought out this idea. We live in Alberta, Canada. As per stereotypical he works in the oilfield. I was brainstorming photo subjects and said that I could probably have a lot of fun shooting on a rig of the various equpiment and structures. He suggested that money could be made doing this. I immediately thought of contacting coporate offices and working throught them, photographing each of their rigs. He thought of going out to the individual rig sites and handing out business cards. Apparently the people that work on these rigs sometimes get kinda attached to them. They like the location, or a certain view, or something about the rig they are on. He suggested that I try to make a business out of selling prints of the rig to these people. I like the idea, I think it could work. BUT, at the same time I am not sure what the legal issues would be. I know that I can photograph the rigs for my own personal use, but I'm not sure if there would be special permissions that I would have to get in order to sell these prints... Anyone got any ideas for me? I know I should probably go talk to a lawyer about it, but at this point its just a brainstorm so I would just like to see what people think. If it ever goes anywhere I would definately go to a lawyer about it. Let me know what you think! Thanks!
