so here is the situation... I've been shooting for a motorsports for about 3 years now and I've hit my first wall. This season I decided to go through the organization to get a media pass which turned out to be a mistake. Long story short we didnt see eye to eye on their aggresive tactics, not paying their photographers, owning all rights to the images (big mistake), and down right treating their photographers like ****. only perk being that they allowed us to sell photos. SO... now I'm trying to find away to keep on shooting these events without them owning any rights. I plan on sending my own contract to them but considering how stubborn they are I doubt they will sign it. So here are my questions.... - how spectators get away with showing and at time selling images? - can you be a team photographer and just have that team own the rights? for example being a photographer for the cowboys VS the NFL. also could you get permission from the event location (track) to shoot photos? this is a whole new world for me and any input would be great. Thanks!
