    In the case of an event and a model release as part of a contract, the contract signer cannot release the rights of people attending the event, only themselves. So using images from event photography for commercial purposes is problematic.

    However, being a public event people can have no reasonable expectation of privacy. About the only commercial situation that could be problematic would be subsequent image usage for advertising purposes.

    Since most of TPF's forum members are in the USA: In the case of US law, using images of that type for the promotion, portfolio, or sale to individuals by the photographer would not be considered "commercial".

    Of course Okinawa is a prefecture of Japan so US law would not apply there.
