    Coming late to the party, but were these pics taken by you as a contractor, or by you as a "work for hire" project?

    If you were a contractor, you own the copyright & can do whatever you like with them, assuming the appropriate releases.

    If it was "work for hire" the first client owns the copyright to any pics you took while on that project.

    You have to decide what's ethical. We can express opinions, but they'd most likely differ greatly amongst us probably wouldn't match your own sense of "ethical."

    Good point about work for hire. My policy is not to work for hire. What that means to me is that they are just trying to pay you as less as possible. If they do want work for hire, it's oh let's say a thousand an hour? How's that sound?
