Many of the photographs in this site are of public property, so no releases are required for them.  But some photographs are of models or of private property.  These later pictures require proper use in order to avoid possible lawsuits.  To minimize liability, closely follow the recommendations of this part.  

In general, formal written model and personal property releases were not obtained for the photographs contained in this web site.  However, verbal or informal releases were normally obtained for pictures of people.

Model releases are not normally required for editorial and educational uses (such as books, magazines, reports, presentations, etc.).  The key is does the picture educate and inform?  If it does, it is probably is alright to use these photographs without releases.  This is the general pattern, but the laws on this aspect of "fair use," are often widely interpreted.  Because of this risk, consultation with a lawyer is recommended.  Without releases, it is strongly recommended that these pictures not be used in regard to sensitive, embarrassing or controversial issues.

On the other hand, commercial use requires signed releases.  Therefore,  photographs of a model or of private property, from this site, must not be used in product endorsements, advertisements, business websites or other similar commercial purposes.  It some rare cases, it may be possible to obtain releases, you may ask.  But getting permission will take time and the model, model agent, or property owner may want additional compensation.  So getting these releases is generally are not worth the effort.  Especially because the low resolution of many of these photographs that are usually not good enough for commercial purposes anyway.  Big stock picture agencies generally require releases and higher resolution photographs.  So they are often the best source for commercial use photographs.  If this is your primary need, check out our links page for many listings of these agencies.  This site does however have numerous high resolution pictures of scenery that do not require releases and are well suited for commercial use where models and/or private property are not involved.
