The District Court of Hamburg adjudicated a couple € 2,500 per person on May, 28th 2010, because the photographer has used their wedding pictures without permission for advertising purposes. I take this occasion to spell out how I handle the publication of photos here in my blog, my portfolio and / or on my website.
Cause at Junge Fotografie - Nina Hüttmann nothing happens without the written consent of my customers!
The decision to book a professionell photographer always requires an appropriate amount of trust to the photographer, which in retrospect should not be violated in such a way. For this reason the protection of the personal rights of my customers has highest priority.
From time to time I ask my customers for permission to use their photos for my own representation. The intended use of the photos is clearly defined and may be limited as desired by the customer or rejected at all. The sale of photos to third parties is excluded in any case.
