Photography is a fun hobby that I am looking to get back into. Before law school, I did a lot of environmental portraits (portraits outside) and landscapes. In this article, I have included a few photos I recently took while in Tacoma, Washington.
Depending on the type of photography that is practiced a bunch of laws can come into play, such as: contract law, copyright law, criminal law, etc. Unfortunately, legal problems can arise that turn a fun hobby into a big headache or more.
*** This article is only meant to be an overview of potential legal issues affecting photographers currently. This should not be relied upon for legal advice because each situation is fact-dependent.
