Property release advice please

Hello group,

I am relatively new to AS, so please excuse me if this seems a silly question...I have been reading everything I can find in the forums but can't seem to find the specific anwser.

When obtaining a property release for a famous building, is it as simple as attaching the relevant document to a nice email asking them to sign it? Obviously I would have to actually find the correct email address, fill it in etc.....

Is that how it works? I have read about the age limit and can work that out where required. I have also seen the info about editorial content after 100 downloads, so I have a way to go with that.

Thank you in advance for any advice.

It does not matter how you go about getting the release signed. Important is that you get a release signed by a person that is authorized to give you permission.

Do your homework ahead of time.  Before you travel to destinations to take pictures, check their websites to see what their photography policies are.  Some places, particularly landmarks, have restrictions on what you can and can't photograph and what your photos may be used for -- private personal use or commercial use.

You need to get someone authorized to sign, to sign the property release. It depends on the situation. Obviously, if you photograph inside a house, you can ask the property holder directly to sign it, if you photograph a public building, you need to find out, who is authorized to sign this.

 

Not all pictures can be used for illustrative editorial, it's not an easy solution to circumvent the property release.

Also bring along blank release forms for property & models in case you need them.

=============

Actually no, you don't. Here's why.

 

Adobe procures Editorial content from trusted partners & news agencies only (Reuters, AP, AFP, etc...)  Editorial content depicts newsworthy events like war photos, a spaceship launch, or natural disaster.

 

Illustrative Editorial content is conceptual imagery designed to illustrate articles. This type of content often features images of real brands and products — like signs on buildings, soda cans, computers, and cars — to convey a story in journalism. Illustrative Editorial content cannot be used commercially which significantly reduces its sale & use potential for Stock customers.  IOW, this is not a  workaround for failing to have proper release forms.  See guidelines below for more details.

Hope that helps.
