Pricing, Copyright, Law and Organisation
Tuesday, 15th Feb 7pm - 8:30pm
This session covers some of the most important but confusing and misunderstood aspects of the law and business that are specific to working photographers. Redeye’s Director Paul Herrmann addresses:
- How to price any kind of photography;
- Different pricing models and approaches, their pros and cons;
- The importance of copyright and what you need to do to protect your work;
- The essential link between pricing, copyright and licensing;
- An overview of other legal issues affecting photographers including access, privacy, private property, your rights and responsibilities;
- The crossover between the law and ethics;
- The essential paperwork you need for every shoot or commission.
With a background in editorial photographer with a social, political and arts perspective, Redeye’s Director Paul Herrmann has supported hundreds of photographers in every different genre to develop their photographic work and careers through Redeye’s programme of events, courses, professional development, opportunities, advice and information.
Alongside Redeye he’s set up a range of photographic organisations and projects: he is currently Director of the Photographic Collections Network, and a regional chair of WhatNextCulture.co.uk, a nationwide movement to inform and shape the future of the arts and culture.
He has a particular focus on helping photographers to start new, often collaborative, projects and businesses, find new markets and make new contacts, and build a balanced career that mixes income generation with meaningful and fulfilling work.
