    I've still not been paid from my post I made above. Don't know if to chase, or just forget and move on.

  2. Yeah I know, hence why: Network Rail charging a professional for taking...

    NT won't have a leg to stand on if you take a snap of something whilst not physically on their property though, same as a photo of a train station from a public street.

    The National Trust has many failings, but people making money by taking photos of their properties and using them in commercial ventures should cough up something, imo.

    In their properties, yes. But charging amateurs and semi pros for taking a pic out in the wilds? GTFO.
     
  4. Ah, didn't know they planned to charge amateurs, that would be wrong.

    National Trust photography restrictions are implemented by actual law, not just policy, entry T&Cs etc

    Chase the fuckers, give them 7-days notice of County Court action, that normally works.

    mauvais change has become unavoidable

    This is of import because it can directly produce a criminal offence rather than, say, a breach of contract or a matter of (usually civil) trespass.

    Where does it mention taking photos in the open air?

    Chase. They owe you that money.

    (And welcome to the world of freelancing. Having to chase is way more common than it should be.)

    That's fucking ridicuous. I've gone right off the National Trust now. It's fair enough if people are bringing in a full production crew for a pro photoshoot, but an amateur getting lucky and selling a pic to the local rag or whatever? Fuck them.

    They look after hundreds of miles of coastline too, How the fuck can they even dream of enforcing such a stupid law?

    Chasing up payment today, hadn't given the organiser enough credit, its actually the venue that are meant to pay and haven't done so. :mad:

    who was your contract actually with? have you at any time had dealings with the venue rather than the party people?

    your mission, if you choose to accept it, is to photograph as many national trust properties as possible ;)

    No

    I invoiced the party people as I was asked too.

    It will come through, I think i'm just going through the lines of beaucracy. I know the party organisers, have done for a long time.

    Some bunch of design agency chancers offered me a massive £10 per image to have my photos featured in a restaurant in Cardiff, offering that massively important 'photo credit.' As politely as I could, I declined.

    Hi
    (dont know if this is the right place to post this)

    Are you allowed to sell images you have taken of military planes at UK RAF (or USAF) bases?
    Assumptions:
    Images taken from outside the base, viewing areas dont say "No Photography"
    As far as i can tell, you should be able to sell prints, but I cant find any difinative info.

    Anyone have any solid info?
    Thanks
    Simon

    I can't think of any reason why you couldn't unless you're somehow endangering national security.

    People take pics of the Mach Loop all the time and this particular individual seems to be able to sell them so you should be fine*.
