UPDATE: PhotoBizLegal Workshop – Moves to September

UPDATE: Our preliminary research in preparation for the PhotoBizLegal workshop, originally scheduled for 20 July, revealed a strong interest in the legal implications of taking photographs in public areas as well as semi-public and private spaces. This is clearly an area of concern for many photographers who have been harassed by officials in various contexts. Web-Tech-Law is commissioning research on this with a view to presenting a report on the legalities of taking photographs in these contexts and we have decided to postpone the workshop to September 2013 so we can combine the legal workshop content with the report’s release to workshop attendees.

Web•Tech•Law and PhotoComment are tackling the legal aspects of photography at the historic Bensusan Photographic Museum.

As a photographer, you have many roles. You’re a creative professional and, at the same time, perhaps a small business owner. You’ve probably discovered that many aspects of your work are done within a broader legal and compliance context and, like many small business owners, you may not be up to speed on what is required of you or how your work is affected by the law.

The PhotoBizLegal workshop, presented by Web•Tech•Law in partnership with PhotoComment, is a perfect opportunity for you to gain more insight into copyright and licensing implications for your work; an introduction to contracts you should have in place (and a few creative tips on how to implement them effectively); some of the legislation that you should be conscious of and some of the opportunities and risks presented by the social web that you probably use to share your achievements. Paul Jacobson, Web•Tech•Law’s director, and Samantha Buchler, our Commercial Services senior manager, will present the workshop.

The venue is the historic Bensusan Photographic Museum situated inside Museum Africa, in Newtown, Johannesburg. More details at www.photocomment.net.

You may know me better as 'Admin', as I work more behind the scenes to keep PhotoComment running smoothly, so here is a short history of how I got here. I started working in a camera store right out of high school having never picked up a camera before. I spent a few years working there and then moved to wholesale and then made a big change and went into the cycling industry for a few years, however I could not stay away and made the move back into the photography industry and have been working with PhotoComment since March 2008. It has become a passion and a labor of love to bring the best photographic content to you.

    Hi there !

    I just want to confirm if this event is booked up yet , and if there are any plans to redo this workshop in the future, I have a massive interest as its my main business regarding shooting in public spaces and cannot make this event due to cash constraints at the moment.

  • mark straw

    Is the event fully booked up already?
