The marriage of digital photography to the Internet has brought about vast opportunities for the commercial licensing of photos. Publishers, advertisers, manufacturers, etc., that used to buy photos from a few stock photo companies can now choose from thousands of start-ups selling only through the Internet. But just as their own works are legally protected, photographers must respect the legal rights of the people who appear in their photos. Heller offers solid advice on when a model release is required. Is one needed for someone photographed in public? If the person is unrecognizable? For photos of buildings? Heller has been a freelance photographer and photo industry analyst for over ten years, and his book is indispensable for anyone wishing to enter the field. Recommended for large collections; for a general guide to the photo business, see Jim Zuckerman's Shooting & Selling Your Photos: The Complete Guide to Making Money with Your Photography.
