Photographer’s Rights, Copyrights, Ethics, & Etiquette

The Mississauga Camera Club has invited KSCCC members to attend their next workshop: Photographer’s Rights, Copy Rights, Ethics & Etiquette

We all love photography but sometimes we wonder:

  • Can I take that photo?
  • Is it legal to take that image?
  • Am I breaking any laws?
  • Will I get into trouble?
  • Is it morally or ethically right to take this image?
  • Do I need a model release?
  • What should I have in a model release?
  • What rights do I have as a photographer?
  • How is my work protected?

These and many more questions will be answered in the 1.5 hour presentation and open to questions afterwards.

About the instructor: Peter Gatt

I always wanted to have a career were I could be in nature all day. I first got a taste of Photography in High School. I enjoyed it so much; that I decided to go to Humber College to pursue it as a career. After working in the photographic retail field for many years, I have found many people asking me questions about photography and if I could help them with photography and help them improve their skills as well.

In 2000, I was asked to create and teach classes at the Henry’s School of Imaging. In 2006, I decide to start my own school,  the School of Photography.  

Time: 9:00 am until 11:00 am

Date: October 23rd

Kanata’s Beaver Pond II

Phil Tughan was inspired by Javier’s recommendation to shoot at Kanata’s Beaver Pond and reports:

To add to the info on the Beaver Pond, go to the pond by going to the end of Walden Drive at the east end of the pond. The parking lot is completely closed, but you can easily park on the road. The best photography is along the paved walkway along the south side and at the east end of the pond. The western half is marsh and not accessible.

I have attached some Blue Heron photos that I took early in the morning after Javier’s great presentation. These were taken at the east end of the pond at the water’s edge. 

Thanks for sharing Phil

Kanata’s Beaver Pond

In Javier’s excellent presentation last week he featured Kanata’s Beaver Pond.

In case club members don’t know, it’s located here. We’re not sure about the status of the parking lot at the east end.

This map details some of the walking trails in the area.

The images at the top of this post were submitted by club members for our November 2013 monthly asignment. To see more, go here.
