I of course mean the owners.  Let's say you are photographing a cat, or horse you see out on the street.  If you want to sell those photos can you with out worry of the animals owner?

In Europe, one does not have to…
  1. if the shot is taken in the open
  2. if the photo was taken at an event by accredited shooter.

Light is free… capturing it is not!

Not in the U.S., animals are considered property, so you will need a photo release form.  At least for commercial work.

Hmmm, news to me.  I would have guessed that you didn't need one.   So if you are driving along in the country side and see Mr Ed, you need to track down owner before taking a photo?

LOL Mr Ed. 


But you are correct.  Release here in the states is required.

Property in USA is all this way, real estate, cars, animals and of course anything else owned by someone else.
