Do I have the right to post pictures I took of a group of children on my website?
I am a photographer, I recently got a job taking pictures of a group of children at a martial arts club. Do I have the right to post the photos on a page on my website so the parents of the children can view them online?

If you ask the parents first, yes.

Yes, you can do it without any issue.

If the children are recognizable, not without the parent's permission. Believe me, it's not worth the potential legal hassle if you don't have a model release. The parent's are totally within their rights to sue the holy heck out of you for exposing their children to predators via the web. Even if you take it down... More

Not without the parents' permission.

If I were one of the parents I'd be saying a big NO!

It`s only good manners to ask the parents if they mind, first.

You have to have parental consent first in writing.

i would ask there parents 1st cuz when i got school taken the lady ask my mom if she post on her website and she said yes.

Yes if the parents are the ones who want to view them i would guess you should just pass out like a letter saying what you will be doing and make like a login page to see them or something it should work out just fine

You haven't listed what country or region you are in, so we can't say definitively, but in my experience of working with children professionally for many many years - that no you cannot post pictures of the children without prior consent from their parents. Its best to get this in writing, so there is not confusion... More

Congratiulations. I am associated in a scout group, and a letter had to be sent to every parent of every child in the group for permission for thier photo to be used on the website. This might not be the case for you, but you might want to double check first, good luck (; oxoxo

you NEED to ask the parent's first. Not only could you get sued but a child could be hiding from an abusive parent or something along those lines. Ask first:)

Just ask... just to play it safe :)
Answered By: Sarah - 2/2/2010
In any case I wouldn't publish their last names or any personal info about individual pics. Good luck.

No you do not. Your safest method is to provide a private code for access to photos.
Answered By: Perki88 - 2/2/2010
Make it so they have to have a password to get to the pictures so that only the parents have access and then give a slip of paper to the parents at the karate club.
Answered By: M - 2/2/2010
Yeah absolutely you have all the rights of posting pictures on your website.
Answered By: Shaun - 2/3/2010
You have the right to post your own pictures since you are the owner of that picture. But you have to ask for consent from the parent's children. You may also put some disclaimer below the pictures when you build website page for that pics.
