Seeing the Big Picture – Photography | Arts Law workshop
Taking photographs means creating copyright. In this free workshop, Arts Law will take the confusion out of the many legal issues around creating, licensing, exhibiting and selling your photography and photo-based art. The workshop will cover copyright, moral rights, contracts and give you some tips on negotiating better deals with agents and galleries as well as some tips for understanding competition terms and conditions.
