If you have professional photos that you want copied but the photographers business has closed down, is there a way to get them done the places like tru print etc won't touch them because of copyright laws?

It's family shots and copies are wanted for family members.

Any advice would be welcomed.

Re: Copyright

The first step is to try and find the photographer. If you find him ask him for the negs or digital files.
If you can then show you have tried to contact the photograph and if you have prints of the image is to get them professionally scanned. With a touch of correction you should be able to get copies that way.
If the photographer then shows up, you can prove that you have tried to make contact and also the company that you did business with does not exist.

Re: Copyright

Thanks Hoffy

Is there a way to find out a photographers name, i only know the company name as it was then (about 4/5 years ago)

Re: Copyright

If permissable on Pixalo it might be worth posting the name and town ( not address ) of the company.

They may have registered with company house, or possibly someone on Pixalo or one of the other photo sites may actually know them

Re: Copyright

Was it a photographer or a photographer working for a company.
Mail me the name of both and I will look.

Re: Copyright

Thanks for the offer, sorry for my delay.

I have managed to find out some details and the company was bought out, the company who then bought the company and the negatives has also ceased to exist.

My parents have decided to do something else now with other photos.

Thanks for the help though -appreciated
