Copyright Query

This has probably been asked a few times I'm sure so if anyone can point me in the right direction or answer this directly it would be muchly appreciated!

The problem is this.......I recently hired a studio and as part of the each session it was agreed that i would supply my selection of the best pictures on CD to each of the models/participants with one condition that i can use any picture for promo, advertising, uploads to FB and to forums such as this, basically anything to promote me as a photographer (with the view to maybe turning this in to a part/full time career in the near future, possibly!!) Now one of the participants was my little boy and his mum, now she went to get some of them printed using ASDA's online photo service and after taking payment only to be told that they wouldn't print them for her as they were professional photo's taken in a studio and she didn't hold the copyright. Okay i was quite flattered that they considered them to be professional but was wondering what steps i would need to do to ensure this doesn't happen again? At the moment its just family and friends so everything is nice and amicable but to avoid further problems do i sign some kind of release form signing over copyright or keep the copyright myself and give permission to use/print??

Thanks
Stu

Re: Copyright Query

i usually embed on the digital file that "fill in name here" has reproduction rights to the said images as well as giving them a covering note authorising whoever to print them etc etc. havent had anyone come back and say that it didint work. I wonder what would have been said if you yourself had gone in. would they have taken your word for it that you were copyright owner?

Re: Copyright Query

Apart from printing myself, I have prints produced by ProAm some of which were studio portraits. I do own the copyright and the shoot was covered by a model release form but ProAm have never queried this.

Re: Copyright Query

TBH I'm quite surprised (and happy) that ASDA bothered to do this, I hope others take up the practice as well.

I'm sure a quick phone call to ASDA to ask what they need exactly to avoid this issue in the future would help.

Re: Copyright Query

I've taken many an image into my local asda...only because it's convenient and cheap for quick 10x8 prints....they did me one the other day in 20 minutes!! never have I been questioned about copyright.....tho it does come up on screen that any images taken by a professional photographer are their copyright and you are confirming that you have permission.
