Business / Philosophy of Photography Taking pics is one thing, but understanding why we take them, what they mean, what they are best used for, how they effect our reality -- all of these and more are important issues of the Philosophy of Photography. One of the best authors on the subject is Susan Sontag in her book "On Photography."

Woman discovers that her face photos have been used in advertising all over the world

There are two things that strike me about this story. 1-read the model release if you allow a professional photographer to take your photos, even if you hired them.

2-people will stoop to anything to make a buck. While what this photographer did may be standard practice, it still stinks to high heaven. Personal ethics mean nothing to these weasels. I don't care what was signed or where, there are honest ways to make a living and there are devious ways, and a legally propped up scoundrel is still a scoundrel.
