Hi guys,


I can't seem to find the answer to something regarding the need for a property release, so wondering if anyone out there has experience... I recently shot some images of my new kitchen, and was wondering if I needed to supply a property release? I own the apartment and bought the kitchen (and even helped install it)... the kitchen is a 'brand' kitchen (designed and ordered through a particular kitchen company) but there is no logo, and of course I will remove any brand name off the appliances... It is more of an abstract perspective shot rather than a straight 'profile' view.


Has anyone here taken photos of their house interior and have them accepted on iStock?  What was your experience?


Thanks in advance...


 


Andrew.

My experience is mixed - 90% of the time they don't ask for a PR.

I've never had a problem with photos of my own properties (including kitchens).

I think there is some confusion over the term "property". My interpretation would be that it is your apartment and you have paid for the kitchen but that does not give you  the rights to the design of the kitchen cupboards etc that still belongs to the kitchen company. I would not include a property release, I would be surprised if you needed a PR for such a kitchen unless it was very high end and or distinctive/unique.

Agreed, if it'as just "normal" kitchen fittings.

Thanks for the feedback!


It is just a normal kitchen... being a photographer, I can't afford 'high end' :P  so do you state your ownership to the inspector in the details of the file?

I have done it in the context of 'someone baking or cooking' in a kitchen with no problem. You are trying to make it the main focus with no person?
