Hi guys,


I have 2 questions regarding the photo. There a restaurant in the pic. Do I need property release for it? In case not, do you think people are recognisable?


Here is the link.


Thanks a lot!

Hey, I know those guys - yes their faces are recognizable (nice shot, good focus) and that isn't always the criteria, if people could say ....Hey that's me, I was there when that guy took my picture, or they can recognize themselves in a specific situation with maybe specific clothing etc, you need a MR.


Best not to mess, get the MR or shoot something else or go editorial, you will not slip one by these guys

The people are most definitely recognizable - remember that the "test" is whether someone can recognize themselves. In this image there is no question many people would easily be able to recognize themselves.


I'd just be guessing about a property release for the restaurant - but it looks somewhat unique. Which might suggest yes. How about editorial for this shot?
