I submitted an editorial photo of a consumer product which was rejected for a property release because it was shot inside a grocery store. It was a close shot of the project and not any part of the store was included in the photo.   Does anyone have experience with this? Thanks.

No need for a property release, but you will need consent from the private property. When you upload your image, you are required to give the 5w's in your caption. Providing a full caption will most probable require you to state where the image was taken, thus requiring consent.

We can all come up with creative ways of captioning the image in a way where we don't have to mention the shop, but it will still make it an image taken on private property without consent.
