Default Would it be acceptable for a photographer to..

Looking for opinions from boutique owners/sellers.

Would it be acceptable, in your opinion, for a photographer to sell your items after shooting them?
If it was just a simple product photo?
If it was modeled by their own model/child?
If they have a category for 'resell items' but it's not in there; instead listed with their other items?

How about this one.. What if you noticed they sold more than one but you only sent the single? Would you approach and ask for the item to be removed from the store?

Okay, so I have more would it be acceptable, in your opinion to use photos with your products to market their own shop? Lets say for example that the photographer has opened a tutu shop and has a photo of their model in your band and their tutu. They use it as the store's logo, on the opening page, in reserved listings. Acceptable?
I'm venturing a guess that this is okay with most boutique owners because many of us team up for shoots.


With many of my items I don't mind the photos listed on another site WITH logo and WITH my branding attached. But not sure how I feel about this. There was no discussion and I had emailed her a few months ago but she doesn't respond anymore.

Would also love to hear opinions about resale and ideas about how to get the best deal on both ends.. both sending items and for those who have them to list.. if you have any
happy holidays, btw.

For me - once I send an item to a photog or model and they return photos to me it is there item to do what they want with it. We both held up our end of the deal. Their "payment" is the item received for them to do whatever with it. As long as they aren't claiming they made it or selling it for more than what I sell the same item for

That's basically how I felt. No big deal. But now there is one with many sales and another i noticed tonight who sold more than one of my single sends
I think maybe would have been okay with it had she not claimed it as her own/remade it and used the picture. Like it's okay to resell.. but not okay to re-sell/sell/sell LOL

Once I get my photos back what they do with it is their business. It's like if someone purchases a item from my shop, once I have the money what they do with it is there business.

Trust me, it hurts though and I can see why anyone would be upset. I had a photographer sell my items on facebook. But it is what it is.

It's kind of a tough call...I get why you would be upset about them selling multiples with the picture that they took of your product but technically isn't the picture still their property? I'm assuming that they still have the copyright to the picture? I may be wrong....I'm still trying to figure out how all the model stuff works.

I do think it's kind of tacky for them to do that though.

I've seen a few photographers running the 12 days of Christmas special and giving away props. To me that's fine and even selling just the ONE you sent them. But if you sent one item and they sell 10 of them IMO that's the same as picture stealing b/c they are using a photo of your product to sell something that you isn't the same item and may be sub par.

If a photographer wants to take the items you gave them, photograph them, then sell those photos to someone else, there's nothing stopping them unless you have a contract preventing it. Then anyone else selling similar products who buys the images has the right to use them.

You really have to spell it out word for word in a contract.

Tacky-really, really tacky.

As the photographer she retains the copyright and can do whatever she wants with the photos. But imo it's wrong.

That's what I'm thinking. I think it's a little dishonest because she tells her customers she made the one in the photo.
I'm sure she knows. That's why she disappeared after all the discussion we had about resale, wholesale, etc. She could have at least faked it like others do and signed on for an account with me LOL

what does that mean when we go with an agency then? We're still not protected? Do you still send out forms and contracts prior to shipping the items if you request a booking?
