In MY opinion
In MY opinion, I believe designers should have laws to protect their rights for their garments once photographed by a photographer. For instance you do the shoot. Give me permission to use them for social media, portfolio, and submissions. I put them up on social media and you want me to take them down. I can't argue back because I have no rights. Or you use my pics for something that I may not want my brand affiliated with. Or I submit and get accepted but then I say I can't after being accepted and now I look like an unprofessional to them. How is it fair that the this can happen when this is the designers concept and brand. Where are the laws to protect the designers work? Designers are responsible for the location of the shoot, hair, makeup, accessories etc and the photographer has ownership rights and can basically abuse their authority when a contract is not in place. So I say this. Designers draft up a contract and get it approved by your attorneys. More people to add to my list. If this offends anyone, simply put, I don't care. This is MY opinion and nobody asked you to read this or comment.
