Mike does something he has never done before, something he never thought he would do. Clean the sensor in his camera! CAUTION: Mike didn't follow the direction and could have damaged his sensor. Read the directions and clean at your own risk!
We all know how important it to have a proper backup plan for your images. Yet, every month I hear of some photographer who has lost images and didn’t have them backed up. There really is no excuse any more to not having a proper backup plan. In this episode, Mike walks us through his process of backing up his data.

I wasn’t wearing the headband, but my hair had not grown back. Sixth show for Rachel Photography / attorney for photographers How much shooting do you get to do these days? Still have time to shoot. Gravitating toward Commercial / Studio work. For those that don’t know, Rachel runs “The Lawtog” website. What do you hope to achieve with this website? Site has exploded over the past couple of years…hired additional photographers. Site has plenty of free elements which provides resources for the photographer. All levels of photographers have use of the site. Working on finding lawyers across America to work with The Lawtog by local venues How are your documents given on your website? Documents are Word and can be saved and edited to fit the person that needs the contract. What do you see as the most common mistakes you see photographers make from a legal perspective? People give away copyright release Copyright / ownership of the image is setup at creation of the image. You can License / print release for the client to print. Mistakenly believe they don’t have copyright…you don’t have to register the photo but to collect damages you need to register the photo Digital signatures – App based contracts vs paper? ESIGN Act of 2000 allows for electronic signatures Interview Recoveries – How do you calculate Actual Damages? Case specific…sales versus advertizing Do you have an established rate for a track record Can I photograph and have to worry about obtaining a release? No…if you are in a public area you have the right to take the photograph and not need a release How do I register my images? How are the damages different with a registered image vs one that is not registered? When do I have to register the image?
