Jay Miller on Copyright: 2018

Did you miss Jay’s presentation? He shared his experience with photo ownership  and answered questions about the need to register your photos. Jay’s recommended guides are “The Photographer’s Legal Guide” by attorney and professional photographer Carolyn Wright, and “The Copyright Zone: a Legal Guide for Photographers and Artists in the Digital Age,”  by attorney Edward Greenberg and Jack Reznicki.

  • 7 p.m., Thursday, Nov. 1, 2018
  • UNT Health Science Center, Research and Education Building, Room 100; find directions

Jay Miller, a professional aviation photographer, will give a short presentation on photo copyright based on a recent experience he had with a major client.

The importance of copyright remains one of the big elephants in the room for most professional – and even non-professional – photographers. Ninety-five percent do not register their photographs and do not fully understand the importance of doing so. For Jay, it was a lesson learned – but one with a happy ending.

jay-miller-1x1Jay received the International Society for Aviation Photography (ISAP) George Hall Lifetime Achievement Award in 2018. The award recognizes outstanding individuals whose initiative and dedication to aviation photography has improved the profession and positively influenced others. He co-founded ISAP in 2000 and led the organization until 2013.

Jay also is the club’s November competition judge.
