A friend of mine, a recently-retired small businessman, and an amateur photography for years, has polished his skills to where he (and I) are confident he can make money from his still photography.

We seek suggestions from our learned colleagues as to what you think are excellent book(s) on the important legal aspects of photography.

The main things would be an explanation of copyright and of model releases and property releases.

No particular need for info on contracts or taxes or general business stuff; he's very familiar with all that. And anyhow, they're covered in a million general books on entrepreneurship and small business.

I'll watch for your recommendations, and feel free to send me suggestions directly.

There are quite a number of fairly good books on the subject. On Amazon, just enter this search phrase "legal photography" and you'll get a list. The first half dozen will have several of interest. The first is pretty good, and there's one a few down with forms, and a CD that I found good.
Cheers,
rfs

"The law in plain english for photographers" by Leonard D. Duboff. The first half of the book is more photography specific with info about copyright, libel, privacy and such. The second half, while useful, is more general about contracts, leases, and insurance.
