    I want to put a photo on of the train driver of the swanage railway.The photo is in black and white and he is the main subject of the photo,could he or a member of his family if they see the shot object to this? Thanks for any help,Dane.

    Did you take it in a public place? My understanding is that if you took in a public place and it does not show the subject in a bad light (I mean in a damaging, defamatory way... not dodgy lighting!), then there are very few grounds for complaint (although if you wanted to sell the photo, you would probably need a 'release').

    it is impossible to deframe anyone in a photo as you are only capturing what they were doing, i suppose if you captioned it to say they were doing something else other than what they were, say said a MP was having a bit with a goat when in fact he was only washing it then that would be liable.
    But in the UK have no right to privacy in a public place and you have no right to claim defamation if you are photographed doing something you should not have been doing !
    And no you dont need a "release "to sell it as you have no contract with the subject, it's just a street picture in which he happened to appear.
    Snap away

    In short no, unless you have made him look a complete spanner.

    They'd only worry if they were found out to had claimed it on expenses
