Privacy rights protect living people from unauthorized use of their image that is intrusive or embarrassing. “Photographs of private persons, who are not celebrities or public figures, can be published without their consent only in an editorial context”.

These types of images are devoid of Model Releases, please be aware of this as incorrect usage of any images sold by Nomadicimagery and resulting actions by any party involved is solely the responsibility of the buyer/purchaser of the image which they have used in a way that violates licensing and model release laws.

Any image/photograph with particularly famous or well known and recognizable public, state or national buildings or properties shall adhere to the above statements as none of these image types sold through Nomadicimagery have Property Releases hence usage is restricted to editorial purposes along with any image containing logo’s or trademarks.
