Hi guys - I need a piece of advice regarding a photo I took.
I was on a report for the newspaper here in France about collecting wool, whilst the journo was busy interviewing I went off to look for an 'Image du Jour' and found one.
It was a young boy with his puppy relaxing on some wool sacks and I just caught it right with the puppy licking his face with the inevitable facial expression that goes with that.
I asked permission for the photo to go in the newspaper the next day and showed her the image which she did, which is a legal requirement here in France.
Now here is the problem. I can not remember where the heck the farm was so I can not go to ask her if I can use it on my website as an example of my portrait work.
Do I absolutely 'own' the photo as she had given her permission for me to publish in the newspaper and am free to use on my website?
I'm not worried about the rights of the newspaper as they would be cool about me using it anyway.
Many thanks in advance.
