Hi...my first post to P. O. T. N.
When I was at a leatherworks convention(leather working tools, sewing machines and so on) this weekend, I stopped by one display with some very well made and beautiful solid silver belt buckles and other items for sale.
I asked the vendor if he minded if I took a few shots of his work, and was granted permission after much discussion about not publishing the photos online. His concern was cheap overseas reproductions devauling his artwork.
I have ran across this before, but if I have a shot that I want to share with the world, what are my photographers ethics?

Non of the other vendors raised objections.....and if I will try to submit some event photos later on.

Are you asking how to photograph the work? If so, then go with a macro lens and diffused flash.

If not, then why bother photographing the stuff if you can't display it.

Guess I didn't phrase things right....
I wasn't inquiring about equipment or techniques....just what pro photographers do when asked if their photographs are published online.

Is this a trick question...?
You agreed not to put them on the net then you dont put them on the net.
You dont keep your word put them on the net then your a low down skunk and karma will bite you in the butt.

I've had much the same type of discussion. The guy thought I was going to copy his work. Even when I told him it was purely for artistic reasons he wasn't happy. He just wasn't worth the trouble and I just walked away - he was that forceful about this point of view that he scared some of his potential customers away also. These type of people have usually been burned in some way before.

You could have just bought some jewelery and shot all you wanted. Anyone can copy his work, all they need to do is buy an item and examine it at home.
