Ethics in Business


I received a phone call from the mother of some foster children I took photos of requesting copies. Apparently the foster family gave her a couple of photos and she would like more. Do I need to contact the foster family (who paid for the sitting) and ask their permission to sell the mother photos? What is proper here?

  ??? I don't understand. If the foster family gave the mother some of the pictures, why would they care (or you be worried) if she bought additional copies from you?

  Assuming these kids are under 18, see who has legal guardianship and get permission from them, Tara. It's actually a privacy issue, and you're certainly right to ask.
Take it light ;>)
