The only public park in the Village of Twin Oaks in Saint Louis, Missouri looks quite photogenic. However, the picture perfect park is off limits to any commercial photographer.
Portrait photographer Josephine Havlak has filed a lawsuit against the town. The photographer wanted to take a photo of clients on the bridge (shown in the image above from the town’s web site). But the town has an ordinance banning such activity in its 10.5 acre park.
So Havlak is taking the town to court, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported.
The long awaited arrival of Spring 2015 maybe today on the calendar. But Spring may need plowed as Lancaster County experiences more snow.
Lancaster County Amish travel in a horse-drawn buggy during a snow storm.
Luckily to snow today will not be covering the roads as it did earlier this year when I captured this image for my stock photography collection. Still, 2″ to 4″ inches of snow on the first day of spring is not a good thing.
According to The Knot, couples paid an average of $2,556 for their wedding photography in 2014. That’s nearly a 5% increase from the average cost the previous year of $2,440, the Web site PetaPixel reported. The complete report is here: http://petapixel.com/2015/03/13/the-average-cost-of-a-wedding-photographer-in-2014-was-2556/ – it includes the survey which shows what couples spent on a variety of wedding services.
This image set off a firestorm this week. Social media exploded when the image was posted. Some liked it, others said it disgraced the US Flag. A Facebook user said the photo was “disrespectful, rude, tacky, disgusting, and against the U.S. Flag Code.”
The photographer was interviewed on FoxNews.
