These are mainly landscape and some are quite 'arty' with lovely skies etc which I did as extra to the others and doesn't have excavation or finds etc to report on. What if I decided to publish them or do a talk...do I have to seek permission to use my own photos? When I look through my archaeology books the photos and illustrations are credited to the artist yet I appear to have disappeared already so the likely hood of my being credited this time is slim.:

you dont have the copyright because you were employed at the time the work was created but you may have what is known as a moral right whereby other people can not change your work without your permission. but you are unlikely to be able to get satisfaction unless the images go global and a suitably qualified lawyer swings into view
If they can get you asking the wrong questions, they don't have to worry about answers

Since you were work working 'self employed' and using your own camera equipment (what about film?) you almost certainly do have copyright of the images and you should be kicking up a fuss about their use without acknowledgement and/or renumeration. Try using them yourself commercially somewhere and see what they do. If this was one of those ?65 a day 'self employed' non-contract situations then you owe it to everyone to f**k them over as much as they have tried it with you. It could be a lesson to all companies trying the whole 'self employed but not really but it saves on PAYE/NI/pension costs'.

You obviously have more understanding journal editors than I ever get to deal with then! Not helped by specialists who all also seem to expect a long list of acknowledgements chucked in too Sad

- but don't misunderstand me, I'm solidly in your camp :face-approve:

My previous complaint on this thread was the far more heinous crime of my photographic work (the give-away being the presence of my own personal photo scales in important detail shots since the one's they'd issued us with were c**p) being attributed in print to another person, a 'regular' at that unit who to my knowledge never even set foot on the site in question and I don't recall working there - I was doing the timesheets! Have also noticed a couple of reports that I'd pretty much completed before I left that unit don't seem to have seen daylight with my name still attached Sad!
