Ownership - Do I need permission to make copies of a photograph I own?

If you own the negative, transparency or print in which the image is embodied, you do not necessarily have the right to reproduce the image.

However, if you own copyright in the photograph, you are generally allowed to reproduce the image. If a client has commissioned you to take photos for private and domestic purposes and you own copyright in the photos, you can not publish, show in public or broadcast the photo without the client’s permission.
