Chris, Thanks for your comment. This is my latest submission to Google Earth, and was shot on a nearly perfect day in January. I don't know if you could tell, but you can see Mt. St. Helens at the far left, Mt. Adams , and Mt. Hood all in the shot.

Excellent work as always.. I love your panos.

I see that you have a coffee table style book coming out with Travel Salem this year. I read part of the article in the Statesman journal but It was torn toward the bottom. Was there a release date planned? I would love to know..


Michael Hatten on March 18, 2009


If you don't mind may I ask you a question about photographing people?

I heard that there is a release form of some kind that is needed when you shoot people for commercial use. Is this true? If so how do I locate this form and when is it truly needed?

Thanks for the info..

Hi Michael, There is no release date as yet. Funding for the book is still up in the air and I've been kept pretty much in the dark about it. Ron

Ron Cooper on March 18, 2009

Hi Michael, Any time you shoot an identifiable person for a shot that may be used commercially, especially in an advertisement, you must have a signed release. I'm not an expert and most of my photos with people in them, are used in news publications and don't require a signed release. In these litigious times, it's probably best to get a signed release on any photo with an identifiable person in it for your own protection and for the protection of the end user. I'm certain you can find photo release forms on the internet. Ron Ron

Thats too bad about the book. Hopefully they will put a blurb in the Statesman about it being released and thanks about the info on the release form. I think I found a form on istock photos..
