Following the excellent talk by Cliff Hide on copyright and other legal matters affecting photographers, and the fact that the London Tattoo Convention is on this weekend, here’s a really interesting piece about a question I have never considered:
Who owns the copyright on a tattoo?

Shaun Hodge made it a superb start to the new season of external competitions by winning the Ron Wake Memorial Trophy with his print Going Gaga.
The final, which took place in a packed Harrow Camera Club, was judged by Gerald Kitiyakara, LRPS.
Shaun is currently travelling so the trophy was collected on his behalf by Amanda Wright.
The final event of a highly successful EHHPS Summer Season came to a fabulous and fitting conclusion with a BBQ in the sunshine superbly hosted by John Clare and Maxine, with the added bonus of the presentation of trophies to the winners of last season's monthly aggregate competitions.
The full list of winners was published here.
A huge thank you to John and Maxine and congratulations to all of the winners.
The 2018 competition is open for entries. Great shots for inspiration from last year's winners gallery!
Founded in 2014, BLPA recognises and showcases the work of established and emerging photographers, both professional and amateur of all ages, while also highlighting the relevance and importance of photography to raise awareness and inform.
The awards are a unique visual celebration of British life, in all its richness and diversity, creating an enduring visual record of the spirit and essence of our nation and its people at work, play and in the community.
Here's a list of competitions, exhibitions and similar with imminent deadlines. It comes from Lensculture so obviously they are plugging their own activities at the top.
Renowned British portrait photographer David Bailey joins RA Artistic Director Tim Marlow to discuss his creative process, how it has evolved over half a century, his experience of getting older and the art world today. Sunday Sept 9th as part of the RA 'Festival of Ideas'.
I guess most of us look at the finalists in some competitions we see online and sometimes wonder why they've been honoured. That is definitely not the case here. Viewbug's 'A World in Black and White' has produced some stunning images.
The RPS are running a portrait workshop with Brian Griffin, HonFRPS. Could be an inspiring - though expensive - weekend. Details here:
