Notice Regarding Photography

It has been brought to my attention that there have been questions about photography, who owns the pictures, and what can be done with them. The SCA follows Federal Copyright law, which says that the photographer owns all rights to any photographs they take unless 1) the subject or a customer pays for the rights 2) there is an existing contract between the photographer and another party. This article has a great explanation:
If the question is regarding releases, the SCA in general and our group in particular has been relatively lax about getting those releases, from all photographers and subjects. To that end, any subject of a ‘portrait-style’ photograph may request that it be removed at any time. Also, any photographer can request, at any time, that their photos be removed from any and all sites, social media or otherwise.
I hope this clears up any questions and puts this situation to rest.
Thank you for your time and attention.
