Edit : 26th July 2018:
I own a website which aims to give details about various photo sets which are posted on sites like DeviantArt, Flickr, Twitter, etc.
I gather the details of the sets by conducting a short interview with the original uploader of the set, which is sometimes the model, and sometimes the photographer.
I'm UK Based, but can potentially interview people globally!
So far, I have been fortunate enough to interview both the models and the photgraphers, so when I publish the interview along with several images, both people who are involved are able to give authorisation.
However, this is time consuming, and as there is often a language barrier, I don't always hear back from the second person.
As I'm speaking to the uploader of the content first, it would be my assumption that getting their permission to use the images would be sufficient, but as I said, this is just an assumption.
Does anyone know the correct way to go about this? If the uploader of the set is a model, does that mean they have the authority to grant permission for me to use them ( for reference purposes ), or do I still need to get the photographers permission. And Vice Versa.
