Strict Policy on Movie Photos

Post by Pel »

There are many places and people taking photos of Twilight Saga actors, locations, and events. We are sent photos every day and have to decide what to run. Here is a general list of what we look for and what we turn away, just to save you time before you decide to send a link to anything online or any of your own personal photos.

1. We will only run photos that are the property of the person offering them, or are photos the PR department of a given actor has given for Internet distribution to media outlets. If the owner of a photo believes we are in violation and have taken their intellectual property without permission, please immediately email and the items will be removed.

2. Photos must have been obtained legally: no trespassing on private property, no harassing an actor if they are not at a public event, or willing to pose during a filming break, no false representation of who you are to get the photo. We respect actor privacy 100%.

3. We only run sure things. We don't run "maybe this is the meadow."

4. We will not run photos that display contact info such as license plates, cell phone numbers, email addresses, etc. if that info can't be blurred out.

5. I don't care how good your telephoto lens is. We will not run photos involving the personal lives of actors such as homes, children, spouses, private vacation moments, cars, etc.

6. Actors have private lives, if they went out to dinner someplace we won't be posting about it. If however they are taking a class in combat because it's related to their role in the movie we will, pending verification from their management. Any personal information regarding an actor is verified with their representation. If their reps state this is an area of personal privacy, we will not post the story.

So, if you happen to be dining in LA or NYC, see Kristen at a restaurant, and politely ask for a photo and she obliges, we'll be happy to publish.

If you follow Kristen to her apartment, chase her up the driveway while snapping away, and then try to give us pictures of that location, not only will we not publish it, but I will personally turn your information over to the police.
