Hi all,

I come across some airport photos in istock, there are many interiors of many international airport, even in the descriptions.

does it needs a property release?

but somehow since most of it had been post processed with different color tone..like almost black and white, is it why it will be approved?

I think it depends on the airport.

Airports are open for the taking and dont need to be submitted as Editorial!

Just dont shoot those TSA agents that's when it could get iffy.

Here are some links for you.

it is quite interesting to know that, but it seems one need to make it doesn't look alike with post process?

In some cases, it's easier to get things into the main collection on iStock than it is in editorial. They have required 'permission' letters (not a PR) for some editorial submissions where the same location is in the main collection, presumably without PRs.

I've been asked for permission letters for airport pics, but not all of them. I don't know where the line is drawn.

depending on your country, airports would fall in the same photography-restricted areas as border-crossing; automobile checkpoints between cities on a toll-bridge;  museums ( Louvres, Bardo, even Madame Tussauds', ... some are forbidden, others allow you to buy a ticket to shoot for personal usa only),etc
when you travel by car (or plane in this case), and wish to take these photos for commercial ( or even editorial use)
one would be advised to ask for permission with office there. if not, you might if noticed by one of the guard(s) to be pulled in and asked to remove all you took (erasure on the spot, confiscation of your card or roll-film,etc) . again, as i said depending on where you are.
ie. if u r just taking a few snapshots like a tourist, it won't alarm security. but if u went about shooting (alot), security will inevitably pull u in to their office.

as for stock sites accepting or not, i think the previous comment by ShadySue has already addressed that .

Apparently you missed the links that I posted?

In the U.S.A. anyone can take pictures of dam near anything they want and that includes Airports, and they cannot detain you or confiscate your memory card or camera or erase anything they need a warrant just to even look at the info on the card, if they detain you or erase or take your card your civil liberties have been taken away and the so called security and airport can be sued for things like coercion, kidnapping and more.

Apparently you didn't read what was said, "depending on your country".
We don't all live in the USofA.

I think there's a difference between being allowed to take photo's inside an airport versus licensing them commercially (not editorially) without a property release.
