I recently came across a dead sheep in a field - it had been savaged and killed by wolves - an increasing problem round here. Fairly generic dead sheep, green field, no buildings, nothing special. And FT wanted a property release!!!
yes, you would need a property release. Not for the sheep, but for the property the sheep was on. That has pretty much always been required. Most times the agencies are sticklers about that...sometimes, in the past, stuff got through with no property release required. I imagine as time goes on, they will want to cover their a$$ more and more.

That's different.  A property release is really for creative content, but agencies use them to prove you had permission to be on a property.  And a random field isn't going to incur the wrath of anyone, so that's kind of silly.

Of course it's different, and yes, having to prove you had permission to be on a property is why agencies have always asked for them. It has always been silly, especially for the conditions the poster described. I wonder why he/she, and anyone really, is so amazed by them asking for that when it has always been true.

Odd.  I have never been asked for a property release from any agency for any shoot.  Ever.  I have shot in my chiropractor's office, at my church, both inside and out, in two different schools, on a farm, and in various other locations and never had to produce a release (although I could have provided them).  Much less for some dead sheep in a random field.

IMO - the most likely reason for needing a property release for livestock would relate to identifiable coded tags or  branding (including paint or dyes).

Will you please upload a copy of this image to the thread?  It is all speculation at this point.

Thanks,

Right.  I think it's odd that they picked a field to ask for a "permission release".  For specific interiors, like a grocery store, I would be prepared.

Odd. When i first started uploading, some agencies did not ask for property releases at all. Since then, i have seen the whole "amazement at needing a property release for this" topic discussed here before. I think we all know that different agencies ask for different ridiculous things at different times.   :)

I think these random silly rejections and demands for releases for pictures that obviously don't need them are more likely the result of newer, confused reviewers than company policy changes.
