Festool pictures
« on: May 21, 2012, 11:08 AM »
HI,

I am an old member and also I am a photographer.
I am planning to have a photo shoot with a model and my studio and I want to use my own tools as props.  Is there any problem showing the festool brand on this pictures?
The pictures will be posted in several sites.
If there is a problem, will it be enough to hide the brand on the pictures? like I said those tools are mine not borrowed.

Let me know

Thanks,

Fidel

You can't do that. Festool doesn't take kindly to free advertising.  [wink]

I suppose that depends on the worksite.  I'd guess they might be very welcome on some construction sites. [tongue]

AFAIK, when you see products labels "blurred" out on TV (logos on T-Shirts too), it's because the brand refused to pay for the product placement. Ie, the video makers didn't want to give them free advertising. I guess the thinking is that if they let one go when they refuse to pay, then others will follow. Obviously, some brands do chose to pay.

I think this is different from purposeful product placement as opposed to "accidental" (i.e., they just happened to film somebody using a tool with the label showing).

I'd just be sure not to show the tools being used any innappropriate [censored]  manner..... [scared]

Are these pictures going to be in good taste? I'd also point out that this isn't a 'blokes only' forum.
