Monkey wrench time (may have been discussed, but I just now paid
attention - apologies).

Before anyone uses any photos of anyone in a location other than a
PUBLIC one - that means the street, but not necessarily a restaurant,
and certainly not a business or residence - make certain a photo
release is signed by the photo's subject(s).

Many employers ask for a blanket release at time of hiring, but many
don't. When I did/do photos for company promotional use, I make
certain to get a release FOR ME. I am casual about end-of-year party
photos for the company newsletter, but you can bet I make certain
there are no 'compromising' photos placed on the scanner.

Final note: laws vary by state, country. What is OK here may not be OK
in all locations where the publication (paper, electronic) is
distributed. (Pass the headache remedy.)
