    I have some photographs taken during motorsport events in the 1960's and
    70's by Foster and Skeffington of Hereford (I think). I would like to
    display them on a web site, but though it would be a good idea to get
    permission first (they are copyright material).

    Does anyone know if they are still in business? A web and directory
    enquiries search hasn't yielded much.

    If they are no longer in business, can I just give them credit for the
    pictures underneath them?

    I occasionally see website messages inviting copyright holders to contact
    the site owner. That would be the decent thing to do. After all, the
    pictures might be someone's pension. You might need to dig deeper if you
    want to sell copies.
    PS. This site was at the top of
    my Google.

  3. I have a coastal radio web site and have lot's of items from various
    people on it.

    I also have lot's of stuff on file that I wont use because I don't have
    the permission of the copyright holder.

    Speaking personally I never put stuff on my web site without the
    knowledge of the copyright holder, if I can't get that then I don't
    include it no matter how good it is...

    But I stress that's just what I do and my view on using other peoples work.

    Yeah, I found the 'gordonjarvis' page as well, and thought about contacting
    that site to see if they had a contact. The dates would suggest that it's
    not been updated for a few years, but it's probably worth a try.

    Hi Iain
    A bit of a long shot (no pun intended) but did you ever get the photo's of race and rally cars taken in the 1960's hosted on a web site? If not are they available by some other means?
    I look forward to hearing from you.

    Quite a bump on this post and a bit of a longshot. I have some photos of my late dad racing the 1973 Trident Rally which was taken by Foster and Skeffington. I would be great to see other pictures people have from these photographers.

    A few from me
