    I think this is the right section for this.

    Does anyone know of a paparazzi like website/org that might be interested in buying 'pics' of a celeb?

    I guess what I'm asking is if I could make any money off some 'interesting' celeb pics (I took them).

    Also, what kinda trouble could this get me into, if any.

    Thanks.

    '...As you've already taken the photos, some of the information on the link below might not be relevant, however, there are a few legal tips included in the article.

    I have to admit I don't know the answer to this one, other than common-sense.

    If you are taking celebrity photos and keeping your distance, I see no legal problems. If you are sticking your camera in someone's face, personally I believe you deserve what you might get as it is a type of assault, even if you don't actually touch the person.

    This has to be tempered with the fact that celebrities 'sign up' for this kind of attention when they choose this type of career. It comes with the territory and, although they might make a big fuss about not having any privacy, just leave them alone for 5-minutes and they'll soon be bleating for attention or create a scene to get themselves back on the front pages again.

    Assault aside, there is a moral issue. If I took naked photos of a celebrity, or photos of a private, maybe sexual moment, do I really want to prostitute my integrity by cashing in on them? That depends on you as the photographer and not on how much money you can get for them. There are simply too many things I would NOT do, even for a million bucks...but that's me!

    Yeah Dan is right with those suggestions. Obviously it depends on how good your pictures are and how much people want to see them.

    I know someone who works with TMZ, he is a pretty major player with celeb sex tapes etc. He would be a direct line to the $$$. PM me if you want to work something out.
