I'm starting to think that Subbing with Mr. Awesome could benefit from some photographs. Am I going to lose my job if I post photos of students on the Internet?

depends on if it would fall under the release form all public school students have to have parents sign, for media release.

Maybe, maybe not. And legal doesn't necessarily mean it's acceptable or that you ''can'' do it.

are the pictures pornographic? While there are plenty of sites that are specifically designed for just such a purpose, there are a lot more webspace providers/hosts that would consider it a violation of their rules.

has she consented? Even it is legal to post her photos without her knowledge, it's certainly not a considerate thing to do and maybe not be the wisest either.

are the photos copyright protected? If they were taken by a professional photographer, you can't legally post the photos without the photographers permission. However, if you took the pix yourself you own the copyright.
The safest things to do in ''all'' of these cases would be to get her permission (written would be ideal, just in case the two of you break up) and to read your host's TOS

And finally, this is more important than anything else...

Is she a minor? If she is, it would be safest not to post them at all. If she's a minor and the pictures are overtly sexual in nature or even just sexually suggestive...forget it. Child pornography is a very serious crime.

I would suggest you visit a website where you can ask for legal advice like or

If you are still uncertain about legality, err on the side of caution and don't do it.

Gee Lee,
What kind of nerds do you have reading this thing. A simple yes, just keep it above the waist would have been sufficient.

Wow. That's interesting how one of the "Anonymous'" automatically thought you were speaking of a girl when you gave absolutely no indication of the sex of the subject.
