Picapp Pictures of the Thai Royal Family

Here are some pictures from Picapp about the Thai Royal Family. There are some good old pictures here although none that I have not see before in Thailand. The Bureau of the Royal Household regularly publishes pictures. They seems to be little restriction on their reuse in Thailand as long as they are respectful.

The King is well know as an enthusiastic photographer. There is an exhibition of his work at Vimanmek Palace in Bangkok. He uses Canon equipment but Canon Thailand don’t make use of this in their marketing. There is no equivalent to the UK “Royal Warrant” in Thailand.

I don’t know how Getty can assert a 2008 copyright to these pictures. My guess is that it is not an intentional rights grab but a blanket edit of the images they licensed to Picapp.

    Dear Sir,

    The picture of the Royal family was great, if possible for you to set up new image start from the King was a child to young man would be great.

    Regrads,

      That’s a good idea.

      I focused on photos from Picapp of Her Majesty the Queen. I am sure there are more available.

      You can look at the pictures on Picapp yourself. They have many interesting photographs – some very old.

      Go to http://www.picapp.com/ and enter a search string, for example, “Thailand King”. I have found that the oldest and most interesting pictures are on the last pages.

      Thanks for the comment. I’m glad you liked the pictures.
