Using church photos in a published book

Postby Ryan9336 » Sun Sep 08, 2019 6:53 pm

We have a friend from the Congo (now in the United States) who is writing a book, In this book he talks about his conversion and mission. The company he is working with requires approval from the owner to use these images. Who does he need to speak to have these images approved?
The pictures of the temple, are photos owned by the church.

The last post of this thread has the contact information for the Church's copyright office: viewtopic.php?f=14&t=30318&p=177790&hil ... ns#p177790

Of course, the email address domain "" has been superseded. I don't know off the top of my head what the new domain for that type of email is.

The correct email is on this page:, which lists the general permissions.

There is a button on the page to create a permission request for something not covered.

My parents served as missionaries in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (they just returned last week) and have taken several photos of the Kinshasa temple. If it would be helpful, feel free to send me a private message and I can get you in touch with them. I'm sure they'd be willing to share some of their photos. You might also find some good temple photos here: (there's contact info at the bottom of the page).
