    Hi, I have been doing photography as an amateur for 3 years now and to get started i offered my best friend at the time free sessions and photos with his partner and son to build up my portfolio however because i was totally new to it i didnt have photo release forms etc,it was all verbal agreements,we have now parted company (no longer friends) and he is now wanting me to remove all pictures of him and his family from my portfolio and adverts etc,he has messaged me privately via facebook asking me to remove the photos but i havent replied yet,he has also commented on my business pages asking me to remove the pictures,where do i stand legally and morally ?, do i still hold the copyrights or because there is no paperwork giving permission for use in advertising etc do i have to remove the pictures ?

    thanks in advance
