G'Day from Downunder,
Our view ....
Probably inapprpriate of them to ask to take the photos. ?? I wouldn't have asked, nor
taken photos without their permision. Would be different story if you were exhibiting at a
balloon convention though.
Do not feel terrible for saying no. Your work, your property. If they can not appreciate
that, it's their problem.

Had you said yes, no harm may have been done. However, your work may have appeared in a
portfolio without your knowledge. ???
At the end of the day, IT'S BUSINESS! You have every right to decide by whom, when, where,
how and why your work is exhibited.
