"demander une photo à Pierre p/r aux droits"

Let me know if more context is needed.

Explanation:
I don't think this has anything to do with "profile".
I'm pretty sure that p/r means "par rapport" here, but am not so sure what the "droits" refer to.
Could it be that they might infringe copyright laws if "Pierre" himself does not supply the photo?

I think Tony's suggestion in the "Discussion" section is the way to go.

agree  Tony M: Yes, difficult to know just why there is a photo rights issue here, but that must be what it's about. As you say, if Pierre himself provides the photo, one may assume they won't have to pay any fees for it! We've had "p/r à..." before.

  -> Thanks, Tony. I think you may have hit the nail on the head regarding payment of fees.

agree  writeaway: fits the context and is even an accurate translation of the French. what more could anyone ask?

  -> Thanks for your support here and, more generally, your ongoing efforts to raise the bar on this forum.

neutral  mimi 254: p/r means "par rapport", fine but what does someone photo got to do with copyright?// Ok, i see! Thanks for explaining!

  -> Try using someone else's photo in a publication or on a web site without their consent and you'll find out!

agree  Nikki Scott-Despaigne: Yes, or "woth reference to" or, more simply still "about". No problems with "droits", (rights), the right to one's image being well protected in France.
