You can take the photo. You can print the photo. You can put the photo in 
the newspapers.  You cannot use the photo for advertising purposes.

I can't take a photo of you drinking a Fosters beer, in private or public, 
and sell it to Fosters to be used in their promotional material without 
your consent.
