this is not my idea, but a similiar example i think i can pose to get a well rounded answer for my question.
FIRST QUESTION: If i wanted to extract pictures off the internet or out of magazines of horse jockeys and put them on t shirts, would i be able to sell them with out enfringing on any kind of copyright laws. Such as, do i need to contact or get permission from the photographer, website, or jockey to use the pictures?  
SECOND QUESTION: If I can't get permission without paying a high price ruining every chance of profit, am i allowed to take pictures of the jockey's myself and put them on t-shirts to sell?
I'd really appreciate a concise answer on this subject if at all possible. thank you for your time.

Question one.  What you propose would be copyright infringement.
The copyright is held by the photographer or whoever the
photographer works for or assigned the copyright to and not the
person in the photograph.
That brings us to question 2.
If you take your own picture, you do avoid the copyright issue,
but the person may have rights to publicize his name and likeness
and to deal with that (in either of the two situations) you
have to get permission from the person in the photograph or
whoever he has contracted out the rights to.
