It will depend on exactly what your arrangement was. Without a written agreement, you would not be entitled to commercialize his photos and he may very well have claims against you for this copyright infringement.

If you would like to discuss further over a free phone consult, feel free to contact me anytime that is convenient.

Kind regards,
