(Included in The Basics, The Essentials & The Ultimate Bundle Set)

Model Release

If you plan to use your images for advertising or portfolio purposes, a model release form is an essential way to protect your photography business. A model release is generally signed by the subject of a photograph. It gives you permission to license or use the image.

This form also releases any claims the client may have to future compensation for use of images. This protects you from legal action and eliminates the unknowns around publishing images.

These model release forms allow clients to easily and legally give permission for use of their photographic images (not audio or video).

General Release: general model release language
Limited Release: allows client to limit the use of their images by the photographer

(Included in The Basics, The Essentials & The Ultimate Bundle Set)

Print Release

The print release form is readily customizable to be included with digital file orders to outline the do’s and dont’s that the client can do with your art. This gives the client the permission to print only – does not give permissions for commercial or other uses. This does reemphasize the copyright laws. (Included in The Essentials & The Ultimate Bundle Set)

Permission to Sell to a Third-Party

This agreement allows the client to provide the photographer permission to sell photographs to private third-parties. It also defines usage, restrictions on purchasers, and specific images sold to third-parties. For example, if the subject’s partner is not included on the contract, they must obtain permission from the client.. (Included in The Essentials & The Ultimate Bundle Set)

Hair and Make-Up Artist Contract

Outlines responsibilities and duties between photographer and the hair and make-up artist to prevent issues in the working relationship. Includes provisions such as independent contractor, no partnership relationship, duration, supplies, confidentiality, liability, contractor state licensing (if required by law), liability insurance, prohibition of Artist selling makeup and other materials to client, cancellation, indemnification of liability, attorney’s fees, and legal miscellany.
