TFP & Paid Model Release?
 
I've never needed my own site but now I do. Does anybody have a time tested model release that works for both TFP/CD or paid model shoots? Maybe one that can be used for both self promotion or publication depending on what blanks you fill in. I've searched the forum threads and read a LOT of posts dealing with releases but can't seem to find one (ideally one I can plagiarize).:rolleyes:

Thanks Ron. Sounds pretty thorough.

Re: TFP & Paid Model Release?
 
I got a question for you. When doing TFP shoots do you ever allow specific usage limitations to be added to a release? For instance if the girl wants to do the shoot but also wants to make sure she is displayed in a good light or maybe unidentifiable in a fine art type shoot (in a website portfolio that can be seen by anybody)? As it reads now your release says the model has no voice in selection.

Hey Atlanta,

I don't add that type of language, but it shouldn't be necessary if explained properly. As the creator of the image, you have as much, if not more, to lose than she does.

Instead, explain to her that there will likely be images that she likes that you will not release because they are not up to your standards. My comment is that I don't want an image seen by anyone other than photographer or model are thoroughly excited about it. Bring in a paying client and their response is the only one that really matters, but then the two of you are being compensated.
