just wondering when you do a shoot for a models portfolio,
do you put you water mark on it, or no?

I put my copyright notice on mine, but it's fairly small and in the lower corner. I don't think the model would appreciate having it plastered across the middle of the image.

I found that some of the models I've shot with forget to reference the photographer that took the photos so some kind of advertising on the photo will help. I made a brush in Photoshop that I can make any color or size. Then change the opacity by having it on it's own layer.

Well, if the model is an agency model or hopes to be one, your watermark is not going to be appreciated or acceptable by the agency.

That's another story but their on-line portfolios a watermark wouldn't hurt.

Absolutely right, in my earlier post I was referring to web size images for online use. Any prints I supply for a printed portfolio are not watermarked.

The watermark for prints goes on the back of the print.
