I would like to know as a photographer, how do you deal with models or clients that edit your images with Photoshop or other programs? It is very upsetting when it is your work and they can change it to something else that I wouldn’t claim it at all!!

I would like your feedback on this or maybe how you have handled this in the pass.

I let them know that I dont want changes made to my images and I also put it in the release form. I only had it happen one time after I started. I also tell them that if they would rather have the image in b&W or something else done to let me know and I be may willing to make some changes myself. nothing to crazy different from what I first intended. explain why you dont want them to change your work and I have found most clients will agree.

It happens. All you can do is educate your customers about copyrights, make it clear that derivitive use is not approved and if a particular case really bothers you, get a lawyer. Educating your customers will go a long way though.

I like the on the release form idea I’ll have to change mine because I always have them read it before they sign it anyway.
There are so many things to do before a shoot that something’s always get forgotten! I think the best way is to educate the model or client that as soon as the photograph is taken it is copyrighted and any changes have to be made from the author! Maybe have to put a sign above the studio door!

Thanks for your input! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

Well you use the terms model and client together which suggests you are being paid by the client to take photographs. If this is the case, then most clients will be buying your photographic work with the understanding that they can modify it as needed for their use. If you want to avoid this, then you must so state in the release/contract you have with your customer. They may not agree to these limits however, and you must be prepared to decide whether you want to lose business over the situation.

Cheers,
