This is my first pass at this page,
me if you can not find a answer here.
Q. What is a model
release and when are they used? Do you have to have written permission to
use someone's photograph?
A model release is a written consent form giving permission
for that person's image or likeness to be used on film and for other
purposes. If the person being photographed is under 18 years of age, the
release must be signed by a parent or legal guardian. Releases can be used
for any photograph taken. When releases are used, they are typically
required on both youth and adults, because you need to have permission of
everyone in the photograph for the use of their image or likeness.
Q. What type of
photos will I be posing for?
This depends on what type of modeling you are looking to do,
and should be discussed prior to the shoot, along with different Idea's for
poses and locations. General categories are portrait, people, glamour,
fashion, swimsuit, nude and boudoir. I am interested in building my
portfolio and currently can use images from all categories.
Q. What are the
terms for a Time for Print (TFP) shoot?
A. Time for Print shoots
are common to trade. That is I work part of the shoot to provide you with
the specific images you want or need, in turn for you working part of the
shoot to achieve specific images I need.
Q. What can I
expect to receive from the model session?
A. This is completely
negotiable, as I will strive to provide you with photos you can use. Three
8x10's, CD of the shoot and the model can order Reprints and
enlargements at a reduced fee.
Q. How long does a
model photo session take?
A. You can expect a
studio shoot to last about two hours. Outdoor shoots can take longer due to
travel time and how much we want to accomplish that day.
Q. Can I bring
someone with me to the shoot?
A. Absolutely. I
want you to feel as comfortable as possible during the shoot. I actually
encourage you to bring along a friend and your favorite music as well.
