IMPORTANT!!! Notice about model releases:
I know that this is a touchy subject and is hardly ever discussed or petitioned by most models, however my rights as the co-artist of the photographer are very important to me. I do not feel comfortable giving "unrestricted permission" of freeing the photographer from any "responsibility" or "liability" when it comes to using my images. I know that these are common terms and conditions in model releases, which have been blindly used and accepted by many models for years at a time, but if you attempt to solicit this type of agreement from me you will be declined. I think that photographic production is about collaboration, and as such both sides have the responsibility to protect each other's public image. It is unacceptable that one side ask for permission from the other side to act irresponsibly with products that reflect the other side's business and reputation. Everything should be 50-50, not just prospective monetary profits from the pictures. I have created my own form for a model release, one which is mutually just and in the best interest of both sides. If you are interested in shooting with me, it is the first thing you should ask to preview. This will save both of us lost of time and trouble later on and prevent any uncomfortable situations. This is especially important for all one-on-one shoots (ie. my freelance work with individual photographers - paid or not), but even more so for TFP.
** I do not require this for jobs or print work I get through my agency or other services, simply because that goes through a secondary source and my image is protected, however any work I do directly with you is at my own liability; I need you to be willing to act responsibility, black on white. **
Thank you everyone, for reading and understanding this.
I realize I come across as very pretentious, however this is business and I'm just trying to protect my rights and interests. (I hope that only makes me demanding... O.O)
Thank you once again and my best wishes to everyone.
