Preamble: Everything below can be negotiated or changed over time 🙂
Want to work with me as a model?
Not all photographers or models have same goals or guidelines as how they work, what type of work they do and what they use or want to use the work for.
Just had a shoot more or less settled when it suddenly became clear that we had totally different ideas of how the images were to be used.
So I’d thought I’d like to make a rough outline on how I work with models and what terms they are.
For all shoots:
I prefer to work outside if weather permits it.
I will gladly send low rez edited photos to my models, but I’m to be credited and photos are not be be edited, cropped or changed in any way by the model.
I can supply alternative versions if the model should require it.
I will not give raw files to anyone.
I use a contract, it can be supplied in advance should anyone want to check it.
I can host a traveling model.
TFP (time for print)
How the photos are to be used and what sort of photos we take are agreed upon in advance.
We can both use the photos from the shoot that have been edited.
I’m to be credited and photos are not be be edited, cropped or changed in any way by the model. I can supply alternative versions if the model should require it.
Paid (I pay the model)
My main purpose to shoot with a model is to use the photos. Currently that is in books and ebooks which I publish, but I reserve the rights to use the work captured and created for all purposes.
Currently I have no great need for pay-only models that don’t shoot at least art nude.
I prefer to work with models that can pose themselves, bring ideas to the set and that are open to ideas.
I like to create work together with a model.
Paid (model/client pays me)
Some models want photos that they can use commercially or other use that limits what I can use them for, then this is a regular paid assignment.
