Photography Agreement for 24Moves.com
The following is my current photography release, please review before you arrive to a shoot.
PHOTOGRAPHY RELEASE / REPRODUCTION RIGHTS / LIABILITY RELEASE / PORTRAIT AGREEMENT
Hello! My name is Joe Lippeatt of 24Moves, I am VERY excited to work with you! This agreement lays out what you and I can do with our images, where to find proofs, when to expect images, what happens in an emergency, etc.
A note about "appropriate content". If you want to pose nude, you hired the wrong guy. ;) Undies are "OK" if that's an artistic requirement for your themed shoot. But visible bra straps and underwear, and underwear lines under tight clothing is a fad. (oh yeah, I went there). We are going to make images you will enjoy a lifetime. If you think the 80's "Big Hair" portraits are funny, just wait to see what people say about bright pink bra straps and t-back panties in 5 years. If a photograph is damaging to your long-term reputation or the 24Moves brand, it will probably get deleted. So pull up your pants and cover your bra -- or go commando like I do.
MODEL'S PRINTING AND REPRODUCTION RIGHTS AGREEMENT:
a) TPS may print any of the photos for personal and promotional use (i.e. composite cards, resume, and printed portfolio) if "Shoot Consideration Is TFP" on this agreement indicates "Yes". Otherwise, prints are available for purchase through 24Moves.
