Designers and retailers commission studio and location shoots to ensure that garments and/or fabric are shown to maximum advantage. Hair and beauty product photography is also a frequent request. Professional models can be provided to ensure all goes to plan and will only be recommended if I have worked with them or their agency before. I have included downloadable model release forms at the bottom of this page.
A model release form should be used in all cases to protect both the client and photographer by ensuring that permission is in place to use the images. Some agencies will provide a release during the contract negotiations, otherwise you will need to provide one and have it signed by each model. Here are two options:
You can download a commercial release here for use with paid models – COMMERCIAL MODEL RELEASE
You can download a non-commercial release here for use with employees who are photographed at work or friends/family who volunteer to shpt without payment – NON-COMMERCIAL MODEL RELEASE
