Photographing people is an interesting art form. The photographer captures images of a person. Legally, in most cases, the photographer owns the rights on how and where that photograph may be used. If you hire me to take your photograph, then I still have to give you permission to use it! Crazy.
Any client of mine, either paid, for trade, or free, will need to sign a contract. It’s nothing complicated, but it makes sure that you know that I can use my photograph of you, and you can also use that photograph, and the terms are specified in the contract.
If there are special privacy needs for my photographs of you, or limitations in what you would like me to do with them, then we can discuss them, and they will be in that contract. If you would like exclusive use of photographs I take, then the price for the service will reflect that.
Please contact me, if you have any questions.
