The American Society of Media Photographers (ASPM) is holding an event about “A Photographer’s Guide to Model Releases” on Tues., Nov. 9, 2010
When photographing people, do you get model releases? Do you need to? What might happen if you don’t? And what about buildings and other property?
Furthermore, are you sitting on large catalogs of images that you think are unsellable because you don’t have releases? Do you ever worry about being sued? Or have you ever been threatened with a suit because you took someone’s picture?
Regardless of the kind of photo business you’re in, these are critical questions. And chances are that your assumptions may, in fact, be incorrect. Don’t fret though, you’re not alone. Essentially every photographer recently surveyed failed to properly understand some very basic tenets of when and why model releases are required.
Join us on November 9th to hear Dan Heller address these and other issues as he outlines his comprehensive framework for understanding and working with releases. Far from being a boring topic punctuated with a bunch of legalese, understanding model releases may be just what you need to get an edge in this tight and competitive market.
So remember to join us for an interactive and highly informative session on November 9th. We’ll see you there.
Dan Heller is a photographer, author and photo industry analyst. Among his books is “The Photographer’s Guide to Model Releases,” published by Wiley & Sons, which is considered the the most thorough and authoritative work on the subject. For more information, visit www.danheller.com.
