What is Stock Photography/Videography?
“Stock photography is the supply of photographs licensed for specific uses. It is used to fulfill the needs of creative assignments instead of hiring a photographer, often for a lower cost. Today, stock images can be presented in searchable online databases. They can be purchased and delivered online. Often, these photographs involve people, and are produced in studios using a wide variety of models posing as professionals,stereotypes, expressing common emotions and gesticulations, or involving pets. Other common stock photography niches include images related to travel and tourism, as well as conceptual photography.” – Wikipedia
Why do I need to sign a Model Release?
“A model release is a legal document that gives a contributor permission to use a model’s likeness to create and sell content covered by the release. It makes clear that the model will not be further compensated beyond what is agreed on at the time of the shoot
Model releases help protect the contributor, the model, the agency and the end user alike. And even if you shoot yourself, you’ll need a release. With the proper paperwork, everyone knows what to expect from each other, and should any disagreements arise later on, this document can be the deciding factor.” – iStockphoto
