Yes. I'm the photographer who took the photos for Joanne. At the time of the shoot in my studio ( for all the shots expect the crooped headshot which you have hosted on CLUBSNAP ), it was done on a TFCD basis and copyrights is shared by Joanne and myself. It was stated that no third party is to use it for any commerical porpose without the consent of both parties. In your case, it is to publicize the paid photo shoot with her. A photo of the intended model is necessary for this kind of event and if asked, I would have given my consent for free as I would like to help her as well. But I was not even aware of the usage much less have given my permission and I belive that Joanne is not aware of it either.

The managerment of Looking Glass Models have call me last night and we've had a nice chat to clear up the issue, the details I'll not go into at this point. I find them to be polite and professional in their handling of this matter and have given them my concent to use the images to promote Joanne as one of their models without payment of any fees. Joanne is a great model to work with. During her shoot, I find that she take directions well, have a good att. towards the shoot, can give me the kind of look that I'm asking for and we did not even engage a make up artisan!!. She's one model I don't mind shooting again.
As I've given LGM my concent to use the images I'll take it that your rights to use the images is concented by LGM. As I've said, it not about money, it's about doing things right. As a photographer we must be seen to be protecting not only our own rights but the rights of our models/subjects as well. Don't worry about the inconvenience, it's all right so long as things are cleared up. It's a minor thing, but something that needs to be done.
Hope your shoot turn up well.
