Its my first time doing TFCD and i'm doing all my best to make this shoot right.So now i'm stuck at the contract part.
Heres what I have summed up.
1Copyright belongs to the photographer and the model and can be used in anyway if both party agrees.

2There will be a third party eyewitness at the photoshoot and is there to ensure there is no actions from the photographer that would offend the model and vice versa.

3Photographer has no responsibility in the injury or death of the model

4The model or the photographer has the rights to call off the shoot at any point of time if he or she does not feel comfortable.

To all the pros out there,help me to point out in anyway that i could benefiets of the model and me.(To protect me if i kena anything)

just Google TFCD contract. you will find #1.

if you state #3, no one will want to TFCD with you, is you duty to ensure the welfare and safety of your model.

Adult Model Release Form

Model Release is not a TFCD contract, TFCD contract is stated clearly what is agreed upon the session from both parties, eg, what model should do and what is the entitlement and compensation etc.

could try to modify the cancellation part..being not comfortable is subjective, i can wake up and say i have monday blues and don't feel comfortable i dont feel like shooting that's where either of you may lose out.

perhaps state something like due to unforeseen circumstances such as accidents, family related accidents, sudden illness etcetc just examples to clarify clearly.

just my 2 cents

need contract for the TF model?
never knw about this tho...
only knw about the model release form for stock images...
but i think it is better to have one, and state clearly what if the model can't make it at last minute..
becos, personal experience, one of my model stood me up last minute, telling me that she has got other "important" commitment that she can't come to my shoot... :cry:
haiz...... luckily that shoot is meant for 3 models... but there gone the concept.....

a simple agreement will do lah, no need to make it so official

write what is expected
copyright belongs to ___
model can use for ____
if want to use for other then permission is a must.

and any other things that you want to put down in black and white

eg. make-up provided by, clothes provided by, transport, drinks, food, blah blah blah

else just take it easy and enjoy the shoot instead of worrying about legalities

shoot and share with model, everything own time own target, happy shoot longer, not happy go home
images cannot be used for commercial purposes
