When it comes being a nude photographer, you will need to market yourself for more business. However, it is very important that you have the right permissions to be able to use the artistic photography that you take of your beautiful naked models. This is usually done through a model release form, which will include all of the details about how you will use the photography.
This form is used, not just for the protection of the models, but also for the protection of the photographer. You will be able to state exactly how you will use the photographs that you take, such as for marketing use, to help protect you against slander and liability claims. This also avoids the misunderstanding of models and can help you to gain a good reputation. These model release forms should be used for all shoots and not just nude photography.
You do not need to make up your own form, there are plenty available for download from the Internet. However, you will need to make sure that the form covers everything that you need and also includes the type of nude photography that you will be taking, whether that is fine art or fashion nude photography.
You will need to detail the intended use for the photographs and make it clear for your models. Ensure that there are no misunderstandings and allow them to answer any questions that you have regarding the photo shoot and the use of the photos afterwards.
You should ensure that the form is ready before you start the shoot. You can send it out to the models and ask them to bring it with them or you can give it to them on the day. Allow them time to read through it. You can also leave it until after the shoot so that the model is happy with the content of the shoot before signing.
You will need to make sure that the model has signed a model release form in the past. If not, then you will have to explain what it is for and the permission that she is giving you for the images. If there are any other questions, answer them in as much detail as possible. This form should not be a problem, as long as you have explained why you want to take the photos in the first place.
When you have the signature that you require, check it to make sure that it matches her real signature and that the identity and age is correct. This can be gained through a driving license or passport. Take a copy of this ID. If there has been payment agreed for the model, pay the money and then let her leave.
