    Hi can you pros out there please tell me how this works? When a photographer takes a "paid" assignment for ie. portraits, who owns the digital images?

    As I understand it, the photographer still owns the images unless he signs a consent form to say that he releases the images as part of the agreement and no longer owns the right to it.
    Is this correct?

    Also, where do you get such a release form? Its just a template but would be useful for people who are doing boudouir, glamour, nude/artistic nude portraits so the client owns the image.

    Thanks for your help!

    Hi Angela,
    if it is a model release form you require, this epz model release form might be worth looking at.


    Quote: Its just a template but would be useful for people who are doing boudouir, glamour, nude/artistic nude portraits so the client owns the image.

    If the client you refer to is the photographer, then the model release form above link should cover this.

    Alternatively, if a client you refer to is an individual who was to approach a photographer, to take images of the client in a boudouir/glamour/artistic nude etc style, and wanted the copyright of all images taken,
    and exclusive use, an agreement would need to be arranged and agreed to fit that requirement, prior to the photoshoot.
    In simple terms, this means buying the copyright from the photographer.
