How “exclusive” (limiting) is your Release contract?

When you do modelling work for a company, you’ll be asked to sign a “Release”, a contract where you officially give permission to the company to use the images they make of you, in exchange for payment.

You can see our Release as a PDF – it’s a short 4-page legal contract, but it’s written in plain English (as much as our lawyers let us).

Like any contractual agreement, there can be good and bad things for you, so it’s always best to read it – we know, they are sooo boring 🥱 – or get someone you trust to read it for you. The best is to pay a lawyer to, but that can cost around US$200 for a one-hour consultation, but a trusted friend would be fine as well. But, we encourage you to empower yourself and read our Release on your own first. You’re welcome to ask us questions about it in your Info Session.

“The contract signing was really different….It was really quick and easy. Not a lot of big stacks of paperwork to do! It was a lot less serious” (Sena, Sep 2021).

In a nutshell, when you sign our Release on a shoot day, it gives us permission to use the media we captured of you on our website, and to promote our website with that media. In exchange, we pay you. 💰

Our Release is non-exclusive, which means, you can work with us, and continue to do similar work for other companies, post images of yourself online, or really do whatever you want in that regard.
