Licensed Use of Images
The Company will take a number of Images during each Event or Session. The exact number cannot be determined or guaranteed in advance as the number taken is determined by the situation itself. Following the Session or Event, a number of Images with reasonable quality and minimal defects will be selected and posted for review. The company may provide the Model with one or a combination of several licenses to its Images as described below. In all cases the Company retains ownership of the final image and the raw image captured (the digital negative). The Company does not provide raw Images directly from the cameras and in most cases do not provide a CD with all Images. The Company grants the follow types of licenses for the use of its Images:
Personal Use Licensing of License
Personal use Images are the most common Images for licensing. Personal use Images may be used for many non-commercial (non-revenue generating) purposes in most cases. Some examples of this would include: Facebook, Instagram, Model Mayhem, email distributions, to print personal use Images, up to 8×10 or slightly larger and in cases where you do not desire to dramatically crop the Images. The Images are also provided for your limited portfolio use but not your Agency’s and for your friends to share assuming you confirm that they also agree to the restrictions as specified here.
There are certain restrictions on the use of personal use licensed Images. You may not crop or alter these Images or allow a person or program or application you use to do so for you. This includes change to the ratio or height to width, dramatically altering the size or resolution of the image, changing the colours, making them black and white if they are in colour, applying treatments to them to dramatically alter their appearance or removing the Company’s logo from them. You may not remove persons or features from the Images and may not alter or remove the background on applications such as Facebook will slightly reduce the resolution, this is acceptable, others such as Instagram may dramatically alter the size and resolution. The model is not permitted to use the Images in these types of applications.
If you desire to make any of the listed alterations (or similar ones) you must contact the Company first and discuss same - in some cases the Company may do it for you or permit others to do it for you. The Model does not own these Images. If posting to Facebook or other social media site, you MUST tag the Company even where the Company’s logo is on the image. In most cases the Company expects a comment to be placed below the image with a link to the Company’s web site gallery. You may not make money using or selling or including these Images in other media or promotions. Personal use licensed Images are provided in a medium resolution format that is sized to meet Facebook posting requirements. This is between 800 and 900 kilobytes in size.
