Hey everyone, I had an interesting argument with my girlfriend the other day about the rights to a picture when it involves a photographer and a model. She models part-time to earn some extra cash while she is going to school. Anyways, the point of the argument was what kind of rights does the model have to the pictures? She claims that she gets complete rights to do whatever she wants with any pictures that she does. I'm pretty sure that this isn't the case but what rights does a model get? I'm sure there's a difference between a TFP shoot and a paid shoot. But, I was thinking that at most the model would get pictures for her portfolio or the occasional picture for myspace or whatever with the photog's watermark. Her reply; "Why would any model do it then if we don't get the pictures?" She believes that photographers are just too "full of themselves and their pictures." My defense to this was the art perspective, and if the many famous painters that painted people did it for free then why would they do it? Basically I'm curious as to what you guys have to say to this topic. I'm sure there will be a simple explanation that will make me feel dumb but lets hear it anyways.
