I'm just beginning a new website featuring fine art nude Photography. NOT PORN> I'm advertising for models to come test shoot. What im offering is $50.00 just to show up and shoot about 15 pics. (they will keep ownership to these.) this is just to see if i want to use them. Ok...im getting to my question. My model release offers the model to choose: 1.) cash payment of $100.00/hr - no ownership of images 2.) 20% paid to models from sales of prints and money paid for the members section of said website. - this option allows model to retain partial ownership. In otherwords...I ask her permission to sell her pictures outside of the site...should the opportunity arise. Of course she can still take 20% of the sales. Im wondering though...if a model is chosen by playboy to do a test shoot...who owns those images? what occured is that I had a 19 yr old model show up ( with her "stage"MOM!) I explained what i was offering and gave her a copy of the release. Mr.s "Stage MOM" proceeded to act like she knew all about the modeling biz and the "standard" fees paid to models, etc. She asked if i worked with agents and I said no. She really got up in arms like Im trying to cheat the girl. I explained to her that this was 'MY WEBSITE" and that If she didn't like it they didnt have to participate. here's my take on it. Im an artist. Really. Im a painter, sculptor, illustrator, photographer. I really want people who enjoy the art of it. Not to get all bent out of shape just because I don't conform to some "standard" of compensation in the Modeling biz!
