I recently did a TF* shoot with a model I found online. It was an experiment that didn't quite work. Some of you might recall the homeless guy picture. Anyway, I told the model I wasn't happy with the images and didn't feel right handing them over; that I felt it might come back to haunt me - seeing at the statement made in the images didn't convey and it offended people, which was not my intent. He continued to ask for them and pursue the images. I eventually told him I'd see what I could do - which was my attempt to get him off my back. Finally, he sent me a poorly written and offensive text message that stated he's thinking about seeking legal council for the images. He wants them for his portfolio and promises not to use them for commercial purposes or use my name. He didn't sign a model release. So what does the law state? If this goes any further (he's a rich kid with a parent in local government), am I in for it? I still don't think I should release the images. I really don't want to see them somewhere years down the road. Please, any help is much appreciated. Thanks!
