2.) Permission for Photography and Video & Understanding of Work Terms

 

For valuable consideration received, I grant “The Light Committee” and its employees or representatives (which may be collectively referred to hereafter as “Photographer” or “photographer”) the following rights and unrestricted permission concerning any photographs or video that Photographer has taken or may take of me or in which I may be included with others. I grant Photographer the right to take photographs or video of me for the purposes of providing me photography or videography services for my business or personal use. I also grant Photographer the right to use, post, or publish the photos or videos and my likeness on the Photographer’s business website and online social media profiles, such as but not limited to, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and Google, and to show or display the photos of me and my likeness in or at The Light Committee studio. I release and discharge Photographer from any and all claims and demands that may arise out of or in connection with the use of the photographs or video, including without limitation any and all claims for libel or violation of any right of publicity or privacy. I acknowledge that, as established by US copyright laws, Photographer retains copyright to photos and video Photographer produces. The Photographer is granting me a lifetime license to use all delivered images (including any originals/ copies/ prints thereof) for digital or online self-promotion, including on any online forum or website (for example, but not limited to, business websites, social media websites, online directories, LinkedIn, Facebook, Instagram). I understand for printed usage that I might need to secure the Photographer’s written permission, as may be required by print vendors, to print Photographer’s work, such as for business cards, brochures, resumes, actor headshot prints, and similar, and that asking Photographer for such permission can be done electronically by email. I understand I may not sell or license the photos / images for commercial use without the express written consent of Photographer and any such use will have public-facing photo credits acknowledging The Light Committee as the photographer. I further acknowledge that I may have paid Photographer for services or have been fully compensated for any photo or video shoots during the day of a photo or video shoot and I release Photographer from any further financial or other compensation for the use of any photographs or video of me. I also hereby release Photographer from any liability by virtue of any blurring, distortion, alteration, optical illusion, or use in composite form, whether intentional or otherwise, that may occur or be produced in the taking of such photographs or video or in any subsequent processing of them. I further acknowledge an understanding that photographer only provides extra photos at his discretion and even then only extra photos that photographer deems as usable, which generally are provided as web-quality JPEG files of approximately one-third the original size. I also agree that by paying for the services or selecting photos to have retouched I confirm my full approval for the work and services provided. And I acknowledge that Photographer, by US copyright law, does not have to or shall not provide original files – also known as RAW files. This authorization and release shall also inure to the benefit of the heirs, legal representatives, licensees, and assigns of Photographer, as well as the person(s) for whom Photographer took the photographs or video. I attest to being a legally competent adult and have the right to contract in my own name. If I am booking on someone else’s behalf, I agree to inform that person or those people that they are also agreeing to these terms and that they can view them on the Photographer’s website or booking page.
