Thanks Rusty, I'll keep referring back to that, and try to keep it in mind. The "I'm on assignment" part I think will be a good way of keeping the mindset.
I did download the ASMP App. I was able to put my personal info in, and it seems to be keeping it. There was a complaint about that, but that bug seems to be fixed. As far as templates go, I was under the impression that there are sample, or template releases under "Getty Images Model" and Getty Images Property", but there are none.It says No Getty Images forms found.
The other template seems to be working. I have been messing around with it. So, is there a way to E-sign the releases? In other words, you have a subject you happened upon, they agree to allow you to photograph them, and would sign your model release. Is there a way to allow that with your iPhone and the App?
In the agreement with the property owner, the opening line is "For valuable consideration received as _______. I being the legal owner of . . .(the property blah blah blah).
In the case of Earl the Orchard owner, my arrangement with him is, I will provide him with photos that he can use for their business website, personal use and advertising of the business. I get to copyright the photos, so that I appear as the photographer, and I get to use the photos for my portfolio and self promotion. So, do I just spell out what he gets, basically as I have written, as being valuable considerations? My part is actually covered in the document in another part.
Maybe this next question should be a new post, but lets try it here and see.
I shoot photos of the Pick-your-own apple harvest festivities. I capture an image of a little kid taking a great big bite out of a carmel covered apple. Cute photo. The owner likes it. Wants to post it on the website. Cool right? Maybe. No model release, but then again, they are at a public event, on another's private property. No expectation of privacy. What if he uses that photo as well as other festivity photos for advertising in the local paper, or local TV station for the next years event. Is that a problem?
Being a minor child, is that a (the) issue, or is there no issue?
If it was an adult, and I turned, saw the opportunity, and captured it on the 200mm lens. Cool or not?
At what point do I need to approach the person, if at all, and say, hey, I'm the event photographer, and would like to use your image for event promotion, as well as for my professional portfolio. Would you be willing to sign this model release? (then we get back to the digital signature issue with the iPhone app.)
Thanks Brit-007, I'll have a look.
