Did some headshots for an author. I need to provide an agreement granting him the right to use his shots. Is there a form for this somewhere? Or just a nice paragraph I can type myself?Thanks.

I always write the terms of use on my invoice.

A letter is all that is needed.

I dont know all the uses he plans for the images, and he wants to do future creative shoots featuing himself. Was hoping to find some boilerplate language that covers the needs for authors. I may wind up writing it myself, thanks!

You can find sample usage license forms in James Harrington's book "Best Business Practices for Photographers," the ASMP publication "Business Practices for Professional Photography," or the PLUS web site.

I usually list, that the client can use for personal use, commercial use ( it is much different than personal so needs to me listed), digital and in print. I charge a flat fee so I don't care to limit what they can use it for.

List the uses that the authors knows now and have a clause stating that additional uses not included in the list are subject to negotiation (IE more cash).

OK, so is this sufficient?

You can also add "further uses to be negotiated"

You should specify a term of use, scope of use (i.e., world wide, local, US only, etc.), and specify that the images cannot be transferred to any 3rd party w/o your express permission.
