And therein lies the crux of the difference between hobby & professional (re: other threads asking the diff)
One is for joy without the multitude of legal trappings and other considerations.
The other is for money and encompasses all the encroaching do's & don'ts.
It's been said before that a photo business is 90% business and 10% photography. Debatable as to the ratio ... but, it is there to a degree. Maybe not quite as bad as it seems up front (learning curve, etc.) That's not to say there isn't any joy attained in professional photography, but that's not the primary mission.
+1 @ RDKirk ... model release is not a contract.
+1 Also @ the end user is responsible for ensuring they have the appropriate releases for their intended usage ... just that the photographer often collects them, since they are obviously there with the model at the time of shoot ... whereas the end user would have to try and track them down afterwards (yeah right).
