Terms, Rules & Conditions of Photoshootings
Here you can find my terms and rules of cooperation that I adhere to and follow without any exceptions. Be sure to include them in the Photographer – Model agreement and/or Model Release that we will both sign, so we can respect eachother.
1. Character of pictures I pose
2. I never allow to capture the feminine intimate places and such must be not visible on photography as far as it is possible, considering of course character of the picture.
3. I’m not going to take away from photographer ability to decide on his own vision, however mentioning above rule, I reserve the right to see the pictures during or right after the session and delete those which eventually will be showing more than agreed.
4. Final photographs cannot show the model in the unfavorable or offensive way including associations with the violence of any kind.
2. Last, but not least, all photographers I collaborated with are very satisfied with our results, and – what happens quite often – they admit their expectations have been exceeded.
3. Financial Conditions
2. Expences – If I have to travel to a destination, all costs, like accommodation and transportation has to be covered also, what is pretty reasonable (except when I already have bookings at the place you want to shoot and announced that). I don’t expect anybody to pay for extra things beyond that.
3. Cancellations – My time is money as any professional service. I understand things may happen, but it is too difficult to book last minute to cover the loss. If you cancel for any reason I keep 50% of the remuneration.
4. Final Terms
Prior to making the next step to collaboration you need to accept all of the terms stated here. Contacting me or sending questions regarding photo shooting means you have read them and accepted. If you wish to have a printed version of Contract signed by me, be sure to include there my terms also as follows:
Terms of Contract Agreement
“If anywhere in this document has been found or suggested otherwise, the following provisions take precedence over the interpretation of this Agreement over other:

2. The Model warrants her consent to appear fully and/or partially nude in some or all of the photographs, excluding in all cases visibility of female reproductive organs. Moving fully naked during the session does not permit the photographer to capture parts of the body mentioned above, even without the intention of publishing.
3. Notwithstanding the above, the following uses are specifically excluded for use listed here and restrict the use of the Work accordingly: pornography and sex services, matrimonial and dating services, any use associated with or calling for violence, rape, hatred, racial or gender discrimination, discrimination or abuse of children, abuse of animals, or showing the model in unfavorable / offensive way or defame her image.
4. The model retains the right to view (during or right after the session) the original photographs resulting from the photo session and permanently delete those where the parts of her body excluded from this contract (paragraph 2) are visible or other rules have been broken.
5. The Photographer, who is also understood as the organizer of the photo session, assumes full responsibility for the legality of the undertaking related to the session and transfers on himself any legal consequences related to a possible violation of local law.
6. The Photographer is responsible for ensuring the safety of the model during the session and immediately before and after the session within a reasonable time, taking care in particular to avoid any detriment to health.
