If you ever get the opportunity to work on a commercial modeling job, you will be asked to sign a model a modeling contract on the set. It is called a model release form. This is a legal document that gives the photographer permission to use your image. The model release form has to be signed. Watch Out A modeling job that was only used in a magazine In every model release form you will find specific words giving the photographer permission to use your image through any media or for any purpose. This might not be the way you or your agent negotiated the usage. If you were told that the ad will run in a magazine add, then that is the only way the ad can run. If you sign the release form as is, without making the proper changes, then your image can be used in high exposure formats (billboards, posters, on the side of a bus or even on a TV commercial) without you or your agent receiving any additional money. You can read more about how to best handle the release form by looking at page 74 in my book How to Become a Successful Actor and Model I know models who have lost thousands of dollars because they did not know how to make the proper changes in the model release form and signed the document as it was written. Always be careful when signing the model release form. Get the right information to protect yourself and your agent and make sure you receive all of the money you deserve.
