Model's Remorse

Just a little RANT, as it's called today.... Actually, this is a note to models, that have "Remorse" about the photos he or she has taken with a photographer.

I have over the years, had models come back to me and say, please don't post those topless and/or nudes of me anywhere. Being a considered photographer and respecting models wishes, I would remove those photographs. Unfortunately, I'm less likely to do this today.

If I've been paid for this photo session, then I will considered it more. However, if I've paid you, you are work product and I will request a refund for my services.

On another hand, "some" models have very slick and conniving ways, to have photos removed.... My family, friends and/or Church will or have seen them. With all that said, if you/model don't want these photo published, please don't take them. Your other alternative is, to pay the photographer and ask for "limited rights" to the photographs.

If a Photographer/Stylist/MUA/Designer have spent 2 -3 or more hours working with you and later you ask for photograph removal, this is a "WASTE of TIME" for all parties involved.... This is also very DISRESPECTFUL and INCONSIDERATE. 

If you have modeled, please don't come back later asking for the photographs not to be posted or removed; This should be negotiated up front, prior to any photo session.
