If I plan a day at the beach, when packing my camera bag, I always include at least half a dozen Dreamstime model release forms, as I know that while I am there, I am going to snap off some wonderful photos of strangers enjoying the day, as much as we are.So,... continue reading

How Do Beginners - Like me - Get Models?

Hi Guys!I decided to write this as I imagine I am not the only one to ever have had this dilemma. A lot of people have great shooting ideas but just don't know how to approach the tricky subject - of models and, of course, associated releases - required to implement such ideas. The unfortunate consequence of this is that a lot of creative ideas remain just that - ideas that never become reality. What a shame...There can be no doubt that Top Pros - such as the Yuri Arcurs' - amongst us are... continue reading

Model Releases

Life is what happens when you're paying attention to something else...

When I got my DSLR a couple of years ago, little did I know the life change that would occur.I bought a Canon DSLR that also shot HD video, mostly for Microstock. I really needed experience in using it, so I signed up to do a 48 Hour Film Festival.Based on the work I did for that, I got hired to shoot a few local commercials and invited to participate in several short films.And then, based on all of that work, I was hired as Director of Photography to shoot a feature film. And then back... continue reading

As time goes by, models get older... Thoughts about Model Releases

I'm very impressed by the powerful search engine DT provides to designers; so many little details that make one's job easier and give everyone a chance to find the right photos for the right project.For instance I like the fact that when you upload a model release, you specify the age of the model, allowing designers to refine their search to specific age brackets.I guess that many of us have favorite models that we will hopefully keep on photographing for years. Cute baby Melba, photographed... continue reading
