Gerald Figueras | Model Name

Bodouir Agreement and Model Release

 

Let’s use this document to check all points of agreement previously discussed between us.

No need to expect an overly complicated contract swollen with legal terms that would only make everyone cringe.

But it’s also important to have things written down so that both the photographer and model have every little detailed covered.

We want this work relationship to not only be financially satisfying, but also fulfilling in artistic and creative levels. So let’s get the boring stuff dealt with first.

Let’s get to business!
