Quick Tip #55

Category: Photographers & Modeling Photos
For: Male & Female Models

When receiving final images from a shoot, give credit where credit is due!

Plan on using your modeling images online? List the photographer's name, company name, website--whatever information there is that lets people know who took the picture. That includes tagging on Facebook, writing this info in the photo description box, etc. It's not that hard and doesn't take away from the picture at all.

Does the photographer have a logo they've included on some of the images? Then those are probably the versions you should upload to the Internet. Having the logo on the picture serves as credit by itself and means you don't have to take the extra step of providing credit in another form.

I always let any photographer I work with know that I provide proper credit on any and all of the images I use for online purposes. You'd be surprised how elated they get when they hear this. But their reaction makes sense. We all strive to be masters of our craft and something as simple as giving credit goes a long way. The same can and should also be done with other industry professionals involved in a shoot (makeup artist, hair stylist, wardrobe, etc.).

 Not sure how to go about giving credit? Ask the photographer if he/she has any preference.
