Easy Release til iPhone og iPad

Når man fotograferer mennesker og vil sælge sine fotos, så skal der som udgangspunkt foreligge en modelgodkendelse. Det vil være praktisk om man kunne indhente en sådan godkendelse "on-location" og det er nu muligt med en ny applikation til iPhone og iPad. Programmer hedder - "Easy Release" - og gør det muligt at udfylde en kontrakt mellem fotograf og model, vedhæfte et foto af modellen, modtage modellens underskrift (via den berøringsfølsomme skærm) og fremsende den udfyldte og underskrevne modelgodkendelseskontrakt til flere email adresser i pdf-format!

Michael Bang har skrevet om dette på sin blog, hvor du også kan hente den kontrakt, som bl.a. verdens mest sælgende stock fotograf - Yuri Arcurs - anvender.

Følgende tekst forklarer hvorfor og i hvilke tilfælde man skal sikrer sig en godkendelse:
"A release is a written agreement between you and the person you are photographing, or the person who owns the property you are photographing. The purpose of the release is to protect you from any future lawsuits the person might file for claims such as defamation and invasion of privacy.

A model release says the person being photographed has given consent to be photographed and to the use of the images you capture. It doesn’t just apply to professional models or situations where people know they are posing for photos. You should seek to get a signed model release any time that your photos contain recognizable images of people, unless you are certain that you will never want to use them for anything other than editorial purposes.

A property release says that the owner of a certain property, such as a pet or a building, has given you consent to take and use images of the property. You don’t need one for public property, such as government buildings (although you may run into problems just from photographing them, for security reasons). But for images of private property — and particularly of objects that are closely identified with specific people — you are safer if you get a release.

The releases you obtain should be saved forever and should be linked in some way with the photographs to which they relate. You can expect to be asked to produce them whenever you license an image, and you will need them if you ever have to defend yourself in court."
