    Re: Contract Content & Wording

    Charlie has the Best solution... Don't retain any rights to the images... Simply give them to the church to do with as they please and let them deal with the website and distribution, and any liability... It isn't like you're giving up your rights to the Million dollar church image, IYKWIM

    I understand where you're coming from Fred, but here's the thing: when I started taking photos in 2015, my intent for the images was solely for a wall calendar fund raiser and to share the images in a private Facebook group.

    A few of the people specifically said I could take their photos providing they didn't get used on the church's web site. At that time, the church wasn't doing anything to update the web site so I assured them it wasn't a problem. It wasn't something I was going to do. Then over a year later, the church decided to create a brand new web site and wanted to use the photos. So I told the church not everyone wanted their pics posted there and that they needed to ask each person (I couldn't remember everyone who asked me and never had anyone sign any release forms).

    But now the church will decide the best way to handle it so each member gets to either sign something or another way to obtain permission.

    The info the Charlie gave me should give me ideas on what to include and possibly how to word things.

    It's just that the members trusted me to take their photos knowing those images wouldn't be posted on the web site. So I need to make sure those requests are honored. But as I said, I know where you're coming from. Unfortunately it is too late to do it that way since I gave these people my word.

    Nope, you're doing the right thing in ensuring that agreements are upkept and everyone has the same understanding. It may be simpler to let the church maintain those promises going forward, but agree you want to do right for the people you already photographed.

    This is the best solution you could have hoped for.
