Vital Signs: The Legal Side of Senior Photography - PPA Today

Vital Signs: The Legal Side of Senior Photography

Dear PPA Member,

When I was seventeen, I knew everything. (Please, take a moment to stop laughing before you continue reading this.) I wanted to be treated like an adult, but as I was still a minor, I had to have my parents involved in those pesky little legal contracts and model releases...which I thought were stupid and useless.

Years later, I know now that I don't know everything, and I'm glad that adults and the legal system watch out for minors. Photographers need to know the ins and outs of those "pesky little legal contracts" when it comes to senior photography (or any kind of photography), in order to stay successful and in business. This week's Vital Signs can help, and it even covers sticky situations involving divorced parents and non-custodial guardianship arrangements. 

Turns out that those legal forms are there for a reason and can actually help you out (who would've thought?).
