Model releases and my mistake

posted on 25th of october, 2007

Today was one of those days. I knew I'd have a batch of e-mails from DT. I submitted a bunch of photos from this past weekend, including some amazing photos of 3 of my friends / models.

As I looked through my inbox I saw the "Image Selected" sprinkled throughout, and a bunch of not selected's as well. Oh no!

I read the reason, and rechecked my latest model release. Our newest edition to our climbing group signed his release on Sunday. He filled almost everything out, but left out a field. The rejections were for incomplete model releases. Ah.

Clearly my bad here. I needed to recheck the form to be sure it was all filled in. His phone number wasn't on there. A quick call this morning confirmed he didn't mean to leave it off.

So, now I'll be resubmitting some shots. Whoops! There's my lesson for the day.

For anyone else using models, make sure all the fields are filled in before uploading the MR.

I'll look forward to the resubmits, as my friend made some amazing moves that really came through with the photos.

About me

I'm very new to stock photography, but not photography itself. I've shot scenes from an Appalachian Trail Hike in 2001, moose of the great north woods (loons too), and my travels across the US over 2006 in a 25 ft Airstream. A friend suggested trying Dreamstime and posting some of my latest photography. I sure hope you enjoy what I share here. If you're curious about photos I don't post here, stop by my website listed on my profile.
