Rules For Models Under 18
If you're under 18 then to model for you have to agree to the following conditions:
- You must be accompanied by a responsible adult at all times.
- This adult should preferably be someone you are closely related to, a parent, older
sister, or grandparent is ideal. Boyfriends do not make good chaperones so we do
not encourage them.
- The responsible adult and the photographer are equally responsible to ensure that
all photographs taken are decent and appropriate for the age of the model. This
is the law.
- The photographer may also be accompanied by a representative or assistant who can
also act as a witness to the shoot.
- The purpose of the shoot and nature of the content will be discussed and understood
before the shoot commences. If you have any questions at all no matter how silly
you think they may be, you should ask them anyway.
- If at any point either the model or photographer feels uneasy about the direction
of the shoot then it will stop immediately, the shoot will be over any the visiting
party will leave as soon as possible.
- It is recommended that the model and the responsible adult agree a code word or
phrase which the model can include in conversation which will indicate to the responsible
adult that they are uneasy and want the shoot to stop. This allows the adult to
intervene in a timely fashion before anyone gets upset.
- Shots in swimwear or underwear are allowed (say for catalogue work or model portfolios)
but must not be portrayed in a sexual nature and must be deemed as necessary. If
the nature of the shoot involves this type of pose it will be discussed in detail
and agreement reached by all involved before the shoot commences. Shots of this
nature may be at the request of a paying client who may also impose other rules
on the shoot.
- It is possible that a model could move during the process of a particular shot which
in turn ends up making the photograph more revealing than was ever intended. If
this should happen any such shots will be permanently deleted as soon as they are
- At any point where practicable the responsible adult can request to see previews
of the shots being taken. Depending on equipment available this may be via the camera's
own preview screen or via computer after downloading. If any shots are regarded
as unsuitable they will be deleted immediately and without question.
- Although we want to encourage all ages to be involved in our photography we do not
intend to put ourselves at risk of prosecution. To this end we tend to err on the
side of caution and will not partake in shots which would be considered too near
- As in accordance with UK law, the copyright of all photographs taken is the property
of the photographer. Permission to use the photographs for any purpose by the model
must first be agreed in writing.
In addition to the above you would be wise to read our
Good Model Guide which is full of hints and tips about the life of a model,
how to conduct yourself, and what to expect from your photo shoot.
