LEGAL LOOKBOOK: HOW TO HIRE A MODEL FOR YOUR PHOTO SHOOT
A business guide to hiring and working with a model, plus project checklist, a template legal contract, and educational videos on the law you need to know
Are you planning a photo shoot and need to hire a model to appear in your product pictures, lookbook, or social media images, but don't know how to start the process?
Do you know the legal rights that you'll need to secure from the model so you own the product pictures and can use them for all of your marketing and advertising purposes?
In the age of Instagram and eCommerce, high quality photographs that convey your brand's visual story and messaging to the public are a must to drive sales.
Smart preparation with your model will ensure that the photo shoot runs smoothly so you will get the photographs you need for your fashion business. Poor preparation can lead to wasted time, unusable product shots or photographs that you don't own or can only use for a limited purpose.

WE MAKE FASHION LAW EASY
We, Katharyn Bond and Rachel Fischbein, are California licensed attorneys. We each have our own law firms specializing in Fashion Law, and counsel designers manufacturing and selling apparel, jewelry, shoes and other accessories on start-up law, financing, intellectual property, contractual transactions and regulatory matters.
We know firsthand how fashion designers often lack the resources and access to affordable legal resources to help operate and protect their creative and online businesses. The result is the legal affairs are often neglected, leaving a designer at risk for litigation and even the loss of the business in the future.
We've joined forces to create the Fashion Law Studio, an online legal educational platform offering affordable legal resources to empower fashion businesses. The Fashion Law Studio offer online courses that explain legal subject matter based on the practical tasks faced by designers, plus legal resources such as template contracts and "how-to" check lists designed to provide more complete DIY legal solutions.
Our mission is to make Fashion Law easy.
