Terms and Conditions of Collaborations

I will often do collaborations, generally called TF (Trade For) shoots. This means all parties involved are providing their services for free and then everyone receives copies of the images to use for non profit with full credit to all involved.

It's rare that something is completely free, they'll be costs for travel, makeup, props, studio, etc. As a general rule I will provide the studio (if needed) at my cost but will not cover travel costs. There are other factors, such as experience and who approached who. It may be that costs are shared down the middle, so whatever the total cost will be each will pay an equal share. At the other end of the scale, if you are a very experienced model that can bring a lot to my portfolio I may front all costs.

  • I will provide basic retouched shots usually within 4 weeks* by email or email download link. Depending on quantity it may be a batch within 4 weeks and then others to follow as and when complete.¬†Conceptual shots or those requiring more editing may take longer. *Can change depending on work load, I cannot guarantee time scales.
  • The number of images is dependent on how many sets. I normally aim for 2-3 per set/look. From past experience it averages 10-20 retouched shots from a 4 hour shoot. At a minimum it will be 2 per hour shooting.
  • I DO NOT provide all images, I only send out retouched shots.
  • Providing a preview of shots for selecting favourites to edit is at my discretion. Generally I am not keen on models picking shots based on how they feel about how they look rather than how the whole image looks.
  • All images will have my small logo, 'KING'
  • Images are sent web sized, normally 1080 pixels high. Full res images are available on request without logo but are for submission or personal print ONLY, not for selling your own (signed or not) copies.
  • All parties involved need to be credited where possible and generally images are for portfolio and social media uses. This includes printed media where a common courtesy is to inform all those that the images are going to be submitted and again when the images appear. Please inform me if you plan to use the images elsewhere.
  • No one can sell images, make a profit in any way or use for commercial purposes without the express permission of the other parties. If I ever feel shots may be worth selling I will ask the parties involved for permission and split profits equally.
  • Featuring images on paid content sites such as onlyfans or patreon constitutes profit making and is not allowed without agreeing on separate terms with the other parties.
  • Do not edit any images you are given, this includes adding 'filters'. If you want a particular edit changed then contact me first. Slight modification such as censoring or cropping off the logo is okay for some online distributions such as for Instagram as long as there is accompanying credits.
  • I retain copyright, which is standard for UK photographers.

 These are not set in stone, we can discuss if you have any issues with these points.
