Terms of Service

I am a professional photographer that derives income from my photography services. I might sell prints, specially items (such as a coffee mugs, mouse pads, etc), file downloads for my digital art groups, or posting on my Patreon site (if you don't want them on my Patreon Site, just tell me its not a deal breaker). I may post or sell nude images captured during the shoot. I don't shoot and have no interest in "open leg" concepts. I require a commercial model release to be signed prior to shoot day.
