What are stock images?
They are images of events, objects and/or people that are bought on a royalty-free basis and can be used and reused for commercial design purposes. The photographer (or stock photography distributor) has ownership to the images, and the commercial designer has some limited usage of the photo (which is set out in the Terms of Service by the company you purchase the stock photos from).
“Stock images are previously captured with a licence to be used in publicity o promotional campaigns to illustrate objects, concepts or specific ideas.”
Clients acquire the licence and can use the images with COMERCIAL AND EDITORIAL PURPOSES, the client acquires UNLIMITED RIGHTS OVER THE IMAGES IN TIME, BUT IT USES CAN NOT BE DEFAMATORY OR PEJORATIVE FOR THE MODELS.
Examples of how images can the content be used include: web sites, blog publications, social media, advertisement, marketing campaigns, newspapers, magazines, books, film and tv productions, web applications, packaging.
All images must have a model release that grants the rights to the photographer.
The retributions for models is only one and included in the fee agreed for the shoot day.
