If the pictures are not being used for what they told you they are breaking a verbal contract and you can charge them a commercial amount.


I suspect the release allows them to do whatever they like with the content shot on the shoot.  Nuts bought the sets and have the release, so they can do whatever they like with them.  You could try contacting them, but I doubt you'll have any luck.

I think the thing for me is the fact they didn't ask me, or even tell me they were going to use it. Had they asked or said, i would have happily been like yeah sure!

So is it worth the hassle of emailing them? Or am I just going to make myself look silly!?

I would e-mail then and say you want a copy of the signed release, as you don`t remember giving them permission to use the pics wherever they want, this request may create an instant reaction offering token payment.

See what reaction you get, If I get a model to sign a release and then sell them elsewhere I would always give her a % .

It depends how big the pic is if it is editorial £25-£60 which is only a token payment for using your pic if they did not have permission,  but if it is an advertising shot for Nuts they know that they should be paying lots especially if the same ad appears elsewhere like billboards etc.

I signed a standard model release with them on the day


In that case just check the wording on your copy as that is most likely the only relevant factor..

Quote from katiemae
he basically said ...


The signed contract will most likely negate anything you claim the photographer might have said, as your signature signifies that you accept the terms of the contract.

Of course if the signed contract states that the image/s will only be used once in a single issue of the magazine, which is probably about as unlikely as Penelope Cruz parachuting into my back garden before sunset tonight and pledging her undying love for me, you might be able to convince them that they owe you something for breach of contract, but I doubt it.

Just look at the contract, which as you signed it you no doubt keep in a safe place as a record of the agreement reached, and all should be clear.

As for commercial value of the image, IPC Media do not value photographs of girls particularly highly as the market is awash with free content, but if your contract specifically prohibited them using the image more than once you might get a few quid out of them if they think you are going to go to the considerable expense of suing them for breach of contract.

They have recently posted pictures of me from 2 years ago or more on their site again! They seem to do whatever they like without asking you or telling you.
