Potentially whatever they want. It is entirely possible if you did a TF glaamour shoot one day you could see those pictures in Nuts the next week or anywhere on the web. The copyright to the images belongs to the photographer unless explicitly stated otherwise. I assume this is what you were getting at. In the main I think they just get used as portfolio material such a how I have done.
I dont think its necessary for comments iv clearly stated im new and naive...
I believed togs was short for phoTOGraphers ..is it not?
just iv heard a few stories and cant decide if its true or just people with to much time and jealousy on there hands..people editting images to make girls look naked etc
is that ridiculous or could that happen. thanks x

I can't imagine too many people going to the trouble of doing that since there's so many models willing to pose nude/topless anyway. There may be one or two cranks/stalkers/children around that do it I suppose.
Be wary of what people tell you 'in private'. They often don't have a clue but pretend they do.
I've always used selected shots for promotional purposes. I'm currently launching a new business next ( this ;D ) year and am doing a number of TFP shots for promotional purposes. I usually have a contract and a release signed by the model and myself at the end of the session allowing use for these reasons only. If you are asked to sign a release, ALWAYS make sure you read it. If the photographer tries to hurry you on just say you will take it home and send it back to him signed. Do not sign away all rights to your pictures ( yes, YOURS - they belong to both you and the photographer ) or, like in your horror stories, you will find yourself in some dubious publication years later, and legally WITHOUT YOUR KNOWLEDGE OR PERMISSION. The release and contract covers both yours and the photographers proverbial asses, because it states exactly what, when and where the shots will be used. Though I get these documents, I still ask the models permission before I submit shots to magazines, editorials or competitions. And make sure you get a signed copy for yourself also!
