Hi when doing Time For do you have a contract or just go by trust?

Quick answer: No contract.

Longer answer: What elements of the shoot are you looking to protect with your paper work? Reimbursement of your looses should the model no show or protection against the selling of your images to the mythical owner of a phantom publication for thousands of Monopoly £'s?

Assuming that you have an agreement and consideration (modelling time and whatever the TF is) that is not illegal and both parties have the capacity to agree; you have a contract

+1

Although one that is likely to cost more than it's worth to enforce if things go wrong. Trust that the contract will be fulfilled is therefore very important.

Contract, all sessions I undertake have terms and conditions therefore a contract exists between me and the client.

Even if I didn't have terms and conditions there is the expectation of performance and rendered services so a contract is in force regardless. Even an e-mail agreeing to turn up and provide a service is seen as a binding contract under UK law.

Silly question.

You mean: written contract or verbal contract.

If two people are not known to each other then safer to have a contract as you both have a reason for agreeing to shoot in the first place i dont do any image unless i can show it off myself . The model is going to want it good enough to show so she has a use so theirfore contract required
its not if the model or photographer gets paid but the use. You both wanted credited so to me any shoot should have paperwork without exception also after checking idea its another form of age
