For valuable consideration received, I grant “The Light Committee” and its employees or representatives (collectively referred to hereafter as "Photographer") the following rights and unrestricted permission concerning any photographs or video that Photographer has taken or may take of me or in which I may be included with others. I grant Photographer the right to take photographs or video of me for the purposes of providing me photography or videography services for my business or personal use and to use the photos or videos. I also grant Photographer the right to use, post, or publish the photos or videos and my likeness on the Photographer’s business website and online social media profiles, such as but not limited to, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and Google My Business. I release and discharge Photographer from any and all claims and demands that may arise out of or in connection with the use of the photographs or video, including without limitation any and all claims for libel or violation of any right of publicity or privacy. I acknowledge that, as established by US copyright laws, Photographer retains copyright to photos and video Photographer produces.

Accordingly, Photographer grants me a lifetime license to make unlimited electronic and hard copy prints/ copies of the photos/ images for such promotional (including personal and professional) uses and purposes. Photographer authorizes any third-party printing or copying service/ provider to make prints/ copies of the photos/ images upon my request.

I also hereby release Photographer from any liability by virtue of any blurring, distortion, alteration, optical illusion, or use in composite form, whether intentional or otherwise, that may occur or be produced in the taking of such photographs or video or in any subsequent processing of them. I further acknowledge an understanding that photographer only provides extra photos at his discretion and even then only extra photos that photographer deems as usable, which generally are provided as web-quality JPEG files of approximately 1,600 ppi size (long edge). I also agree that by paying for the services or selecting photos to have retouched I confirm my approval for the work and services provided. I also acknowledge that photographer, by US copyright law, does not have to or shall not provide original files – also known as RAW files. This authorization and release shall also inure to the benefit of the heirs, legal representatives, licensees, and assigns of Photographer, as well as the person(s) for whom Photographer took the photographs or video. I am a legally competent adult and have the right to contract in my own name. I have read this document and fully understand its contents.
