I am trying to set up a photo business shooting youth sports at public locations (soccer parks/county baseball fields/etc) and getting more in tune with "model release" requirements. I'm getting frustrated, as the goal of what I wanted to do was to head out to these weekend events, shoot several hundred shots, hand out by business card to the mgrs and/or parents and invite them to review their "Action Shots" on my website. Those shots can be purchased for their own usage. I do not plan to sell these shots except to the player's parent/gaurdian/etc. I believe that I can take the shot without a release and head off to a typical news-worthy agency and try to sell it there, but that's not my market focus. I want to be able to shoot a significant amount of photos, then sell them to the attending teams's parents as an action shot. I fear that you all are going to tell me I have to chase down each child's parent, find out who it is after the game (when they are all leaving), ask them to sign a release form. If they say no, then I can only use the shot then for news agencies or editorial use? My lack of knowledge and experience in this new area for me is frustrating me - obviously - as I would like to be able to continue with youth sports photography. Are there other ways to do this besides trying to obtain permission from everyone prior to the game? I don't see a lot of other photographer's going through these motions that are local - they're not getting waivers at the site. Have they set up pre-conceived league waivers to get around this? Please help - any advice is greatly appreciated. Hopefully someone else has been down this path and can provide some experience or guidance. Thanks!
