Hi. I have only recently decided to take my photography more seriouslly and so find I may need a few answers to some points. I mainly do studio portraiture glamour fashion artistic nude. I belong to various camera clubs and also run my own camera club. Up until now I have always used models who I know as friends or are friends of friends. However, having now become quite well known locally I am being asked to expand my work, but as I am now in my 70's I am reluctant to get too involved. However, I now have developed a register of local models all of them just starting out on modelling. But, they are all ages from 18months up to 60+. When I did the original interviews I stipulated that anyone under 18 years had to have a parent/guardian with them and they had to sign their consent. However, I do have some questions about this. (1) I assume that if 18 or over, they can do all types of photographic modelling, so no problem there. (2) But what about the 16 and 17 year olds? In many respects they are above the age of consent, ie for sex as an example. But what are they allowed to do as a model? (a) with parent/guardian consents (b) without consents. Some of the girls have stated they would like to do Artistic semi-nude (topless) or even nude. in some cases, but not all, consent has been granted. Most state they will do Lingerie, again some without consent being asked. (3) There are some aged 14 and 15 who would also like to do the above, but with consents given. (4) An 11 year old would like to do Lingerie, with consents given. (5) An 8 year old has, with parents consents, (in fact it is the parents who want her to do it) offered to also model swimware. I realise that this is a detailed list of request, but I am sure there are laws and rules and guidelines that cover it all. Maybe there are very clear cut laws and rules about it, so infornmation/advice welcome please. Many thanks, dps.
