Publishers, web designers, graphic artists, interior decor firms, corporate creative groups can all use stock photography to fulfill their needs.

Royalty Free Stock Photography is a concept whereby the end user of the images pays a single one time license fee to use an image and does not have to pay any additional royalty for repeated use of the images. The buyer does not own the copyright of the images (it remains the property of the photographer) but they have bought a license granting them the right to use the images legally without further payments or interruption from the seller as long as the use complies with the terms and conditions of the licensing agencies End User Agreement (EULA). The EULA protect both the model and photographer from images being used in pornographic, defamatory, or otherwise unlawful or immoral content.

If you shoot TFP a Model Release will be required and some of the images created at that shoot may be offered as Royalty Free Stock.
