In such cases, the Photographer will use his discretion but cannot be held responsible for a lack of photos of these people.
  5. The Schedule: Both the Client and the Photographer agree that punctuality and cheerful cooperation are essential to producing outstanding photographic results.

The Photographer grants Client permission to use the images taken during the contracted event for Client's professional use in the following manner: Print portfolio and website (including but not limited to blog, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc.) immediately after date of event. Web use shall include an accompanying "Photographed by Jay Tovar" credit line. Any use that exceeds this limited scope is strictly prohibited.
  7. Model Release: The Client grants the Photographer and its legal representatives, heirs, and assigns, the irrevocable and unlimited consent to use the photographs of the Client for editorial, competition, advertising, and any other purpose and in any manner, to alter the photographs without restriction; and to copyright the images. The Client hereby release the Photographer and its legal representatives, heirs, and assigns from all liability and claims in connection with the images.
