Required to participate as a Heart Gallery Photographer
I, the undersigned, as a photographer for Tampa Bay Heart Gallery hereby agree to the following statements:
- I understand that I am providing a charitable service to Tampa Bay Heart Gallery for the purpose of photographing children who are in need of adoptive families. I understand I will not be financially compensated for this service.
- I understand that I agree to be in compliance with all Florida regulations concerning these children.
- I, under penalty of perjury, certify that I am not a convicted felon, nor under suspicion of committing a felony, in the State of Florida or in any other state or principality.
- I understand that I cannot use the photographs or any representation of these photographs for any other purpose, to include advertising, portfolios, websites or displays.*
- I understand that I must keep confidential any information that I might learn of these children, including such information as current residence, date of birth, last name, school, or any other identifying information.
- I understand that Tampa Bay Heart Gallery and/or any representative or contractor of Children’s Board of Hillsborough County may use the photographs I have taken, without further permission from me, for any use deemed appropriate by the aforementioned entities. I understand that, where possible and feasible, I will be given credit for the photographs I have taken.
- I understand that I cannot hold Tampa Bay Heart Gallery, or any representative or contractor of Children’s Board of Hillsborough County liable for any accident or injury to me or to my property that might occur while photographing the children.
- I understand that my agreement to photograph above-mentioned children is also an agreement to take photographs that, to the best of my ability, highlight the children themselves, fully understanding that the purpose of these photographs is to enable “heart connections” to be made with prospective adoptive families. I agree that if a choice must be made between highlighting my artistic skills, and highlighting a child’s personality, I will choose to highlight the child’s personality.
- I understand that given the nature of this endeavor, I am given no guarantee that my photograph(s) will be displayed. I understand that there are reasons beyond my control for which a photograph might not be displayed, to include adoption before release of the photographs, or a change in the child’s status.
I understand that this agreement shall be forever binding.
