I will be photographing a school's events and it's students for a week. However, I am not sure if the standard portfolio release will suffice given the age of the subjects.
- I am primarily there as a teacher, but took the opportunity to build my portfolio as this is a new genre for me.
- I have the verbal go-ahead from the event organiser of course, but at the same time, given that the children will be between 13-14, I wonder what I should do.
- My intents for use are only to advertise my services, non-commercial, no libel. However they would not always be background members, some pictures would be group shots, candid moments etc.
My best guess is that having the event organizer sign the release should be easier than 60 + children without a guardian, also because they are travelling from another continent to the EU. I imagine the event organiser is responsible for them during their visit.
