Frequently asked questions
Is contributing reference photos limited to binary transgender people?
Not at all! If you are non-binary, agender, gender queer or even identify as cisgender, you can submit your photographs.
Why do I have to pay to see the nude reference images?
The purpose of paying for a membership is to increase the protection of models from excessive exposure, as well as to cover the costs of maintaining the website. The domain of the website and host (wix) charges an annual fee and the membership covers this, though we have tried to make this as cheap as possible to keep it accessible, and clothed reference images are free!
What if my images are used for the 'wrong' thing?
Each person who signs up for a membership must read the terms and conditions, which includes only using the photographs for the purposes of art. If someone is found to fall out of these conditions then the model has the right to take a complaint to the person who has breached these conditions.
Do I have to include my face in the photographs?
No. You can blur your face, put a symbol over it, crop the image at the neck, or look away from the camera if you would like to remain anonymous.
Can I use the photographs without crediting or paying the model?
We will always encourage donating to the model (unless stated otherwise) if you are going to use their image in your art - especially if you are expecting to make a profit from this art you create. However, if you are unable to afford this then you do not have to pay this. Credit depends on the model as some may want to remain anonymous.
I want to take photographs to contribute, but have no ideas!
Here are some ideas:
Can you submit porn?
As it can be hard to draw the line between porn and nudity, we would leave this up to personal judgement - however the purpose of this website isn't to showcase porn.
How can I contribute?
Select the Submit page in the menu to let us know what you would like to submit, with your email so we can get back to you!
Will I get paid?
There is no garanteed payment for models to upload their images, however there is an option for you to include your payment link, and users of the site will be encouraged to give you a donation as a token of appreciation.
Is there a minimum number of photos I should contribute?
We reccomend at least 5 images in order to promote engagement. The more you include, the more artists will able to use and feel encouraged to donate to you.
