Release question - after the fact

With the owner's permission, I recently photographed a "boot camp" style fitness workout for a college assignment.

Now, after the fact, they would like to use the photos for some advertising. I am OK with this, and we have agreed to terms, but now I need to get releases before they can be used, correct?

I am assuming it is OK to obtain releases after the photos have been taken? (That is even assuming I can find those people as the class session ended a week ago.)

To my knowledge, the boot camp owners don't have any language in their contract about being photographed. I am hoping that I can just use a "generic" form (with the appropriate names, etc. inserted.)

Thanks in advance!

Yes, you can always obtain a release after the photos are taken (so long as the person is willing to sign it ;)).

Ask.

Be sure to include a line in your contract that NO rights have been conveyed until you are paid in full.

Forgot: I put a line at the bottom of my invoice stating what rights have been conveyed.
