I'm exhausted from searching and was hoping I might be able to count on fellow photogs here to help me out. I have the opportunity to take headshots for Real Estate Agents and to be honest have not used print releases before. I drew up a personal print release for family members to be able to get prints at their local lab but am having trouble turning it into a print release for the agents.
Basically I want them to be able to use their digitals in magazines, ads, websites, etc. which would be considered "commercial use" right?
Can anybody help "fine tune" my release? I really don't want to have to find a lawyer to draw it up.
Here is what I have...

Ideas? I'm stuck on whether they need Editorial rights? Commercial?
