I am looking to take photos of a model who is 18, but in High School. She is willing to pose nude. Is it legal for me to take nude photos of her, with a model consent form? Thanks.

Hi,

I'm Lucy, and I'd be happy to answer your questions today.

There is no law that prohibits taking nude photographs of an adult model. It is not relevant that she is in high school, but you may want to request proof that she's passed her 18th birthday - if it turns out that she's lying, a falsified release won't protect you.

if she is legal i am ok, but if she lies about her age, I would be charged with a crime? what crimes could i get charged with?
Expert:  Lucy, Esq. replied 6 months ago.

If she lies about her age, then it would be child pornography. The fact that she lied wouldn't be a defense. If she's really ID, then it's fine. You can ask for ID before you do anything.
