Contributor Membership Agreement


This website, Real Health Photos (RHP), is owned and operated by Klein Buendel, Inc. (KB). Individuals wishing to contribute photographs to RHP must become a Contributing Member.

How to Contribute

  • Read and accept the RHP "Contributor Agreement.”
  • Create a RHP Member Account.

  • The RHP Review Panel will review your sample photographs.
  • If accepted, you will then be allowed to upload and provide keywords to your images. However, the RHP Review Panel reserves the right to edit tags and descriptions if needed.

PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING "CONTRIBUTOR AGREEMENT.” YOUR ACCEPTANCE OF THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS IS AN ABSOLUTE REQUIREMENT OF CONTRIBUTOR STATUS FOR THIS WEBSITE AND ITS PRODUCTS AND SERVICES.

1. Standards
RHP applies quality standards to every image uploaded to realhealthphotos.com. A review board, the RHP Review Panel, evaluates all photographs to ensure that:

Uploaded images are original works by owner of the RHP Member Account.
Images are professional and do not contain any technical imperfections at full size.
Images are accompanied by permission of the people pictured and owners of private property (retained by photographer), as well as proof of copyright or trademarks.
Images are full-size and ready to use for any application or project.
Images do not have any negative connotations of race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, or gender.
Images are of legal behaviors in one or more states (e.g., marijuana usage).

2. Account Information
In order to be a contributor and upload files to realhealthphoto.com, your RHP Member Account must be completed with accurate information. If information is incomplete or found to be incorrect, your RHP Member Account will be declined. If you are planning to contribute on behalf of a company or agency, there are some additional administrative steps required. RHP may terminate your account at any time, with or without reason. RHP reserves the right to terminate accounts after 2 years of inactivity. Please contact admin@realhealthphotos.com or phone at 1-877-730-0852 for more information.

3. Image Requirements
File Format:
RHP accepts RGB and JPG files only.
Image Size:
The required file size is 1600 x 1200 pixels or larger. RHP will reject photo files smaller than 1600 x 1200 pixels.
Photo size variations will be automatically created from full resolution files uploaded.
Files that have increased pixel dimensions to be larger than the file's native size will also be rejected.

4. Quality Standards
The overall goal of the RHP website is to feature a collection of photographs showing people who are typically under-represented on other stock photography sites. Our studies show that if the models in the photographs match the intended audience of a health message, the visual connection will make the effect of the health information stronger. Because of the lack of diversity in the photographs available, our goal is to offer diverse images of people showing healthy lifestyle behaviors. We are looking for:
People of all races and ethnicities.
People who are overweight or obese.
People who are physically challenged or immobile in some way (i.e. use a cane, walker, or wheelchair).
People of all ages.
Images that will be considered for inclusion:
Diversity: Images representing all social and cultural backgrounds that show the importance of living a healthy lifestyle.
Corporate shots: Illustrate the many sides of modern business addressing health related issues.
Food and Beverages: Cuisines from around the globe that are healthy or depict a healthy lifestyle.
Groups & Teams: People working together to achieve a health goal (i.e., group workouts, community workouts, or healthy family lifestyles).
Holiday & Seasonal Themes: Show ways to celebrate the holidays with a healthy lifestyle (i.e., religious celebrations, local festivals and customs that promote healthy living).
People Interacting: Healthy lifestyles that represent the diversity and multiculturalism of the world.
Religion and Spirituality: Images showing aspects of world beliefs that promote a healthy mind and body.
Science and Technology: Accurate and true depictions of the cutting edge of human knowledge that promotes healthy living.
Social Issues: Powerful images portraying socio-ecological health issues that impact individuals and communities.
Sports: Photographs depicting exercise for fun, fitness, and glory.
Negative Health Behaviors: Images showing unhealthy behavior that can be used for educational comparisons (i.e., before/after, dos and don’ts). NOTE: These images will be limitedly accepted. We acknowledge these photos can represent "what not to do,” but do not want the site overrun with negative health behaviors.
Images that will not be considered for inclusion:
Images of nature or the environment without people.
Images of people not associated with health behaviors.
Still shots of items unrelated to health.
Suitability: Images on the RHP site need to be useful to designers. The RHP Review Panel critiques images on their suitability as stock art based on their technical and quality standards, as well as on their health-related characteristics.
Focus: Technical standards, enforced by the RHP Review Panel, require images to be of professional quality. This requires the image’s main topic to be in focus. Creativity and artistry is highly encouraged. However, blurry and over or underexposed images will not be accepted.
Lighting: RHP images must be well lit and properly exposed. Images with flat light, bad shadows, and poor exposure will not be accepted. Remember, we want professional quality for each image uploaded.
Isolation: Isolating a subject against a solid (generally white or black) background can make for great RHP images. Please take time to insure that the image, though it may be isolated with a white or black background, is in focus and has proper exposure.
Cropping & Negative Space: Cropping standards include not cutting off limbs or parts of the main focal point of the images. Each image, artistic or not, must meet the RHP Review Panel’s cropping standards. Negative space generally is not useful with stock art images unless purposefully leaving room for text in graphic design. Please take time to insure that the negative space and cropping issues are addressed before uploading.
Over-filtering: The RHP Review Panel will not accept over-filtered, over- sharpened, and selective blurring of images.
Borders: The RHP Review Panel will not accept images with borders or border effects applied to them. The subject or background of the image must extend to the edges of the file.
Rotation: The files you submit to RHP must be rotated to the correct orientation so that the subject seems to be in the proper position.
Duplicates & Series: RHP Review Panel will not accept images on the same subject repeated in a series. If you submit multiple images of one subject, please take time to ensure that each image is significantly different from the others in the series.
Nudity: The RHP Review Panel reserves the right to reject files if the subject and composition is considered obscene, pornographic, or in any other way unsuitable for the RHP collection. This includes, but is not limited to, language or material that depicts or describes, in terms patently offensive as measured by contemporary community standards for publishing medium, sexual or excretory organs or activities. This includes patently offensive sexual or excretory references that do not rise to a level of obscenity.
Culturally Offensive or Inappropriate Photos: The RHP Review Panel will assess images for cultural appropriateness and will not accept any photos depicting socially, culturally, or ethnically offensive photographs.

5. Legal Requirements
Trademarks, Logos & Intellectual Property: RHP cannot accept photos in which the subject has been trademarked or copyrighted. Due to copyright law and KB regulations, all logos, trademarks, company names, and product names may not be included in any photo on the RHP website. Any photographs that break this law are forbidden and will be rejected.

6. Title, Description & Keywords
Image Titles: The image title is an important part of the image file page, keywords, and search engines to help get your image noticed. You want your titles to be brief, accurate, and descriptive. If you do not provide a title with your uploaded photographs, the RHP Review Panel may reject your images or create a title if the images qualify all other requirements.

Keywords: The most important tools for gaining attention for your photos are the keywords. Using effective keywords allows those searching for specific features and characteristics to find your images. Remember to include terms that describe the main content, action involved in the image, location, and what concepts the image might convey.
Keep keywords applicable to the photo by adding only words that are represented in the photo.
oRestrictions to adding tags lie in the profile of the person. If a person looks White but is actually Native American and did not identify as "White,” do not tag them as such.
Tag everything objectively.
Tag all forms of the word.
oi.e. both "worry” and "worried”
If the singular version of a word is contained within the plural, tag only the plural form.

7. Formal Performing Arts
Formal performing arts include copyrighted and trademarked shows, plays, musicals, ballets, operas, theatre, readings, fashion shows, and other art forms that require permission to share any media related to a performance. Commercial images are prohibited by the RHP Review Panel unless there is a property release to accompany the media that specifies permission for the RHP site to host and sell the photo on this website. If a performance is nonspecific and can be understood universally, it must not contain anything that breaks copyright and trademark laws. These photos must also be free of company and product names. Keep in mind, these photos must comply with our main website theme to provide health-related photos.

8. Sports
Images of the following are unacceptable:
Professional athletes or professional sports teams
Professional sports uniforms
Professional sporting events and sponsored events such as –
Games, races, practices, rehearsals, promotions, public appearances, lectures, motivational speaking, and any other event that may warrant a property release
The RHP Review Panel will accept sports photography of models who have agreed to be photographed doing a sport in generic, unrecognizable brand clothing with non-logo equipment at non-property right protected locations. As with all models, a model release must be obtained and held by the contributing photographer.


9. Model Releases
RHP regulation photographers must possess a model release that contains a date, signature of model, signature of witness/photographer, terms of use for the photo stating permission to use the photo on websites such as RHP, and any other relevant legal information to protect yourself and the model. A model release is mandatory for each model above the age of 18 or must be signed by a legal parent or guardian for models under 18. State regulations may define legal age differently, so check your own state laws for official requirements. If you upload a batch of photos of the same subject, only one photo release is needed for that person. Contributors will be responsible for retaining all original photo releases in their possession and attest to their existence. Photo releases do not need to be submitted with uploaded photographs.
The following shots must be accompanied by a model release and follow all other regulations:
Photos that indicate an individual’s identity
Photos in which a person can be recognized
Shots of big crowds in which faces are recognizable
Shots from behind
If you are unsure if a shot is acceptable, obtain a model release. The RHP Review Panel reserves all rights to request a model release at any time for any photograph uploaded to the RHP site.
All images of minors, under the age of 18, must have a model release signed by a parent or legal guardian. If a model release is not provided upon request by the RHP Review Panel, all images of that individual will be deleted from the site until further notice. The RHP Review Panel also withholds the right to terminate the contributor’s membership.
If a model release is requested, RHP does not accept digitally created or digitally signed model releases. Script fonts as signatures, e-signatures, or scanning signatures will not be accepted.
A model release template can be found on the RHP website.

10. Property Releases
In each photo that depicts a recognizable location, building, or object, a property release form should be obtained indicating permission to sell and share photographs of this particular image content. Contributors will be responsible for keeping all property releases in their possession and attest to their existence. Property releases do not need to be submitted with uploaded photographs. If you have questions about whether a property release is required, email admin@realhealthphotos.com.

11. Prohibited Uses
The language in the RHP "Purchase Agreement” discusses what a purchasing member can and cannot do with an image after they have licensed it. These rules are set to ensure the RHP website content and images are not used in a way that will harm an individual’s self-image. Images also may not be used for purposes of resale, which includes any media type that would earn money by sale through the creation of print media (i.e. postcards, mugs, t-shirts, posters, advertising, greeting cards).

12. Contributor Rights
All images that have been uploaded and accepted onto the RHP site are henceforth owned by KB and can be used for any purpose as listed in the "Terms of Use.” RHP and its members will have non-exclusive, royalty free rights to these photographs.
