Would someone be as so kind to explain, with some detail and in non-attorney jargon how the use of images laws work? Say a company hosts an event and takes pictures either on their cell phone or digital camera, is consent still required?

I understand that any pictures identifying an individual needs written consent. This could be faces, tattoos, birthmarks, etc. I've never fully understood when it is okay to use pictures and when it actually needs written consent.

Are you legally covered if you add a line item to a customer-business agreement that any photos or videos taken may be used in business marketing material? It seems silly to walk person to person to ask them to sign this paper so we can use this picture I just took of you. Curious how others address this.
