How to use a Photo Release Form
Whether you're producing a large, professional photoshoot or quick, candid street photography, it's always important to ensure everyone on camera signs a model release.
A model release form is a contract which grants you, the producer, the right to use the model's likeness and helps you avoid any legal repercussions if the model does not agree with the usage of the final photos.
It's important to have a signed legal document that covers you for any liability that could occur without proper consent. This free model release form provides you with a document that you can customize, print, and bring to set to ensure everyone in your project is able to a sign a model release.
