What is a Model Release Form?
A model release form is a legal document that grants permission to use a person’s name, image, likeness, or other personal information in a piece of media such as a photograph, video, or website. The release also provides the photographer or other rights-holder with the consent to reproduce, publish, and distribute the image of the model. A model release form is required for any kind of commercial usage of an image of an individual, even if the individual is not recognizable.
A model release form typically includes the name and contact information of both the model and the photographer; the purpose of the project for which the model has agreed to participate; the location of the shoot; the terms and conditions under which the photograph can be used; the duration of the agreement; and indemnification. It may also include the signature of an authorized representative of the photographer/rights holder, acknowledging their approval of the final agreement.
