Model Releases - Frequently Asked Questions

Immediately after our session, I will ask you to sign a model release. 

The following information is meant to explain why I ask for this document.  It is perfectly understandable that you might be hesitant to give your signature; I hope that the information below helps to allay fears that you may have. 

Why do photographers ask for these forms? 

In order to use a photograph publicly, photographers often need proof that identifiable people in the picture have given their consent for public exhibit, whether in print or online, including social media, or to be sold as artwork. Photographers, including myself, cannot risk legal problems if they share, print or sell images without express permission from the models. An all-purpose, all-use blanket model release resolves that issue. The fundamental text in my model release can be found all over the internet if you search “model release.” 

Will you get rich off me? 

Probably not. My intention is to include your photograph as part of my artwork. Honestly, 95% of my images are just displayed for free online, either in my social media posts or on my website. But, of course, I’d like to sell my work as prints and do so occasionally. That said, like most artists who have other primary means of income, sales happen very infrequently. I do this out of a passion to create, not to earn money.  I am retired and very happy to be so. By the way, I don't sell my work for stock images, advertising, third-party licensing, or anything else except my artwork.

Why is the document so complicated? 

Because lawyers are lawyers and want all eventualities covered. I know it's overkill, but the basic waiver content is industry-standard, tested over time, so it seems to make the most sense to use this format.

Can I see the release you want me to sign?

Of course. Click here. I won't ask you to sign it until the end of our session, mainly because I can't expect you to affirm that you've been treated respectfully and professionally until after the shoot is over. Feel free to ask me any questions!
