Model Release Forms

Our free model release forms are drafted with a variety of uses in mind.

The model release featured on this page is intended for photographing multiple adult models or subjects in the same photograph. The form therefore makes provision for multiple names and signatures.

Not all group photographs will need a signed release. If the persons are not easily identifiable no release is necessary.

If they can be identified but the image is not used in a way that can be seen as an endorsement of or association with something or someone, then generally speaking, a release will not be needed either.

Similarly photographs of recognizable people or property need no release if used for editorial purposes such as newspapers, magazines etc.

The onus for having the required model release forms in place will be on the publisher, but photographers can make their images more commercially usable by having signed releases.

For additional guidelines and links to our other free model release forms - adult model release, minors, property, a shortened version, nude photographs, photo copyright release etc. - please visit our main page on Photography Contracts.

Note: In paragraph 7. of our model release forms we provide space for exclusions. It's really intended for the exclusion of sensitive uses though, and you may want to discuss any reservations your models may have before the shoot. Both Photographer and Models must initial where any additions or alterations are made by hand.





All our model release forms are provided as sample documents and are intended for informational purposes only. A lawyer in your jurisdiction is best equipped to advice on specific legal matters.
