In the past, I have been very relaxed when it comes to having models sign model release forms. There’s a lot of confusion that surrounds the concept of model releases, copyright and publishing rights; indeed, depending on which part of the world you live in or where your work is published, the copyright and publishing laws of that place may differ, but fundamentally, a release is required to grant a photographer copyright of an image and a photographer automatically has the right to publish (within limits) his/her work.  Model releases can also play an important roll in protecting the work.

There’s an ocean of different model release forms on line, but I thought I’d share the content of mine here on the blog for you all the use freely : (download here)
