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)

My name is Adam Backer. I have been seriously passionate about photography since 2006, though the urge for this form of art started during my childhood days. I am from India, and I belong to a place known as ‘Gods own country’ – Kerala. Professionally a Civil / Structural Design Engineer in the Oil & Gas sector specialized in Analysis and Design of On-Shore structures, Water sewage treatment plants and Industrial Structures. I have graduated from CUSAT (Cochin University of Science & Technology, Kerala). Presently based in Dubbo (NSW), Australia, I find time for this craze of mine during my weekends and also during vacations.
