Model Release Information

A model release is a legal document signed by a model, granting permission for their likeness to be used by others. The model release outlines the terms of use, including how the image may be used, where it may be published, and how long it may be used for. It also specifies the compensation the model will receive for the use of their likeness. Model releases are important for protecting the rights of both the model and the person or company using the image. Without a model release, the photographer or company using the image may be at risk of legal action from the model for unauthorized use of their likeness.
