A photo release form may be a legally binding document that businesses and photographers should use when they work with models of any kind. It provides the business or the photographer the legal right to use the image or likeness of the image with or without identifying the model. It also includes language that states that the model will not receive any further compensation for use of the image. Because a photo release form may be legally binding, it is important to read it and understand its contents before signing it.

What is a Photo Release Form? 

A photo release form is used to secure the use of an individual's likeness either with or without noting their identification along with the image. This likeness is typically in a photograph (including those taken by amateur photographers). An organization, photographer, or website may use this form in order to ask an individual for permission to use a photo of the individual.

For the photo copyright release form to be properly completed, it must include information about both Parties -  the organization that wishes to use the photograph and the individual represented in the photograph. The individual will need to make a sworn statement allowing the organization to use the image. Before it is official, it must be signed and dated. It's often helpful to provide blank spaces, such as "print name" and "phone number," to lead you and the model through the completion process.

Here is a checklist to help determine whether you should use a release form:

  1. Is the person clearly the subject of the photo?
  2. Can you foresee the photo being used for any commercial use, either immediately or eventually?
