    Google. That's where I got mine and modified it to suit.

    Stock agencies have broad releases available too.

    just use the istock release

    it's under support on the website.
    there is one for people(including a space for the adult to sign for the minor)
    and one for property.

    That's the one I've been using - sightly modified. I had one client who took great exception to it though - that it was too long and complicated and basically allowed anything under the sun to be done with their images short of porn. (She's probably the ONLY one who really read it).

    Have you ever had any reactions to signing model releases?

    no, but i also clearly explain them and encourage each and every person that signs to read it thoroughly and encourage them to ask questions if they don't understand any of it.

    that's the reason i like the istock releases, because there aren't any corners cut. you really need to educate the people you're shooting before you hand them the form, so they don't feel like they are overwhelmed.

    No. Mosher suggested it hoping to get you sued.

    :lol: I don't mean to be snarky, but it gets frustrating trying to help you when you don't seem to help yourself a lot of the time.

    And for god's sake, if you find it complex....please make sure you understand it before you try to explain it to a client.

    I....I don't even know what to say.

    But yes, please understand the release before trying to explain it to others. It is NOT complex or worded difficultly etc. Its all pretty straightforward...and that is part of why I suggested you use this release...the simplicity. Its all on one page and most of the page is spaces for you and the subjects to fill in info.

    yeah after really reading over it mosher you are right its pretty straightforward just looks scary at first i guess LOL... and then when i saw Alberta was thinking are people gonna freak over that. i just wanted something cause to try n learn ive offered some people free photos if they let me shoot them or there kids etc.. but ive told them they have to sign a release so i can use the photos in my portfolio.. im assuming that's the best way to describe it to them..

    Dear god yes. ESPECIALLY since they aren't family or friends. I'm just surprised it wasn't a "no-brainer" ! :)

    I think if i was doing a wedding id definitely want something to cover my butt however i dont know exactly what you'd need.. I was liek you was unsure i needed one where im not a registered business but the feedback ive been receiving is get one to cover your but.. im thinking youd need one different than this one ( i could be wrong) i remember hearing something about stating how many prints you are Guaranting them..

    A model release is not the same....and a contract should be MUCH more detailed than just about the # of prints guaranteed.

    So the one you guys are talking about on here are for more portrait, family, maternity style photo shoots?? or is it saying that you have the rights to the photos and the right to do what ever you please with them?

    No no.

    The link posted here is for a MODEL RELEASE.....not a contract for shooitng something like a wedding.

    I used a Model Release when I was portfolio building.....now I use a contract which is MUCH more detailed.

    Both keep copyright with me.

    PLEASE research this in detail before agreeing to such an important event.

    thats why im here asking!!! :) this is my starting point. and thanks for clearing that up!
    is there such a thing as a contract for a portrait photography? (maternity, family etc)
    or do you just have them sign the model release ??

    thanks for clarifying that tanya! now i know for the future.. after portfolio building its best to use a contract not a model release for any paid shoots
