A model release form is an agreement between a photographer and a model that allows the former to sell the photos and use them for commercial purposes. It's a good practice to get the model release form signed before the actual photoshoot happens — to avoid any misunderstandings and legal issues.
If you're looking to streamline the process of signing model release forms for your photography studio, the best way to go is to use an online release form to collect the consent from your models. Your models could then fill out the form any time and anywhere before visiting your studio. We created this template so you could get started quickly — just click the button to start editing the form in Paperform.
It's important to understand the differences between model release, print release, and photo release forms. Print and photo release forms are signed by photographers so that their clients could print photos and use them for personal purposes. Oftentimes, those forms are signed together with the model release form.
