I currently just got into modeling and I have only worked with 2 photographers. I was wondering how important it is to sign a model release form, the legal technacalities of it all, and how I can bring it up before a shoot? Does anyone have a good example of a standard form I could use?

A model release is VERY important, for both you and the photographer. The release spells out exactly how each of you is allowed to use a photograph. If you'd like to see a sample, I'll be happy to e-mail you the forms I use. There is no "right" answer, it's all about what you and the photographer are willing to allow the other person to do with the images. That really depends on a lot of things, such as who requests the shoot, whether any money changes hands, etc.

Most photographers routinely provide a model's release to be signed by models they hire or work with TFP. There are many model releases on the web, but often a custom release will be created depending on the agreement reached between the model and photographer. I always try to get the release signed at the beginning of the shooting session and I also get a photograph of the model's IDs.

If no model release is signed, then the photographer basically may have a hard time using the photos for anything. The photographer does normally own the copyright to the photos even if there is no release, but that does not allow him to generally use the photos without the model's permission. That is why it is so important that the release be agreed upon and signed.

Also it is important for the model to get a release signed and that that release spells out what she can do with any photos she receives from the shoot.

Most of the time, when I hire a model, I send the model a copy of the release in advance so they can approve it or ask for changes if needed.

Hope this helps.

Cheers,
rfs
