What is a Model Release?

A model release is a friendly little agreement between the photographer and the person/people in the photo, ensuring that everyone has agreed that the photo can be used for commercial purposes.

A model release is needed when a person’s features are visible and means they can be recognized. This includes images where a persons face can be seen, or where other distinctive features such as birthmarks or tattoos can be seen.
