As we mentioned, a photo release form is a document signed by the photographer and given to the talent or client so they can print copies of the work. A signed Photo Release form (also called a Model Release) essentially releases the model's ownership of the images captured to you or your company. With this permission, you can use the photos as you desire, whether it be for a creative art project or for a commercial advertising campaign. It is always a good idea to obtain a Model Release. In fact, some of your clients may require that you have photography releases to use your images in their projects especially if the photos include minors. It’s a violation of your civil liberties. Indemnitee refers to the party being protected in the agreement, and the indemnifier is the party who provides the protection. Be aware of the Data Protection Act. There’s a small chance that the photos you take in public areas could be subject to it.
