One of the questions we get asked regularly is, “Why do I have to get a fully completed model release form?”
The short answer: it not only protects the person being photographed from any unauthorized use of their image, but it protects you from legal action in the future, if the image is used for a business purpose.
The long answer: check out this posting by the American Society of Media Photographers (a great resource in general, by the way).
TIP: Always carry a couple of hard copies of the form in your camera bag, so that you’ll have one ready when the moment strikes!
