Understanding how to legally protect your photography business can be overwhelming.
From marketing materials to portfolio usage, knowing where and how you can use your images can be intimidating.
That’s why we offer affordable release forms tailored to professionals just like you. Our team of lawyers and photographers at TheLawTog® develop, review, and approve every release.
We think this is a pretty awesome combo—legal expertise and photographer know-how.
This bundle includes model releases (2) + print release (1).
If you plan to use your images for advertising or portfolio purposes, a model release form is an essential way to protect your photography business.
A model release is generally signed by the subject of a photograph. It gives you permission to license or use the image.
This form also releases any claims the client may have to future compensation for use of images. This protects you from legal action and eliminates the unknowns around publishing images.
These model release forms allow clients to easily and legally give permission for use of their photographic images (not audio or video). The model releases included in this bundle are not niche specific. Please see the niche specific model release if you're looking for a more tailored document.
- General Release: includes language covering adults and minors
- Limited Release: allows client to limit use of their images by the photographer
From printing rights to social media usage, the complexities of legally protecting your images can be intimidating.
Since many clients opt for digital files to share on social media and print themselves, giving clients digital files is a great way to earn extra income. But you need to do it the right way.
If you want to retain rights to all images, a print release form provides the legal protection you need, while giving permissions to the client for digital image reproduction.
A print release form is an agreement between you and your client. This template gives your client permission to print and share images for personal use. It does not permit them to use images for commercial use or other reasons. To help educate and protect your art, this document also reemphasizes copyright laws.
Not only do these forms provide legal protection, it positions you as a credible business owner. Clients will respect your clear rules, detailed expectations, and you!
As an affordable way to protect your business, our lawyer-drafted, photographer-approved releases is a must-have investment.
