What is a Model Release?
- A model release also known as a liability waiver is a legal release granting permission to publish a photograph of a person in one form or another.
- Publishing an identifiable photo of a person without a model release signed by that person can result in civil liability for whoever publishes the photograph.
- Please note that the photographer is typically not the publisher of the photograph, but usually licenses the photograph to someone else to publish.
