Adult model release

Here are several model release forms. Edit them as you will. I make no claims as to their legality in your local.

One of the things you might do is to download the form of you choice. Create a new form with "public information" at the top of the page and "private info" on the bottom of the page. That way if someone needs a copy, you can fold the page in half, photocopy only the top half for "whomever" --- keeps "your private info" separate and private, while at the same time keeping all the information on one sheet. Don't forget to get a separate/new release for each shoot, and if possible print a proof sheet of the shots and staple it to the release form.

It might be a good idea to have the form notarized. If you are a notary as well as the photographer, you can't notarize your own form!<g>
