Instructions and Checklist
Talent/Model Release

   A Talent/Model Release allows a photographer (or company) to obtain permission from a Model/Talent to use his or her performance, picture or likeness on film, video or photo, for advertising, trade, or any other lawful purposes.

   This Talent/Model Release is for adults (i.e. over the age of 18 or other applicable age of majority). If the Talent/Model is a minor, a different form, called “Talent/Model Release for Minors needs to be used.

   The Talent/Model should hand-write (a) their name at the beginning of the form; (b) their address in the space under their signature; and (c) date and sign the Release.

   The photographer or company obtaining the release should write his/her/its name in the second blank space in the first paragraph.

   The photographer or company obtaining the release should keep the original of the signed Release. This document may later be useful to prove that consent to take the pictures or make the film or video was properly obtained and will prevent a claim by the Talent/Model that he or she never gave consent. The Talent/Model should be given a copy of the Release.

   These forms are not intended and are not a substitute for legal advice. Laws vary from time to time and from province to province. These forms should only be a starting point for you and should not be used without consulting with a lawyer first. Before signing this document you should have a lawyer review it to make sure it fits your particular situation. You should also consult a lawyer whenever a document is negotiated with another party.

General Information
Talent/Model Release

When a picture, film or video is taken of a person, the photographer is the owner of the picture (photographer is also meant to include video and filmmakers or any company that produced the pictures, film or video). However, the individual whose picture was taken has rights in his or her likeness. Although the individual photographer owns the picture, it should not be put to any commercial use unless the person in the picture consents. The use of someones likeness without their consent, may constitute an invasion of privacy, and subject the user to payment of damages.

A Talent/Model Release allows a photographer or company to obtain permission from a Model/Talent to use his or her performance, picture or likeness on film, video or photo, for advertising, trade, or any other lawful purposes (i.e. in the advertising of a product or service, on a website, in a commercial etc...).

This document may later be useful to prove that consent to take the pictures or make the film or video was properly obtained and will prevent a claim by the Talent/Model that he or she never gave consent.

The rights can be granted to the photographer or to a company (i.e. shooting pictures / video or selling a product or service).

If the Talent/Model is a minor, a different form called “Talent/Model Release for Minors (available at findlegalforms.com) should be used.

These forms are not intended and are not a substitute for legal advice. Laws vary from time to time and from province to province. These forms should only be a starting point for you and should not be used without consulting with a lawyer first. Before signing this document you should have a lawyer review it to make sure it fits your particular situation. You should also consult a lawyer whenever a document is negotiated with another party.
