Model Releases - What I Use when Creating Commercial Content

When creating any commercial content that features a recognizable individual or individuals, a Model Release is used, which grants permission to the photographer and the right to use the model’s likeness under the conditions laid out in the release.



I use the standard releases from Shutterstock.  Here are links to the releases that I use:


Model Release for Adult

Model Release for Minor

Property Release


These are standard releases, and although I often submit my images to multiple agencies, it is common practice that only one release is required. Each agency will accept any standard release from another agency.
