New release templates

posted on 20th of december, 2011

We are launching new and improved versions of our branded model and property release forms. The updating process is necessary, because the now outdated documents did make clear all the information we legally require from the signing parties on the present day.

Also as it is a niche market, choose your images well and submit up to 5 of the best ones.

If you shoot parades or rodeo's do you have to get model release for everyone that is visible.??? As I shoot a lot of rodeo's, barrel racing and parades in my travels.

About me

I am a graphic designer, webmaster, photographer. Live in Estonia. 3 kids. Mac-person. Nikon-person. Initially gave my images for free back in 2003.

Mostly shoot events, family, object... [Read more]
