Legal information

Model releases

A model release is a signed legal document from your subjects giving you permission to use and sell their photos. Don't be mistaken, this is not just for professional models, anyone or anything that is the subject of a photograph is considered to be a "model".

Freeimages requires you to upload a signed model release with each photo that has identifiable people in it.

If you would like to learn more about model releases, please visit Dan Heller's website. He has a great article on them.

For your convenience here are some model release documents that you can download, print and fill out. If you have your own ones you can use those aswell, but they have to be essentially the same. We can't do anything with photos that are not allowed to be distributed on our site.
