A Photo Release form is a legal document that grants a photographer or business with the authorization to obtain images for personal or commercial use. An individual on the photos has to provide this authorization requesting payment, royalties, or free of charge.
This form is required when a photograph of a person will be used with the intention of receiving profit - money, promotion, or publication. Every time an individual is photographed by a professional photographer, a standard Photo Release form must be signed to allow the photographer to distribute and use the images for profit.
With the individual's permission, the photographer or the photographic agency can use the photos at their discretion - for a commercial advertising campaign or a creative art project.
