Photographer release form

Hi, I'm doing my first retouching job. It's for a model who wants her photo's retouched for her own use. I know I need to get permission from the photographer but I've never made a Photographer release form before. I've seen a lot of samples for models but none for Photographer.

Can anyone help?

Re: Photographer release form

If you google Photo Release Form you will find a ton of them like the one at the following link. Just modify it with wording that is relevant to your specific requirements.
Regards, Murray

OPK, this is an old thread and the link no longer goes to a valid page. Can anyone answer Artist55's question again -- for me.

Re: Photographer release form

You should be able to ask the photographer for a release or a copy of the release the model signed with his permission to use the image.

As a practical matter, you typically need the model's permission as well, not just the photographer's. Since the photographer should already have that, most releases should have language in them permitting the photographer to release the photo(s) to you, e.g. by requesting that you publish them on your site.

When in doubt it's best to consult an attorney, at least to review the language to make sure you're permitted and covered. Especially when you're new at this.
