What is a Model Release Form?

A Model Release Form is a contract that gives a photographer or videographer permission to use images or video of a model. It gives them commercial rights to use the photos or video for promotion, advertising or resale.

By signing the form, the model “releases” the rights. This means the model acknowledges and agrees that the artist can do anything they would like with the content, including publish, republish, distribute, edit or change the images or recordings.

Who can use this Model Release Form template?

  • Photographers
  • Videographers
  • Artists
  • Creatives
  • Anyone who uses photography for a commercial purpose that identifies people
  • All Australian States and Territories

Do I need a Model Release Form?

Yes, absolutely! This is one of the most important legal documents for a photographer or videographer, along with your Photography Contract.

You should always get a signed release form before shooting, regardless of whether the model is paid or unpaid.

Even if you don’t have any plans to license the photos, an opportunity may present itself well after the shoot. To prevent future issues, make it a standard practice to get the model release form signed before shooting.

If you don’t get a signed release form, you won’t own the rights to the photographs or video, which means you can’t publish them on your website, sell them commercially or otherwise use them.

What does this Model Release Form template include?

Our comprehensive template covers everything you need:

  • Parties – the photographer/videographer and the model
  • Permission – authorisation from the model
  • Assignment of Copyright – transferring the rights for the photos to the photographer
  • Purpose of use  – what the photos can be used for
  • Indemnity – an important legal clause
  • Terms for Minors – an extra step if the model is under 18 years of age

Do I only need this for paid models?

No, a “model” can be any person featured in the photographs or video. If you want to use the content later on for promotion or commercial purposes, make sure you get a signed release form; otherwise, they could make a legal claim against you in the future.

Is a Model Release the same thing as a Photo Release?

No, they are different.

As we mentioned, a model release is signed by the talent so the photographer can license or use the image. On the other hand, a photo release form is a document signed by the photographer and given to the client to print copies of the work (i.e. portraits, headshots, or wedding photos, etc.).

Is this Model Release Form template legally binding?


All of our templates have been drafted by qualified Australian lawyers who hold an Australian legal practicing certificate.
