  • Model Release....

    Question... (trying not to sound too much like Dwight Shrute):

    I am putting together a softball publication. I have a lot of photographs that I took around the parks with other people in the shot. Some are of crowds and stands intentionally to add to the publication.

    My question is do I need to get a model release for everyone in the image or what? I know there are some experts out there that can help...thanks in advance...and I know, no one here is an attorney and cannot offer legal advice....

    One thing wrong....should have been phrased....

    Not sure about the actual answer to the question though.We hired models.

        I believe you need one for anyone who is recognisible in the photo, but I may be wrong.
        Light a man a fire and he will be warm for a short while. Light a man afire and he will be warm for the rest of his life.

          We do sports catalogues but as I said we use models.
          I wouldnt mind knowing for sure either. For a publication, I don't think you need permission (if you do I broke alot of laws in the past). But I don't know for sure.
          For a catalogue I think you do regardless of wether their face is in it or not. I think it has something to do on wether you are selling a product or its a photo for a story. I have no basis for that except pulling from my own experience, so I could be totally off base.

          Again...I am no help.

                  Great article...
                  So, by reading that as long as it is a PUBLIC EVENT which all of the tournaments are...and all of the shots are of a public nature, (people in a crowd) and will only be used as editorial means not not commercial resale, then I am able to use the photo's without a release.

                  Thanks for the information and link...very handy.

                    Actually, I was referring to applying for employment. I'm kind of mixed on whether or not it would be a good idea, but I think overall, if the card is pretty creative, it could serve as a memorable token....

                    You cannot match onscreen swatches of color matching systems to your on-screen unknown color. I just doesn't work that way.
