There are a number of easy-to-use model release form apps out there already, but Snapwire wants to do better. The photo marketplace has launched its own free app called Releases. Designed for professional photographers, the app lets you easily create, sign, and send model and properly releases using your iPhone.
“Releases are important because they protect you from potential lawsuits where people claim invasion of privacy or defamation after you’ve photographed them,” Snapwire says. “Model releases state that the person in the photo consents to be photographed, as well for you to use the images.”
“Model releases apply to any situation where the person is recognizable, and are extremely important to obtain.”
The Releases app includes standard industry templates provided by Snapwire, ASMP, Getty Images, and Shutterstock.
