What is a model release?

Model release is a document which is required for all of the photos with recognizable faces. In simple terms, a model release is a document signed by the person that can be recognized in a photo, giving her or his permission to the photographer to use that photo for commercial purposes. Even if the photo is actually depicting the photographer himself (a “selfie”), we still need to have the model release filled in if you want to sell it on Foap.

Where can I find a sample to fill out?  

Very simple! Just click here!

    • The left side of the document is for the “model” to fill in their data and sign.
    • The right side of the document is for the photographer to fill in and sign.

How can I fill it up?

      • You can print it, sign it and take a photo of it.
      • You can fill up the model release using this link https://www.sejda.com/sign-pdf. Below you can find the instruction on how to do it correctly:

        • 2) Click on each line you want to fill in in order to begin typing
        • 3) To add your signature click on the icon showing a pen on the right (1 of 3 small icons in the middle of the screen) and click "New Signature" and then click "Draw". After you draw it click "Save" and add signature to an appropriate place on the document (you can modify your signature size).
        • 4) Once you finish, click "Apply changes" and click "Download" once the signed PDF is prepared.
        • You can fill it up using a desktop app e.g. Adobe Acrobat.
