    How about this model release?

    I've been reading the Alec Soth blog and he posted his model release. Along with it, he says he does not use the photographs for advertising. His consideration is a photograph.

    The release is as follows:
    "In exchange for consideration received, I hereby give permission to Alec Soth to use my name and photographic likeness in all forms and media."

    So, do you think this would actually hold up?

    If the model agrees with it and signs it, yes.

    That's quite similar to my "cut-down" release. Mine was designed to be translated to and from three very different languages without changing the meaning - which is impossible using "legalese".

    I don't want to get the lawyers involved (again), but I'd be tempted to get rid of the "In exchange for consideration received" or specifically state the "valuable consideration" that changed hands. I've always found that generic statement to be rather puzzling.

    Apparetnly this is from Magnum,

    "For value received, I consent to the publication of my photograph used by Magnum Photos, Inc., whether for not with my name or any text, captions, illustrations whatsoever, and I release them from any liability for such use in any and all media."

    I like this one.

    EDIT: There is a "typo". Should read: "...whether OR not..."

    I've decided to go with this:

    "For value received, I consent to the publication and public showing of my photograph(s) used by David B, whether or not with my name or any text, captions, illustrations whatsoever, and I release David B from any liability for such use in any and all media.""

    How about:

    "For value received, I irrevocably relinquish my rights to any future profits or other additional compensation and, hereby consent to the publication and public showing of my photograph(s) used by David B, whether or not with my name or any text, captions, illustrations whatsoever, and additionally I unconditionally release David B from any and all liability for such use in any and all media."

    I am trying to keep this as simple as possible and as little text as possible. I am having a rubber stamp made with the text so that I can stamp it on index cards. Instead of carrying around a notepad and clipboard, I can just carry individual cards. Also makes filing a whole lot easier.
